Don't hesitate to fear DeLay - "DeLay wing... self-righteous folks who distrust modernity"

Atlanta Journal Constitution ^ | April 24, 2005 | Cynthia Tucker
It would be comforting but naive to dismiss House Majority Leader Tom DeLay as a harmless, charmless churl who appeals only to a tiny, ineffectual group inhabiting the far religious right. In fact, the DeLay wing of the Republican Party is on the rise, and its antediluvian agenda represents a serious threat to American democracy. That's no exaggeration. If the DeLay wing gets its way, the entire nation will live according to the very rigid rules of a handful of self-righteous folks who distrust modernity. They would dictate the way we worship, live, work, have sex and even...

They're placards for a Metro system anti-litter campaign, but the same cautionary sentiment holds true with politicians. Unfortunately for House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Sugar Land, a paper trail has begun to emerge that contradicts his account of who paid for foreign travel that included some rounds at St. Andrews in Scotland, golf's holy of holies. DeLay has maintained that the trips were arranged and paid for by a nonprofit organization. The Washington Post has now revealed documents that indicate at least part of the travel costs for DeLay and aides were picked up by two lobbyists, including Jack Abramoff,...

Dean rips DeLay at convention May 15, 2005 Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Party, said yesterday that the US House majority leader, Tom DeLay, ''ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence," referring to allegations of unethical conduct against the Republican leader. Dean's remark, in a speech to Massachusetts Democrats at their party convention, drew an immediate rebuke from US Representative Barney Frank, the Newton Democrat and one of DeLay's harshest critics. ''That's just wrong," Frank said in an interview on the convention floor. ''I think Howard Dean was out of line talking...

Self-inflicted wound (Ronnie Earle investigates Tom DeLay and fund raises using DeLay)

Houston Chronicle ^ | May 20, 2005 | Editorial
District attorney's poor judgment in speaking at a Democratic fund-raiser provides an unintended boost for DeLay's defenders. Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle has spent the past year investigating corporate funds collected by political action committees connected to U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. So far, a grand jury has indicted three of the Sugar Land representative's associates for violating Texas election laws. Republicans have accused the veteran prosecutor, a Democrat, of conducting a partisan witch hunt. Earle's attendance and remarks attacking DeLay at a Democratic fund-raiser last week in Dallas damaged the credibility of his investigation with a stunning...

Houston Chronicle ^ | Aug. 5, 2005 | EDWARD HEGSTROM
SUGAR LAND - House Majority Leader Tom DeLay criticized the city of Houston's "sanctuary" policy toward illegal immigrants in a speech Thursday night. Speaking to a packed house of Fort Bend County Republican faithful, DeLay said he supported the concept behind legislation introduced by U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., that would withhold federal funding from cities such as Houston that refuse to enforce immigration law. "It greatly concerns me that the police chief in Houston, Texas, has created a sanctuary in Houston by announcing that he is not going to enforce our laws," the Sugar Land Republican said, in response...

The New York Times ^ | 2/9/2005 | staff
WASHINGTON, Feb. 8 - Representative Tom DeLay of Texas, the House majority leader, said Tuesday that conservatives might be able to compromise with President Bush on his proposal allowing illegal immigrants to work in the United States legally. Such a compromise could entail, for example, requiring illegal immigrants to return to their native countries to apply for the program, Mr. DeLay said. Advertisement Mr. DeLay said he talked recently with the president, who has advocated a guest worker program that would be open to workers who are currently in the country illegally as well as to newcomers.

GOP shouldn't delay in replacing DeLay (Barf alert EDITORIAL)

EDITORIAL BOARD Tuesday, March 15, 2005 The steady stream of ethical charges flowing around U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay for more than a year are now threatening to inundate him. DeLay has been admonished three times in the past 12 months by the House Ethics Committee. He is central to a Travis County grand jury investigation of possible campaign law violations and faces new questions about his travel and lobby connections. Concerns arose last week about a trip DeLay, and others, accepted from the Korea-U.S. Exchange Council. The council is a registered foreign agent, which would make the trip...

Gordon Smith Sen. Don Nickles Rep. Howard Coble Rep. Harold Rogers Rep. Clay Shaw Rep. Bill Thomas Rep. Neil Abercrombie Rep. Norm Dicks Rep. Nancy Pelosi Sen.

As usual, it isn't the ethics that are the real udnerlying concern, but...

Spotlight on DeLay shifts from Austin to D.C. Jurisdiction issues make it hard for Austin prosecutors to pursue DeLay By Laylan Copelin AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF Saturday, April 02, 2005 In last month's edition, Esquire magazine asked, "Who the hell is Ronnie Earle?" Texas Monthly named the Travis County district attorney the second most powerful Texan. And CBS' "60 Minutes" pitted Earle, a Democrat, against another powerful Texan, U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Sugar Land, in a piece entitled, "The DA and Tom DeLay." That comes with the territory when a prosecutor has been investigating DeLay's Texans for a Republican Majority...

Tampa Triune ^ | Feb 23 05 | Daniel Ruth
It's merely a guess - and an admittedly presumptuous one, too - but here's some unsolicited advice for attorney George Felos - as long as Jeb Bush reigns over Florida, your client Michael Schiavo will never be permitted to allow his brain-damaged wife Terri to die. Even if courts continue to rule in Michael Schiavo's favor? Nope, not even then. Not even if indeed it was Terri's wish never to be simply kept alive as the world's leading Larry King prop?Nope, not even then. Not even if the medical evidence supports the argument that Terri Schiavo's consciousness slipped away 15...

Last month it was reported that he had a $70,000 visit to London and Scotland paid for by a native American tribe and gambling interests, and a $106,921 trip to South Korea in 2001 financed by Korean business. The fact of the matter is that Tom DeLay's redistricting efforts helped the Republicans gain five seats in the house of representatives last November and also helped the Texas legislature become Republican for the first time in 100 years. The party is standing behind him for the most obvious reason, and that is that many are responsible for the high level committee...

Generation Why? ^ | April 7, 2005 | Jason Smith
Yep, you heard me right. Tom DeLay must go. Facing mounting questions on ethics and the like, it's time for him to go. There's another article in the MSM about DeLay's campaign and PAC paying his family members for their work on his campaigns. Apparently the organizations, funded by supporters, not tax dollars, were paying DeLay's family members for working on his campaigns. In other words, Tom DeLay was using money donated by supporters to help his campaign. In other news, there was a blistering article by the AP about DeLay's antics involving both his national and state PACs. According...

For the old-fashioned, the definition of a "news story" is a story that is new hence the name. But the newspeople at the newspapers The Washington Post and The New York Times have an updated definition anything that hurts Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay on any given day. The Times just ran a front-page article reporting that DeLay's wife and daughter receive payments from his political operations. This story might have been news if it hadn't been known for years and been the subject of a detailed report in the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call on May 5, 2003...

Town Hall ^ | April 9, 2005 | Robert Novak
WASHINGTON --, the left-wing activist group leading the fight against Rep. Tom DeLay, has claimed there is a Republican clamor to replace him as House majority leader that does not actually exist. "Now," said an e-mail dispatched by MoveOn, "some Republicans in Congress are speaking out against DeLay." In fact, however, no Republican in Congress has criticized DeLay publicly, not even on an off-the-record basis. The e-mail also declares unequivocally that "DeLay illegally used corporate funds in support of his plan to redistrict Texas." Actually, DeLay has not been convicted, tried or even formally accused of breaking the law.

DeLay - No. 1 NOTE: This is the second in a series of reports about Congressman Tom DeLay and why he must be removed from leadership and from the House of Representatives. I am wondering when the Republican Party is going to finally have its fill with Tom DeLay. That this man is even walking free is beyond belief. What short memories people have. They forget that DeLay killed a woman. Yes, he did. It was many years ago. DeLay and some other Republican men were partying with some young single women. Their wives were at home baking cookies...

Hot bottom plus large endowment equals a good time." That is all DeLay needed to hear. He was hot for the guy. DeLay...

It's a forgone conclusion now that House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's days in the House are near over, and not because of the Democrats. DeLay's own party - our party - will throw the guy overboard just to move past this episode. Is this the right move? Perhaps, but likely not. DeLay was there for the Republican Party at a time that there was a serious chance for our party to lose control of the House. The post-Newt years were ones filled with turmoil within the Republican House membership, and it was DeLay that held his ground in '96, '98...
