Latest Loveliness from John Sweeney

It seems too good to be true. John Sweeney, our Congressman in New York's 20th, has come out in the defense of on-line gambling.

I forgot to mention before that Sweeney has also come out in defense of Tom Delay. From The AP:

Sweeney, other House GOPs seek to counter attacks on DeLay

(Washington - AP) — Upstate Congressman John Sweeney is part of a group of 30 Republican House members meeting to counter Democratic attacks on Majority Leader Tom Delay over ethics questions.

DeLay, a Texas Republican, has come under attack for overseas trips and his association with lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who is now under federal investigation. The questions have put House Republicans on the defensive. On Wednesday, they voted to remove ethics rules changes that Democrats charged were designed to protect DeLay. Sweeney's spokeswoman Melissa Carlson said the congressman believes Republicans should start fighting back.

Says Carlson — quote — "Congressman Sweeney and fellow Republicans are working to bring the focus in Congress back to the issues at hand: tax cuts and economic growth, not individual members' trips abroad, or individual attacks on members."
