With Friends Like These Part II

Philip Shenon reports in today's New York Times that investigations into alleged wrong-doing by scandalized lobbyist Jack Abramoff have turned up some interesting e-mails involving indicted former Majority Leader DeLay.

In 2002, it appears that DeLay put pressure on Abramoff to raise money for him through a private charity that the lobbyist controlled. The request led Abramoff to try to raise the money from Indian tribes that he represented.

"The e-mail messages do not specify why Mr. DeLay wanted the money, how it was to be used or why he would want money raised through the auspices of a private charity," Shenon writes.

There's too much good stuff in this article for me to excerpt here. You should go read the whole thing.


  • Delay behaves as a man so drunk that he is sure no one will notice - is there no limit to his corruption?

  • Tom DeLay blames the out-of-control spending by the House on the Democratic minority. Everyone knows those guys have no power.

    Here is to wishing that Tom would come up with better excuses:

  • Slime bucket is what we got here....

    More musical chairs for Delay!!! We can keep this up all day long, son, and it proves you're guilty.

    Jack Abramoff's personal dildo toy. Along with Bob Ney and now Matt Blunt too, Blunt deserves to be taken down someone air those ads in his district all the time....and sue them if they don't want the ads run.
