The Money Keeps Coming

Indicted former Majority Leader Tom DeLay saw a huge leap in money raised for his Legal Defense Fund this quarter, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

"Between July 1 and September 30, at least 70 individuals and 35 corporations, political action committees and campaign committees have contributed $318,020 to DeLay's legal defense fund to help him pay for lawyers to fight charges filed against him by Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle," the release reads. "This represents a huge leap over the first two quarters of 2005. Between January and March, nine individuals and 11 corporations, PACs and campaign committees contributed $47,750 to the fund. Between April and June, eight individuals and three corporations, PACs and campaign committees contributed $42,900."

Ten members of Congress have contributed at least $5,000 from their PACs or campaign comittees. They are Reps. Joe Barton (R-TX), Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.), Jerry Lewis (R-Calif.), Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), Michael Oxley (R-Ohio), Buck McKeon (R-Calif.), Pete Sessions (R-Texas.), Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), Tom Reynolds(R-N.Y.) and Wally Herger (R-Calif.).

So far this year, DeLay has spent more than $300,000 in legal fees.

  • Delay is an ignorant ass.

    Make sure Ronnie Earle has them replace the judge with an impartial judge, who has no connections to TRMPAC if Perkins does not oversee this case.


    No judge should be allowed to hold the case; except an impartial one.

  • I have a question...

    De Lay is in TExas and this guy I knew from SUNY Albany, totally showed up and brought some pro-life group with these big posters of aborted fetuses. He came from Texas and was builidng this huge network of conservative studen newspapers. I think he said DeLay was on his advisory baord.. I don't know. His last name is Barea... THe student newspaper he started was College Standard Magazine.. it's now in like 3 states.

    Is DeLay trying to do to the country what he did to Texas?

  • I don't think he'll be able to pull the judge trick again, no matter who he gets.

  • As of yesterday Tom deLay has been given a green light to choose his own judge! The removal of Perkins is a truly bad sign. No Democrat was ever able to get a judge removed because he was a Republican. The shi----- dog Tom deLay is going to get back into the house and destroy what is left.

  • Judges removed, supreme court justice removed.

    He has no green-light. No one can pick the judge, except the jury courts. [b]Otherwise its a conflict of interest again...[/b]
