"DeLay, Doolittle and Ney"
Meredith McGehee has this post on the CLCBlog. It begins: "Five years ago, when the U.S. House of Representatives was going through several rounds of consideration of the so-called 'Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act,' better known those days as 'Shays-Meehan' after its bipartisan cosponsors Chris Shays (R-CT) and Marty Meehan (D- MA), there emerged three leading opponents on the Republican side of the aisle. They were what we reformers called 'the aptly named' DeLay (Tom of Texas), Doolittle (John of California) and Ney (Bob of Ohio, now residing in federal prison in West Virginia)."
