"Mr. President, Give back all of my money,""What ethics?""$50 million for how many favors?'' and "Noe raised over $100,000 and you're only returning $4,000? Sounds like fuzzy math to me."
And the response of the Bush faithful:Toni Brandon, 33, said she hadn't read or heard any news about Mr. Noe or the Bureau of Workers' Compensation scandal. She and her eight-year-old son waited on a small hill near I-70 to try to catch a glimpse of the President as he headed toward the event. "We love the President. He's a Christian and these people are evil,'' said Ms. Brandon, referring to the protesters.
And the latest, Republicans have proposed a committee dominated by members of their party investigate the scandal. The Democrats in Ohio are refusing to participate in the committee unless it includes an equal number of Democrats and Republicans. National Democrats from Ohio are also speaking out.
