Cheney hearts Shelley

From Shelley Moore Capito's web site:

"Shelley Moore Capito answers to no one except the people she represents. The President and I need people of Shelley's caliber to help us keep our nation prosperous. ..."
Vice President Dick Cheney.

Her caliber?

Capito was the largest recipient of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's ARMPAC campaign contributions. DeLay is being prosecuted on charges of felony money laundering of campaign finances and conspiracy to launder money. To date, Capito has not offered to return any of the $48,500 she received.


According to federal prosecutors, Capito's name appears in e-mails that suggest her former chief of staff was trying to help lobbyist Jack Abramoff secure a GSA lease for land for a religious school. However, Capito denies knowledge of the action and her former chief of staff claims that he did not bring the issue to her attention.
