Allies and friends of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (Tex.) have concluded that public attention to his ethics is unlikely to abate for months to come, and they plan to try to preserve his power by launching an aggressive media strategy and calling in favors from prominent conservative leaders, according to Republicans participating in the strategy sessions.
The Republicans said the strategy combines leaks from DeLay allies about questionable Democratic trips and financial matters; denunciations of unfavorable news stories as biased, orchestrated rehashes; and swift, organized responses to journalists' inquiries.
Questionable trips and financial matters? They have got to be kidding! For the ongoing scoop, check out John, who has been covering this all along, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. These are only within the last week, covering the most recent scandals.
This man, DeLay, has a long history of violating ethics, including changing House ethics rules so that he won't get punished. This is the House majority leader, one of the most UNethical men in congress, if not THE most UNethical man in congress.
You voted for him, you own him. Those of us that have ethics in their lives don't want him.
