DeLay is PAC Man

Through the first three quarters of the year, indicted former Majority Leader Tom DeLay led all House members in the amount of PAC money he took, according to this analysis (pdf) from the Federal Elections Commission. He raised $920,207 from PACs.

DeLay ranks second (to Rep. Robert Menendez, D-NJ, who wants to replace Sen. Jon Corzine if Corzine wins next months gubernatorial contest) in total raised (pdf). Since January 1st, he's apparently done more than just defend himself -- he raised $2,178,818, and average of $55,867 a week, or $7,981 a day.

Think he's thinking about you?
