A series of quotes about
Tom DeLay on ethics:

-White House spokesman Scott McClellan, Wednesday: "Congressman DeLay is a good ally, a leader who we have worked closely with to get things done for the American people. ... The president's view is that we need to let the legal process work."
.......


-DeLay, Nov. 19, 2004, regarding the House Ethics Committee: "Admonishment is not a sanction of the House rules, although you treat it like it is. It is not a sanction, and it is a mild warning ... about impression."

-DeLay, Nov. 6, 2004: "The election proved that my constituents, No. 1, understand what this is all about, which is a strategy of personal destruction. And they rejected it. All of this stuff is frivolous, and it has been proven to be frivolous."

-DeLay, Oct. 7, 2004: "What's really significant in this decision by the Ethics Committee is that Tom DeLay was exonerated on every count - every count. And there are three levels of action that the committee can take under the law, and they took no action under any one of those penalty levels. They wrote a letter that expressed some concerns." (Regarding the allegations that he "solicited campaign contributions" from Westar Energy.)
