"Political Groups Paid Two Relatives of House Leader" This headline in today's Times website is a weak whitewash, as explained in the first phrase of the first sentence of the article:
"The wife and daughter of Tom DeLay, the House majority leader, have been paid more than $500,000 since 2001 by Mr. DeLay's political action and campaign committees..."If one of "the relatives" in question is sharing his home, isn't Tom DeLay in effect paying himself out of these campaign funds (unless he's in the process of pulling the plug on his marriage like previous hypocritical Republican Congressional leaders)??
There was also an interestingly repulsive clip of him on the ABC News last night taking part in the Republican Congressional Committee's Physician of the Year scam. For 1,250 dollars you get a phony certificate for your office wall and a picture with your Republican Representative (who is already planning to pass a large portion of your payment on to one of his campaign worker / family members).
