    He was probably molested, too!

    WASHINGTON - Rep. Bob Ney pleaded guilty Friday to bribery charges stemming from the Jack Abramoff influence-peddling investigation.

    The Ohio Republican was the first member of Congress convicted in the scandal that has tainted the White House as well as Capitol Hill. He faces up to 10 years in prison.

    Mark Touhey, Ney's lawyer, told the judge the congressman would resign from office before sentencing on Jan. 19. Ney's term in Congress expires before then, though, at noon on Jan 3.

    Touhey also asked for Ney to be incarcerated in a facility that has an alcohol treatment program.
