March 2008: '"I sought for several years to meet with the outside auditors," Walden said. "There was always some seemingly legitimate reason why that didn't happen." The scheme began to unravel this year, when Rep. K. Michael Conaway (Tex.), the new head of the audit committee, insisted on meeting the auditors.'http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/03/13/AR2008031302841.html
July 2007: 'the US government has refused to negotiate with the FARC, saying the approach would send a dangerous message to other would-be kidnappers. The Bush administration's tack is summed up by US Rep. Michael Conaway (R) of Texas, who traveled to Colombia in May and was briefed on the matter. "Once you start down that path, then every State Department employee in the world is at risk of being taken," he says. "You don't negotiate with terrorists; you don't negotiate with those guys."'http://www.csmonitor.com/2007/0713/p03s03-usmi.html
