Delahunt and Others Much Too Cozy With Chavez

From Investors Business Daily: Rep. Bill Delahunt, D-Mass. (seen on the right), Sen. Lincoln Chafee, R-R.I., and Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., went on junkets to Venezuela to admire Chavez's "revolution" in his dog and pony shows. Worse, they've willingly gotten themselves into Chavez's political debt by accepting subsidized heating oil for their supposedly underserved residents. But none have been as involved with Chavez as Rep Delahunt D-Mass, who brokered Chavez's cheap-oil program. He called Chavez's attack "silly," but then told the Boston Globe it was all Bush's fault. Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., and Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., all helped with deals for 40 million gallons of cheap oil via Venezuelan-owned Citgo...These same friends-of-Chavez congressmen vote against every single offshore drilling bill and proposed natural gas pipeline when those bills come up in Congress. Chavez desperately wants high oil prices, and to see pro-Chavez congressmen voting against bills that would cut energy prices not just for the poor but for everyone is, frankly, suspicious.
