'Most Corrupt' Blunt gets AmTaliban seal of approval
You can find out why CREW put Blunt on their top 13 corrupt list here.
Roy Blunt, Tom DeLay’s bootlicker from Missouri, who got tapped by House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) to purportedly keep the House Majority Leader seat warm for Tom DeLay, gets a big thumbs up from the Family Research Council. Golden boy Tony Perkins:
“I am confident that House Whip Roy Blunt will continue Tom DeLay’s efforts to move forward with pro-family public policies which drove turnout among values voters in the last election. Congressman Blunt has been a recipient of Family Research Council’s ‘True Blue Award’ which is given to members of Congress who have consistently voted pro-life and pro-family.
“Family Research Council looks forward to working with Congressman Blunt in the coming days as Congress considers tax relief for charitable giving, an amendment protecting marriage, a fetal pain bill and a ban on human cloning.”
Meanwhile, do you think Tony cares that Roy turned up on this list — Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington‘s Beyond DeLay: The 13 Most Corrupt Members of Congress. See some familiar names on this list?
For the first time, CREW has compiled and analyzed all these members’ transgressions in tandem with the federal laws and congressional rules they may have violated.
CREW has also launched a new website, www.beyonddelay.org, which details the tainted thirteen’s violations and encourages visitors, through the website, to contact their member of Congress to ask for an investigation of these members.
The 13 members are:
— Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO)
— Rep. Randy Cunningham (R-CA)
— Rep. Tom Feeney(R-FL)
— Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA)
— Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (R-CO)
— Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH)
— Rep. Richard Pombo (R-CA)
— Rep. Rick Renzi (R-AZ)
— Rep. Charles Taylor (R-NC)
— Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)
— Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA)
— Senator Bill Frist (R-TN)
— Senator Conrad Burns (R-MT)
Someone should remind Dave Dreier that his being a big self-loathing homo was perceived as a bigger liability to Denny Hastert and his bigot colleagues than Roy Blunt being one of the 13 most corrupt legislators. Nice bunch of folks you’re hanging out with, huh Davey?
