Cong OH-18: Fundraising Booms as Scandal Looms for Bob Ney (R)

This story in the Chillicothe Gazette details the fundraising success of Rep. Ney (R-Heath) in the last quarter of 2005, after news of Jack Abramoff's indictment broke. Ney raised $277,472 in the quarter, mostly from corporate PACs, unions, trade associations, and fellow members of Congress. Less than a third came from individuals. After expenses he had $582,066 on hand at the end of 2005.

On the Democratic side, Chillicothe Mayor Joe Sulzer (D) reported $170,697 raised during the last three months of 2005 and $222,418 on hand at the end of the year. Zack Space (D-Dover) and Jeff Woollard (D-Lowell) reportedly did not file with the FEC.
