Threats and Brides and Scandals, Oh My!
Now this I did not know until today. Apparently Mr. Walsh was caught up in one of the incidents that got Tom DeLay admonished by the House Ethics Committee. Back in 2003 when the Republican Leadership held open the vote on Medicare for an unprecedented 3 hours, Mr. Walsh joined in the threat making fun:
Walsh pleaded with Smith to switch his vote and told Smith he ought to think about returning a check he believed had been sent to Brad Smith.Of course the always on the ball Mr. Walsh had not actually sent the check yet. You better watch out though, Big Bad Jim is the new bully in town!
