Protestors gathered at the Knox County Service Center to voice their opposition to Rep. Bob Ney's (OH-18) intent to seek reelection. Ney was inside the building holding a community forum.
Protestor Dave Lore:
“’Ney has been popular in this district but I’m not sure people know his record. We want to make sure they pay attention to what is happening in Washington before they make a decision,’ he said. ‘We think the record is clear, we are just waiting to see if the prosecutors will remove him or if the voters of the 18th district do it.’”
Ney is under investigation by the FBI because of his involvement in the Abramoff scandal. For more on the protest visit the Mount Vernon News.
