Alleged Republican Vote Rigging Conspirator Congressman Tom Feeney Smacked Down by Space Agency --- Where His Wife Works!

NASA's own Transit Workers Union has endorsed vote-rigging whistleblower Clint Curtis for Congress. Curtis hopes to unseat corrupt Republican congressman Tom Feeney in Florida's 24th U.S. congressional district this fall... and this particular endorsement has gotta smart.

The irony here (among many): Feeney's wife works for NASA, or at least she used to, and we believe she still does. As well, Yang Enterprises Inc. (YEI) --- the company for whom both Curtis and Feeney worked back when Curtis claims Feeney asked him to create vote-rigging software in 2000 --- has huge contracts with NASA to this day.

We're certain that even though Feeney was the Speaker of the Florida House at the same time he was YEI's general counsel and registered lobbyist, there was no conflict of interest there and Feeney had nothing to do with helping to secure those lucrative NASA gigs for YEI.

We're also certain that the junket Feeney took to Scotland to play golf with Jack Abramoff (on the lobbyist's dime) was purely for congressional business as well.

Here's the text of the ringing endorsement from the TWU Local 525...

Dear Clint,

The 800 members of Local 525 officially endorse your candidacy for Congress. Due to your continual efforts to bring honesty and integrity to Washington, we believe you are the right choice and the only choice for the working men and women of Florida.

During the course of this elections cycle, we intend to offer you whatever resources we have available in order to make your bid for congress a successful one and I personally will make myself available to you and your staff if I am needed.

We look forward to working with you,


Kevin P. Smith
Vice President, TWU Local 525
