Tom DeLay: Starting to Slip?
Things are looking up for America's patriots and democracy-lovers. We The People are starting to close in on the Hammeroid. (And thank you Newsblog5000 for that new DeLay nickname.)
Thanks to 20,000 e-mails, the five corporations that have been donating to Tom DeLay’s defense fund are feeling the heat. So far Verizon, Nissan North America and American Airlines have agreed to stop contributing to the Hammeroid’s defense fund.
That leaves RJ Reynolds and Bacardi USA. Click here to send an e-mail to these two holdouts. If they think DeLay’s corrupt power and influence are more important than We The People: there are plenty of cigarette brands not affiliated with RJ Reynolds; lots of good rum out there besides Bacardi.
And still another blow to the Hammeroid: two members of the House Ethics Committee — who had been hand-picked by House Speaker Dennis Hastert — have excluded themselves for possible conflict of interest. Reason: they themselves have donated to DeLay's legal defense fund. Honesty and decency are starting to bloom.
But wait, don’t get complacent yet. Keep their feet to the fire. If you think the Hammeroid needs to be investigated, click here. This petition will demand that House Speaker Dennis Hastert appoint a Special Counsel to investigate DeLay.
We need to find out everything we can about how such a sleazebag achieved this much power, and how to avoid repeating these fascist adventures in the future. We need to do whatever it takes to prevent future Taliban wannabes from trying to take over our country.
