Info: Our guest is former Ohio Republican Congressman Bob Ney to discuss his recent memoir titled, “Sideswiped: Lessons Learned Courtesy of the Hit Men of Capitol Hill.” Ney discusses his eleven years in Congress representing Ohio’s 18th district. He describes being sent to serve for thirty months at the Federal Corrections Facility in Morgantown, West Virginia. He was in prison for 12 months and was released to a 12 step alcohol rehabilitation program in Columbus, Ohio for five more months. He describes entering prison and what it was like to go from a “law maker to a law breaker.” He pleaded guilty in 2006 to a charge of conspiracy to defraud the United States and to a charge of falsifying financial disclosure forms. He relates in detail how he came to Washington with the best of intentions, and was instead sidetracked by the enticement of money and an addiction to alcohol. He suggests that little has changed on Capitol Hill with respect to lobbying members of Congress and the lure of money in politics.
