Abramoff investigation faces DeLay
Tom DeLay has been out of the news lately, except for Fox News tour of his "book." But you had to know this was on the horizon, an horizon that looks decidedly closer these days:
The federal probe into corruption related to disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff could be inching closer to former U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay of Sugar Land as investigators focus on a former DeLay chief of staff who later employed the Republican leader's wife.What is amazing is that the Feds are pressing the investigation.Apparently, Rove and Gonzales didn't entirely purge the DoJ bureaucracy of anyone but "loyal Bushies." Of course, it may be the case that there was no love lost between the Bush White House and the Bugman, despite DeLay's efforts for the Republican majority. The White House regarded DeLay as "a bull in a china shop," while DeLay had little respect for Bush's boy, Karl Rove.
DeLay thinks of Karl as a former mail vendor, not some great guru.This development comes on top of the Texas state indictment of DeLay for money laundering and violations of Texas campaign law.
Keep piling it on.
