Campaign for America's Future

They have compiled a list of state representatives and their stance on Tom DeLay. It's been interesting since about 20 Rep's have gone on record stating that they back DeLay while all the rest won't take a stand because they can't vouch for his character. Hell, even my rep follows the latter group and she's usually right up there with the other wacked out repub's.

Then, click here to find out what others are saying about DeLay.

I like this one the best I think:
"Tom's conduct is hurting the Republican Party, is hurting this Republican majority and it is hurting any Republican who is up for re-election, He is an absolute embarrassment to me and to the Republican Party."
Rep. Chris Shays (R-CT) CQ Weekly, 4/18/05

and then there is this one:
"If the ethics process is dominated by the majority party -- whichever party that might be -- it will have no credibility. It will almost certainly degenerate into a tool of partisan warfare and become a farce."
Rep. Joel Hefley (R-CO) & Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-WV) Washington Post, 4/13/05

He is being called to the stand, yet declines to comment. He won't step down from his position on the ethics committee. Does he really want to go out like that? Does he really want to be remembered as the corrupt Representative that was? Does he really think that much of himself even with all the evidence now stacked against him? He had to audacity to let his people fall, but what about him? Is this going to be another Enron/Worldcom/Tyco thing?

I betcha if DeLay had been a woman, she would have already been prosecuted. Whadaya think? Just look at Martha Stewart and her measly earnings, yet the corporate bigwigs of Enron stole entire company funds, retirement accounts: Everything. It took them two years to even get to court.
