    delay and his posse

    Since DeLay was indicted for corruption and being a jackass in general, he and his posse of Republican comrades are working to escape this thing called justice. As the New York Times reports...
    A legal defense fund established by Tom DeLay, the House majority leader, has dramatically expanded its fund-raising effort in recent months, taking in more than $250,000 since the indictment last fall of two his closest political operatives in Texas, according to Mr. DeLay's latest financial disclosure statements.
    According to the report, the fund has collected over $1 million since it's creation in 2000. I'm sure he'll need the cash, but where is it coming from?
    Among the corporate donors to the defense fund is Bacardi U.S.A., the Florida-based rum maker, which has also been indicted in the Texas investigation, and Reliant Energy, another major contributor to a Texas political action committee formed by Mr. DeLay that is the focus of the criminal inquiry. Groups seeking an overhaul of Congressional ethics rules have long complained that companies might seek the favor of powerful lawmakers by contributing to their legal defense funds.
    Joel V. Staff, CEO of Reliant Energy (Houston) donated a total of $7,000 dollars to the DeLay organization according to FEC filings. The corruption and corporate sleaze makes it all the more juicy!
