The Ball is in our Court
Brian Goodell NY-24
FEC ID: H4NY24032
Brian Goodell is challenging GOP incumbent Sherwood Boehlert.
Some facts about Sherwood Boehlert and how tied up he is with Tom DeLay...
• Sherwood Boehlert has taken $10,020 from Tom DeLay's ARMPAC. No surprise that Boehlert voted with Tom DeLay 88% of the time between Jan. 1 2004 and March 31 2005.
• Sherwood Boehlert voted to weaken the ethics rules in a move that many say served only to protect Tom DeLay.
• When Republicans realized it was "impossible to win the communications battle" over the gutted ethics rules, Boehlert flip-flopped and voted to put the old rules back into place.
• When Democrats offered a solution to clean up the House by strengthening ethics rules, Sherwood Boehlert voted twice to make sure it never even came to an up or down vote.
