It’s no secret that Rep. Geoff Davis (R-KY4) has strong ties to disgraced Jack Abramoff, Bob Ney and Tom DeLay. He has taken $30,000 from DeLay’s ARMPAC, $4,000 from Ney and $11,000 from Duke Cunningham. It’s also no surprise that he’s been a strong supporter of weakened House ethics rules.
So is it surprising to learn that Davis is currently involved in an investigation for possibly accepting laundered campaign contributions?
An impeccable source close to the federal investigation tells us that while Rep. Davis hasn’t officially been accused of any wrongdoing, it “doesn’t look pretty.”
We haven’t been able to get anyone to speak on the record. What we did get, however, is a big fat “there’s no way we’ll discuss an ongoing investigation.”
