HEATH, Ohio – Ohio Republican Congressman Bob Ney recently used an invitation from Hopewell FCU Accounting Supervisor Tina Six to address the Heath Kiwanis Club. Six, the president of the Heath Kiwanis, invited Ney to discuss important national issues. Among the topics he covered were the Patriot Act, the war in Iraq and the U.S. border issues with Mexico. Ney is a longtime credit union supporter. However, according to Six (shown right with Rep. Ney) credit unions were not in the discussion mix. Neither was the lobbying scandal Ney is embroiled in involving Jack Abramoff. In Abramoff’s guilty plea in a fraud case, he identified Ney as a key figure in his efforts to bribe members of Congress. Among the questions Ney fielded from the audience was one concerning why he was one of the lone members of Congress who wouldn’t sign the Patriot Act until it was modified. Ney responded that he recently voted in favor of the act only after it was made less extreme. As for the war in Iraq, the congressman voiced his support of the “brave men and women” fighting there and he argued against the U.S. media’s extensive coverage of the Abu Ghraib prison shots, in comparison with terrorists’ daily atrocities. He also said he supports President Bush’s proposals to end the country’s “addiction to oil.”
