Madam Foxx Embraces the Sleaze

It's in the wind this a.m. that House Majority Leader Roy Blunt ("Tom Delay Lite") will appear in Winston-Salem tomorrow for a Virginia Foxx fundraiser.

That's Roy Blunt who has many connections to lobbyist Jack Abramoff. That's Roy Blunt whose political action committee shared office space with Tom DeLay's political action committee, which gave The Madam multiple thousands of dollars. "The [Blunt & DeLay] committees have shared committee coordinators and used the same political consulting firm. Texas prosecutors investigating DeLay have subpoenaed bank records related to $150,000 that his special convention committee gave to Blunt's state PAC in the spring of 2000" (according to the Kansas City Star). That's Roy Blunt whom the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington has named one of "the 13 most corrupt members of Congress."

Every level seeks its own water.
