DeLay DeThroned

Mission Accomplished!
Ohio Going DemocraticWhat was it a few years ago that "red" represented to the world.   All manner of things that did not represent the way Americans wanted to be viewed.   Corruption and power hungry militarism.   Horrible human rights violations.   Cronyism at every level of government.   I think you know where I am going with this.   The Bush Administration, plagued with ever expanding scandals is hemmoraging and it is not representative of the "True Blue American Way".   On an earlier webpage I compiled a list of sites that opposed the corruption that Tom DeLay represents in todays Republican Party.   I thought it would be appropriate to revisit the major players in the detailing of these facts.     - fc

Democratic National CommitteeDeLay Indictment Underscores Rampant Culture of Corruption

Common Cause • 9.28.05

The events of the past month have shaken our faith in government, and its ability to respond in fundamental ways. Today's indictment of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) and the ethical cloud hanging over Sen. Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) and others reinforce in the strongest possible way the need for fundamental reform and a new respect for ethics in government.

DeLay Indicted • 9.28.05

House Majority Leader DeLay today was indicted by a Texas grand jury along with two political associates on charges of conspiring to make a political contribution in violation of Texas state law to help elect a Republican majority in the Texas House of Representatives. An attorney for DeLay said John Colyandro, the former executive director of a state PAC, and Jim Ellis, who heads DeLay's national political committee, also were indicted. In a statement issued this afternoon, DeLay said he would "temporarily step aside from my position as majority leader.

Undemocratic Leadership: A review of DeLay's authoritarian leadership, under which open debate has been dramatically reduced, alternative proposals are routinely denied a vote and the ability to offer amendments has been sharply curtailed.

Media Matters Media Matters for America has closely monitored news coverage of ethics allegations surrounding House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX). Much of the news media have uncritically repeated DeLay's insistence that the charges against him are a conspiracy by Democrats, George Soros, and the "liberal media," while failing to note that many Republicans and conservative media outlets have also criticized DeLay. The media have also proved to be quite willing to repeat baseless charges by DeLay and his defenders that Ronnie Earle, the Travis County, Texas, district attorney who has indicted three former DeLay aides, is engaged in a partisan witch hunt without also noting that Earle has prosecuted many more Democrats than Republicans during his career.

Think ProgressDeLay Helps Earle Establish Motive

Either Tom DeLay isn't taking Dick DeGuerin's advice, or he needs to start scouring the yellow pages for a new lawyer.

Here's what DeLay said last night in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity:
  • Ronnie Earle has established no intent, no motive to commit a crime.
But only minutes earlier, DeLay did a pretty good job establishing motive:
  • So we had an opportunity in 2002. I wanted to redistrict the congressional seats, so I wanted to make sure and help gain a majority in the Texas House. So I came up with this idea to form a political action committee to raise money to get into state representative races so that we could win seats.
  • We were successful. And after that, we were successful in a congressional redistricting to the tune of gaining five Republican seats and more fairly represent the values of the people of Texas.
I'm sure Earle appreciates the help.

Rep. Jeb Bradley (R-NH) gives back $15K ARMPAC money

Is this the beginning of a stampede? Should members be pressed to give DeLay's money? That's 225 of them. Wow.

UPDATE: with the same question.

UPDATE 2: You can also put pressure on members of Congress to call on DeLay to resign by signing this petition. 36,277 have signed. Download your own button for your site from the right side, and link it to
