some kansas(?) corporation has apparently come out and said that tom delay would not talk to them until they had donated $25m to trimpac.

3. This is an old and big old nasty story.
The trial is going on as we speak (write).

Here is what my paper has reported on since the beginning of it if you are interested.

4. Westar -- ripping off the Kansas consumer for a few years now.
DeLay's defense: the contribution didn't influence what he did. In effect, they accepted the bribe but didn't deliver the goods. But in fact, they DID deliver the goods: DeLay put the exact wording that Westar wanted into energy legislation.

I'm sure glad I don't live in Kansas anymore, having moved to the uncorruptable state of Texas. ;-)
