Toledo Blade writes about Sherrod's traveling...

Today's Blade article as linked above focuses on Sherrod's January trips to Florida.

For those of you who read this blog on a regular basis, you'll remember reading about those Ohio representatives who like cars and travel.

Jim Tankersley based his information on a different source:

The watchdog group PoliticalMoneyLine ranks Mr. Brown 69th of 640 current or former congressmen in the number of privately funded trips accepted. Mr. Brown's likely November opponent, incumbent Republican Sen. Mike DeWine, ranked 445th.

My source, written by Steve Henn:

Listed Sherrod Brown at 51 and Mike DeWine at 437.

Of course, one must ask: why were these trips taken? If they were the DeLay type, then they, too, ought to be condemned.

I'm not looking at this from a "condemnation" point of view, which is why when I wrote about it the two times earlier I didn't focus just on Sherrod Brown V Mike Dewine as the Blade article does.

I think to make a fair comparison you really need to look at both Republicans and Democrats. Strickland as an example was ranked 441 (out of 638).
