Rep. Walter B. Jones

In Memoriam: Rep. Walter B. Jones, Lone Warrior For Liberty

We remember principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Walter B. Jones as one of the few men in Washington with the principles, integrity and humility necessary to look at the decision to enter the war in Iraq through the lens of subsequent events and take responsibility for the consequences of his vote.

Specter of sex scandal injected into GOP leadership race

Paul Bedard, The Washington Examiner

North Carolina Rep. Walter B. Jones cited the sex scandals that helped doom 1998 Speaker-elect Rep. Bob Livingston and former Speaker Newt Gingrich in demanding that the House leadership pressure candidates to come clean. "I believe this question is important to the integrity of the House," Jones hand wrote on his letter to House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers.
