Uh, Congressman?

This is pretty funny, and revealing:

Ohio Republican Chairman Bob Bennett said Thursday that he'd ask Rep. Bob Ney to resign from Congress if he were indicted on felony charges.


"No party boss tells my constituents what to do," Ney said. "They will decide this thing."


Asked if Ney planned to step down if Bennett urged him to do so, Ney said: "I would say if he asked me to step down that he'd better look in the mirror because glass houses break easily.

Shorter Bob Ney: I'm a crook, but so is he, so he'd better shut his piehole before I make a deal on his ass.

Miraculously Bennett backed off.
