Congressman Sodrel Takes Some More Money From Icky, Corrupt People

FrownIt would appear that the Ninth District's beloved U.S. Rep. Mike Sodrel has more tainted money in his campaign bank account.

In October 2004, Sodrel received a donation from the aptly named "American Prosperity" PAC, which belongs to now-former U.S. Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, who resigned earlier this week after pleading guilty to fraud, conspiracy to commit bribery and tax evasion.

Discerning readers may recall that Sodrel's spokesman, Cam Savage, told the Seymour Tribune in October that the Congressman would not be returning money he received from indicted U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay's PAC because "[w]e believe in the presumption of innocence in this country, and we should wait to see what happens in this case. Congressman DeLay says he's innocent and plans to fight it and wants his day in court."

Does that mean, Cam, that since Cunningham pleaded guilty, the check's in the mail on its way back to California?

*muffled tap-tap-tapping of an impatient shoe on carpet*

So, what'll it be? We're waiting to see how you weasel out of this one.

Never trust an elected official who has facial hair--and that goes for both male and female elected officials.

Thank you, thank you. Please remember to tip your waitresses.

All the more reason for moderates and sensible Republicans to back Baron Hill's return to Congress.

Bring back...
Bring back...
Bring back my Baron to me to me!

Before the last election, Sodrel visited countless churches in the district. Seems like that would have helped with his ethics and values.

My mother said a person is judged by the company he keeps. Looks like Sodrel has been sleeping with the fleas Delay and Cunningham. He wants the easy money.

Go Soddrell....Dems are just jealous!!!

Everyone, check under the nearest bridge. Some poor village is missing its troll.
