PCAF Statement on DeLay Indictment


Calls on DeLay to resign from Congress; Leaving leadership does not go far enough

Washington, DC – Public Campaign Action Fund, a nonpartisan watchdog group, called on Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to resign from Congress, not simply step down from his leadership post, following news of his indictment on a conspiracy charge by a grand jury in Texas. The reform group issued the following statement by its national campaigns director, David Donnelly:

“Some Americans might be tempted to cheer today, but let’s strip this down to its essence: We are witnessing an historic event. One of the most powerful politicians in America was indicted today because he conspired to subvert the democratic process – a conspiracy that used illegal corporate money to buy elections, and ultimately led to the disenfranchisement of tens of thousands of voters in Texas.

“We know that Tom DeLay must now resign from his leadership post. And that’s the result of intense public pressure on the Republican Congress to overturn a rule that was specially crafted last fall to protect DeLay in exactly this situation. But that’s not enough. He is a national embarrassment and a walking scandal.

“The former Majority Leader no longer deserves the privilege of serving in the House of Representatives. His colleagues should join our demand that he resign.”

Public Campaign Action Fund is a national, nonpartisan watchdog organization that has led the charge for greater accountability among House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and other corrupt members of Congress, and works to advance comprehensive campaign finance reform.

If you haven't already signed our petition demanding that DeLay resign, please do so here now. If you have, please consider making a contribution of $25, $50, or $100 to our rapid response fund to make sure this story is heard far and wide.

    A lot of buzzwords get tossed about in the tech world. The one I am hearing frequently these days is " Web 2.0" -- which has a number of definitions but basically means a new way to create software.

  • Thank the gods Tom Delay is OUT!!!!!!!

    Hey Tom Delay, what's going on with those friends of yours Jack Abramoff and Adam Kidan?

    Why are you friends with mob-hitmen and convicted criminals?

  • Wait. Public Campaign Action Fund, a nonpartisan watchdog group???? This site is part of PCAF right? I mean, I'm not saying you don't have a point of view, that's your right, but why claim to be nonpartisan when you're not?
    I still don't know about Delay. I guess we'll find out if and when there's a trial.

  • Hey wait a minute, this site isn't a part of PCAF....Citizens for Watchdog and Responsibility, and several other groups have been calling for his resignation.

    He committed crimes by re-districting entire communities to get elected, and also took paid endorsements from convicted eco-hitman Jack Abramoff.

    He's done more than enough to break the law and be convicted. I say take out Robert Ney, Nancy Pelosi and the other three with the trash!

  • Not a part of the PCAF? look at the top of this page under "about."

    And I don't care about being partisan, it's fine, but why call yourself nonpartisan when you're not? It makes the reader wonder what other things you're willing to be dishonest about.

  • Good point!!! Maybe its totally partisan, or maybe the writer is talking about Citizens of Ethics and Responsibility which also hates me and is after me.

    I'm telling you its a vast conspiracy!!!! THEY ARE LANDING, PLEASE COME GET ME OUT OF THIS!!!!

    Tom Delay
