Ney hears his fate

From NBC's Huma Zaidi
Former Ohio Congressman Bob Ney has been sentenced to 30 months in jail -- more than what federal prosecutors recommended to the judge -- for his role in the Jack Abramoff bribery scandal.  Last year, Ney pleaded guilty to accepting costly gifts and trips in exchange for using his position to do favors for Abramoff and his clients. Abramoff, meanwhile, is serving a six year sentence for his involvement in another scandal.
