What better way to prepare for a fresh round of dirty laundry-airing infighting than to hear former Rep. Bob Ney, R-Ohio, run his former colleagues through the wringer all over again.
To commemorate the 10-year anniversary of its Sunday night gabfest, “Q&A ,” C-SPAN has been re-running some of the interview show’s greatest hits throughout the holidays. The Jan. 1 episode, scheduled to air at 7 p.m. EST, includes a conversation with the six-term lawmaker that fell furthest from grace as a result of the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal.
The 2013 replay, which took place during the promotional tour for Ney’s tell-all memoir, “Sideswiped: Lessons Learned Courtesy of the Hit Men of Capitol Hill,” appears to be timelier than ever given the career-ending hit New York Republican Michael G. Grimm’s political life has taken in recent days. Ney, naturally, remains skeptical of Grimm’s exit strategy.
If the Speaker promised him something, as he did me, hope he got it in writing! Michael Grimm announces resignation http://t.co/g3pZnUfUjR — bobney (@bobney) December 30, 2014Looks like 2015 is gonna be a doozy.
