Robin Hayes' Twisted Friends and Their Tainted Money

Several months ago I was knee-deep in the muck investigating Robin Hayes' felons and friends - or felonious friends - and his close financial links to several admitted liars, adulterers and (now) convicted felons. Little did I know that the information compiled would link Robin Hayes to an alleged pedophile. I am flat-out, completely, horizontally disgusted.

While the story continues to unfold on a national level, we have our own little story here in North Carolina's 8th Congressional District. Robin Hayes has strong ties to Mark Foley, Dennis Hastert, John Boehner and Tom Reynolds. All of these men apparently either approved of Foley's baiting of young teenage boys for homosexual acts, or they actively chose to ignore it. Now, they are shifting the blame to either the teenage boy(s) or the press or anyone but themselves and Mark Foley.

It is outrageous that Robin Hayes and his fellow Republicans would find it more important to cling to their majority in congress than to protect teens from illegal sexual activity with a grown man. The predatory actions of Mark Foley have only been denounced by one North Carolina Republican, Walter Jones. Apparently, Robin Hayes, Sue Myrick, Charles Taylor and Patrick McHenry all think Mark Foley's penchant for pedophilia is A-OK as long as they get to keep their jobs and his campaign contributions.

The North Carolina Democratic party was immediate in their response to the pedophilia apologists. Jerry Meek and Schorr Johnson quickly had a press release on the NCDP web site and released to the media.

The Wall Street Journal (sorry no link) carried this in today's paper, page A-4.
With Democrats now the ones on the offensive, yesterday they called on Republicans to return funds from Mr. Foley, who had been a prodigious party fund-raiser. In North Carolina, the Democratic Party released a statement asking of the incumbent Republican, "Who does Robin Hayes stand up for? Mark Foley and the Republican House leadership or underage children?"
It was also picked up in theday.com out of Connecticut where we get this:
In Indiana, Baron Hill, a Democratic candidate for a House seat, asked the incumbent, Rep. Mike Sodrel, a first-term Republican, to reject any financial contributions from the national party. In North Carolina, where Rep. Robin Hayes, a Republican, is engaged in a tough campaign fight, the state Democratic Party issued a statement asking, "Who does Robin Hayes stand up for — Mark Foley and the Republican House leadership or underage children?"
This same NCDP quote can now be found in The New York Times and a very interesting discussion can be found at Craig Crawford's place.

Just how connected is Robin Hayes to Mark Foley, Dennis Hastert, Tom Reynolds and John Boehner? Financially, he's very connected to them. Let's examine those connections:
Florida Republican Leadership PAC - Mark Foley (R-Fla)
2002 - $1,500
Friends of Mark Foley for Congress
2002 - $1,000

Freedom Project - John A. Boehner, (R-Ohio)
2002 - $10,234
2004 - $9,765
2006 - $5,000

Keep Our Majority PAC - Dennis Hastert, (R-Ill)
2002 - $10,000
2004 - $10,000
2006 - $10,000
Hastert for Congress Cmte
2002 - $2,000
2004 - $2,000

Together for Our Majority - Thomas M. Reynolds, (R-NY)
2002 - $10,000
2004 - $10,000
2006 - $5,000
So, Robin Hayes has received a total of $2,500.00 from the alleged pedophile, Foley over the past 3 election cycles and $83, 999.00 from the leadership team that worked to cover up Foley's disgraceful and possibly illegal sexually flirtatious conversations with teen boys.

Are you disgusted yet?

If you add that to the total contributions taken from other Republicans in congress who have publicly admitted committing adultery, lying or who are now under indictment, in prison or have pleaded guilty and will be going to prison, you will be disgusted.

If you still are able to hold down your disgust, let's look a little more closely:

American Prosperity PAC - Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R-California)
2002 - $5,000
Currently serving prison term

Americans for a Republican Majority - Tom DeLay (R-Texas)
2002 - $10,000

Superior California Fed Leadership Fund - John T. Doolittle (R-Ca)
2006 - $5,000
Doolittle for Congress (or Friends for John T. Doolittle)
2004 - $1,000
Under investigation in the Jack Abramoff corruption case(s)

That's another $93, 408 dollars in money tainted by the activities of the donors - all Republicans. This is the party of family values. This is the party that chooses to discriminate against same sex couples while they are sleeping around on their own wives. This is the party that would choose to hide illegal activity to save one seat in Congress rather than protect children. This is the party that works so hard to keep Robin Hayes in office.

This is what I said about Robin Hayes' donor list last March:
There were enough felons, indictees, adulterers, liars and cheaters to fill a good-sized corner of hell.
I hope hell has room for expansion, because the list of corrupt Republicans who finance Robin Hayes just got longer.

I'm surprised that another admitted adulterer hasn't given Hayes any money ... you know, the one in the District west of his.

Hayes says he's giving the money back now.

Andrew Reyes???

Nah....Hayes has a lot of dirty money in his coffers from a lot of crooked Republicans, but Reyes didn't give him any money.

Last I checked Reyes wasn't elected to office, was he? Shall I start naming Republican criminals who aren't elected to office? We could be here all night.

Hey...but that was a pretty original subject change. The standard "Clinton" was getting old.

Gee Sam, don't you think Hayes has enough adulterers clamoring to be his friend? This from the party of family values....you know, the people who want to protect the sanctity of marriage while at the same time boffing anything in a skirt and/or boxers.

Sam...honestly...I didn't think to check and see if Sue Myrick had given him any money.

I checked up on Myrick, at least no money to Robin for the past two cycles ... cause, you know, if Myrick gave other Republicans money she wouldn't have enough to take her advertising commission from her completely unnecessary billboard and ad buys.

Of course, I'm happy that Myrick would rather embezzle than help out her team.

Oh, and you forgot the first rule of Washington morality: what happens in Congress stays in Congress, but if a Democratic president does anything it proves we're all evil hell-bound purveors of Satanic whatever.

Sam, you do have a way with words....it proves we're all evil hell-bound purveors of Satanic whatever.........

Oh, I know two Republicans who hold themselves to the same high standards that they hold others. Two. I know a lot of Republicans. They have no ability to reflect on and judge their own actions. They also seem to lack the ability to take responsibility for their own actions. It's always someone else's fault. Just like a two-yr-old.

Sigh
