Ohio congressman Bob Ney identified in Abramoff lobbying scandal
Bob Ney gave up his chairmanship of the House Administration Committee on Sunday amid an influence-peddling probe that has roiled the Republican Party.
Ney, a six-term Ohio Republican, was under heavy pressure from House Speaker Dennis Hastert to give up his chairmanship after Ney was implicated in the scandal surrounding lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who pleaded guilty to corruption charges January 3.
GOP sources said Friday that Hastert, an Illinois Republican, was moving to push the embattled Ney from his post.
