Public Campaign Action Fund: Texas Judge Finds DeLay’s Political Committee Guilty of Violating Campaign Finance Law
To my fellow conservatives, being in the majority gives no man the right to run roughshod over our laws and principles. Tom DeLay may be one of many politicians whom have abuse their power and the issues his PAC have been found guilty may be no different than what others routinely do. That doesn’t mean we the people should just let it stand. It means when we’re done with DeLay we should go about the business of throwing the rest of the bums out on both sides of the aisle. Here’s the latest from the US Newswire:
The watchdog group Public Campaign Action Fund released the following statement from its National Campaigns Director, David Donnelly, regarding today’s ruling against Tom DeLay’s Texans for a Republican Majority PAC (TRMPAC):
“In a court of law DeLay’s TRMPAC was found to have concealed from the public record more than half a million dollars in corporate campaign donations, in violation of state law.
“This decision, with an impartial judge and all the evidence laid out, further underscores the need for the House Ethics Committee to appoint an outside counsel. The public will not trust Tom DeLay’s cronies in Congress to do what Judge Hart did today; specifically, he ruled on the facts, not the politics, of the case.
“Americans from across the nation need to ask themselves yet again whether they want a Congress led by a man with countless ethical violations, scandals, donors to repay, and, now, a guilty verdict against his own political committee.
“Most importantly, this finding of guilt should give all of Tom DeLay’s Republican colleagues in Congress pause in considering the political future of their chosen Majority Leader.”
Public Campaign Action Fund is a national nonprofit watchdog organization dedicated to working to advance comprehensive reform of the campaign finance system to level the playing field for all Americans, and to holding elected officials accountable for the favors they do for their political contributors.
