Nancy Boyda ran on "cleaning up" the ethics of Congress. Turns out its all talk.
Earlier this year, Rep. John Murtha was caught red-handed using strong arm tactics. As Republicans questioned his earmarking of money, he threatened to strip earmarks from anyone who spoke out against him, including Rep. Todd Tiahrt.
Nancy Boyda voted to kill the resolution that would have reprimanded Murtha for the tactics that were in violation of the spirit if not the letter of the House rules.
Boyda was rewarded handsomely with a $5000 PAC contribution from Murtha AND $10,000 from the PAC of Murtha's "Protector-in-Chief" Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Yes, nearly 10% of Boyda' s haul for party loyalty in the face of better ethics.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
