Bob Ney, Budding Radio Personality
Proving yet again that there's life after corruption, former congressman Bob Ney (R-Ohio), a convicted felon, is set to become host of an Ohio radio program about politics.
Ney served 17 months in prison and more time in a halfway house after pleading guilty in October 2006 to giving political favors in exchange for a golf trip, other gifts and campaign donations arranged by infamous lobbyist Jack Abramoff. His original two and-a-half year prison sentence was reduced after Ney went to rehab for alcohol abuse.
And in addition to paying a $6,000 fine, he was scheduled to be on supervised release for two years after getting out of the slammer. So the Feds should have an easy time keeping an "ear" on him now that he'll be a radio personality.
