Roy Blunt Hired Consultant Who's Also Indicted

The political committee of Rep. Roy Blunt who is temporarily replacing Rep. Tom DeLay as House majority leader, has paid roughly $88,000 in fees since 2003 to a consultant under indictment in Texas with DeLay, according to federal records.

Keri Ann Hayes, executive director of the Rely on Your Beliefs Fund, said the organization has been has been satisfied with the work done by Jim Ellis, but has not discussed whether he will be retained.

"We haven't had that conversation," she said. So far, she added, Ellis' indictment had no impact on his work.

Records on file with the Federal Election Commission show the fund linked to Blunt retains Ellis' firm, J.W. Ellis Co., and has made periodic payments for services. Political Money Line, a nonpartisan Internet tracking service, places the total at about $88,000

2. OMG...lol....

They are really fucking up big time. They are doing the same things they were BEFORE the media started reporting on this stuff. You could get away with it then, boys, but times have changed!

THEY HAVEN'T LEARNED.

3. Bwahahaha! And yes, it's an outrage...
..but I cannot help but laugh at the growing ineptitude of culturally corrupt Rethuglicans. They's gone from being the Party of Sonny to Party of Fredo almost overnight.

26. Not changing the topic...
but as I read the posts on this thread, and saw your picture of our Andy, I smiled, trying to imagine what he would have to say. The stench of corruption permeates all of the neocons...and their leader, the Chimp, has the worst odor of all. Phew! I smell monkey shit!

10. I thought the protests revitalized our efforts
and continued our momentum, despite organizational issues. They energized the attendees, that is for sure.

The way to get in power is to get the GOP out, so it is important to continue to focus like a laser beam on their corruption issues, IMO.

17. We are running against the Bush machine
unless and until another GOP candidate comes to the fore. You have a right to your opinion, but I found the protests envigorating.

I see you like my sig pic.

30. Who are you calling radicals,
ClintonFor08? Anyone who 'loathes Moore is a 'radical' against justice and integrity. The only activism that works for far right conservatives are lies, convolution of the facts, propaganda and fear mongering. Poof...

40. Of course protests are a valuable tool for advancing causes
They aren't the only tool, but the attention they generate is crucial in order to "expose the crooked repukes"

And, of course, Gore did beat bush in 2000, by millions of votes. On that, also see:

Buglosi's "None Dare Call It Treason"
http://www.thenation.com/doc/20010205/bugliosi

Carter says Gore won 2000 election

Got to be on the Republican payroll. They only approve that kind of pay for connected Republicans.
