NJ: Prosecutors Looking at Ex-GOP Rep
By Paul Kiel - April 27, 2007, 1:43 PM
The Jack Abramoff investigation continues to burst with renewed vigor. Now, it's ex-Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) -- who was defeated back in November due in large part to his ties to Abramoff -- who might be in trouble.
In the current issue of the National Journal (not available online), Peter Stone reports that "two sources say that the Justice Department is making new inquiries into Hayworth’s past links to Abramoff."
Hayworth was a boil on my butt the whole time he was in the House.
Smarmy, holier-than-everyone and a Bubba I recognized. I lived in Central Florida for a few years, and I knew J.D. and/or his cousins REAL well.
They chewed, spat, heckled, harassed, were rude to women, differential to parents & teachers (when they were looking) and basically thought that they would always rise to the top, no matter what kind of excrement they laid out behind them.
I'm willing to bet a nice lasagne meal that ole J.D. goes down hard.
