Govenor Taft's Aide Helped Noe For White House Visit

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Reports published Thursday said an assistant to Ohio Gov. Bob Taft's former chief of staff lobbied the White House to get top Republican donor Tom Noe invited to a reception to Ohio State University's national championship football team.

The Blade of Toledo reports that an aide to former Taft chief of staff Brian Hicks sent e-mails to Collister Johnson, the White House's former associate director of political affairs, in 2003, asking if Noe could attend the Ohio State reception.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that Johnson told Taft's office that the Ohio State reception was one of many involving sports teams that day and that schedulers were -- quote "trying to keep the numbers down."

The Blade says that Noe, Taft and Hicks attended the event.

4. Attack mode it right, and not just for state offices
Yesterday the dems took out a full page ad attacking my congressman Freedom Fries Ney. We got a very expensive fact sheet in the mail yesterday from the Ney camp. Today I was push polled from the dems on how I thought Ney was performing. They are getting ready to drag him down when they take down DeLay. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy. It looks like the national party is throwing us some big time money. :woohoo:
