Overview

Formerly Jailed Congressman Discusses Boehner & Others in New Book Out of the ashes of the Jack Abramoff Indian lobbying scandal rises Bob Ney, the former Congressman of Ohio who went to prison for his role in the event. In his new book, Sideswiped: Lessons Learned Courtesy of the Hit Men of Capitol Hill (Changing Lives Press; March 2013), Ney shares his side of the story, naming names along the way and explaining why the US Congress hasn't learned any lessons from the scandal. In 2006, Ney pled guilty to federal charges of corruption and falsification of federal documents in connection with Jack Abramoff, a Washington super lobbyist-turned criminal. As a six-term member of congress, Ney found himself caught up in a culture of greed, backstabbing, and corruption that eventually destroyed his career. In Sideswiped, Ney recounts the events leading up to his resignation, his own guilt, and how a powerful member of congress and the Bush Administration officials played leading roles in both the Abramoff scandal and Ney's own downfall. One such figure is current Speaker of the House John Boehner, who Ney says persuaded Ney to step down as Congressman in exchange for a "comparable job" and legal defense money, offers that Ney says were never fulfilled.
