03/07/2005: Delayed Reactions
Last night CBS News did a story about Travis County (Texas) District Attorney Ronnie Earle and his office's investigation into a corporate fundraising scandal that involves U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas).
Public Campaign Action Fund's Daily DeLay blog has been following this and the many scandals swirling around Tom DeLay. The latest news, commentary and analysis (and a transcript of the CBS story) can be found at the Daily DeLay.
"Tom DeLay is a walking scandal," David Donnelly, political director of Public Campaign Action Fund said. "In 2002, DeLay devised a scheme that involved the eventual use of illegal corporate contributions to tighten his grip on power in Washington and to advance the big money agenda of his financial backers. Democracy itself is the casualty."
In addition, David Donnelly, the lead author of the Daily DeLay and an expert on DeLay scandals, is available for phone interviews regarding the 60 Minutes piece on Earle and DeLay, as well as any of the other issues that have surfaced regarding DeLay's ethical transgressions and pay-to-play politics.
