'Pombo responds to allegations' / 'McCloskey group registers as 527'

From The Record, 'Pombo responds to allegations'..."U.S. Rep. Richard Pombo of Tracy lashed out Monday against allegations he improperly compromised a federal investigation of the owner of Northern California's Pacific Lumber Co. - a major contributor to the indicted former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas." Pombo in the article said, "There's no question this was a 'to hell with them' decision," Pombo said of his actions in the Hurwitz case. "They [regulators] were guilty of conspiracy. They were guilty of extortion. If I ever run across another case like this I wouldn't hesitate to do it again." Pombo went on to claim that "It was a classic property-rights case, and that's what I'm all about," (Source)
