Remember When ... ?
Back in May, Illinipundit asked:
Ummmm, why should he give the money back?I hope it's not impolite to mention that, as we all know, DeLay was indicted this week for his role in laundering corporate campaign contributions. And more Republicans are starting to give back the money from the corrupt DeLay machine.
DeLay hasn't even been indicted (except by the lying, partisan press).
As Mr. Johnson remains silent, and keeps DeLay's money, even conservatives may wonder if he is really serving his constituents. Consider the thoughts of the Lansing State Journal:
On DeLay: Mid-Michigan Republicans can find a better person to lead usPlease, Mr. Johnson. Give Tom DeLay's money back.
[Central Michigan's four Republican Congressmen] all claim the same mantle before area voters ... of being sober, prudent, Midwestern conservatives; people of trust and honor.
Yet, where is the prudence, where is the conservatism, in their previous support of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas?
The people of Houston sent DeLay to Congress. That's their call.
But Rogers, Camp, Ehlers, Schwarz and their Republican colleagues made DeLay majority leader. Why are area voters being tied to this man? ...
[H]ow many mid-Michigan voters believe, as DeLay claims, that the federal budget has no fat in it? How many voters believe, as DeLay claims, that Congress is better able to determine a woman's mental state than her own doctors? And how many mid-Michigan voters really think Tom DeLay is the best representative of their views in Washington?
