I posted earlier what Dan Balz of The Washington Post thought of former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's recent string of interviews. Now, not only do they appear to have been ill-advised, but also untrue.

The Houston Chronicle reports that DeLay in his press interviews and his legal team seem to be contradicting each other. DeLay said Wednesday night on MSNBC that he was never asked to testify before the grand jury. The jury former says that is not true and the reason that the jury waited until the final day to indict was out of a hope that DeLay would come in to testify.

I have to run to a meeting, but check out what DeLay's own attorney has to say about the situation...

  • Even money bet that Delay's lawyers resign if Delay continues to give these interviews. We should all pray he continues. I interned in a DA's office back in the 80's. I marveled that defendents despite being warned anything they say can AND will be used against them keep on talking, they are so sure that they can talk themselves out of trouble...

    Its possible that the bubble experience of not facing real journalists asking tough questions has lulled him to sleep.

    Off topic, but you should probably turn on the spam blocker for your comments.

    I took that from Lost World Jurassic Park, but I mean, you must understand how it applies to me!

    The country has done so many good things under my re-districting, my uhhh re-structuring of the states don't you see?
