Via Kilo and this Tricities.com article, I see that our esteemed Congressman Rick Boucher (D) here in Southwest Virginia has pretty much been caught with his hand in the cookie jar. I’m really surprised the media here published such a critical story about Boucher. Usually everything is very, very positive to the Congressman. I see the byline for the article is a reporter from the Media General syndicate in DC.
Boucher reportedly received $25,000 from some telecom companies that he voted to protect under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Boucher along with some 90 other Democrat House members initially had opposed protection but changed course after receiving the money.
Hmm…I doubt we’ll see anymore of these reports in the local media.
