DeLay and the Texas Republican Majority

Finally, some good news.

Documents Suggest Bigger DeLay Role in Donations [NYT permalink]

By PHILIP SHENON

WASHINGTON, March 8 - Documents subpoenaed from an indicted fund-raiser for Tom DeLay, the House majority leader, suggest that Mr. DeLay was more actively involved than previously known in gathering corporate donations for a political committee that is the focus of a grand-jury investigation in Texas, his home state.

The documents, which were entered into evidence last week in a related civil trial in Austin, the state capital, suggest that Mr. DeLay personally forwarded at least one large corporate check to the committee, Texans for a Republican Majority, and that he was in direct contact with lobbyists for some of the nation's largest companies on the committee's behalf.

DeLay orchestrated the whole damn thing, and it's just a matter of proving it at this point. Hubris, I hope, will eventually undo him.

What about DeLay's latest blunder? Taking an 'educational' trip to Korea which was paid for by 'foreign agents' is just a wee bit of a problem for the powermonger.

If this is a just world and a just country he will go down, but I'll believe it when I see it. What about jacko in his pj's today, pretty crazy hah?

A letter to Republicans:

Hello

I have never been more sickened in my life by politicians than with the Terri Schiavo fiasco. Tom Delay is a horrible man and if you have a shred of decency in you at all you know this. I had to make the decision to "pull the plug" on my dad this past Christmas 2004. He officially died Christmas Eve. That was an incredibly difficult time for me. The very thought of a crooked politician making political hay out of my pain & suffering sickens me to the center of my soul.

Where the hell was the republican outrage last week when the feeding tubes were removed from a child in Texas? That was done under a law signed into existence by Bush. A law that says the hospital can pull the tube if the parents cannot pay.

Lest you think I am a democrat my wife & I backed Bush in 2000. We did not make that mistake in 2004. In fact the last democrat I supported was Carter.

Once again I am disgusted with what your party is doing to Terri Schiavo.
