For the good of the Party: So long Sucka!

Here's a little blurb from Newsweek on the Abramobb scandal: Bob Ney: Will Ethics Scandals Hurt GOP Bids in 2006?

Not much to it except for an interesting quote from Grover Norquist (aka the GOP's Snidely Whiplash):
In a breakfast with reporters, Republican activist and key White House ally Grover Norquist, whose own dealings with Abramoff have come under scrutiny, suggested if Ney is facing a "serious legal problem," he "should step aside for the good of the team." While no Republican has publicly asked Ney to step down in '06, party officials privately admit worries over the investigation, which reportedly includes other lawmakers. According to The Wall Street Journal, the Justice Department is now probing Abramoff's dealings with DeLay, Rep. John Doolittle and Sen. Conrad Burns, all of whom are up for re-election in 2006.
