Today is Primary Day! If you were under investigation due to your dealings with lobbyist and are running for re-election, how do you spend primary night?
If your name is Tom DeLay, you spend it at a fundraiser thrown by lobbyists. Here are a few lines from a CNN article regarding this issue:
"Entry to the fundraiser costs $1,000, $2,500 and $5,000 for political action committees and $500, $1,000 and $2,100 for individuals, according to an event invitation."
All of which will go to the DeLay's re-election campaign.
Here are some words from one of the Republicans running against him in today's primary:
"I think it's amazingly ironic and callous he would be spending election night with a group of lobbyists," Campbell said. "I don't think he understands how unhappy constituents are with what appears to be a trade of principle for power."
(doesn't that book behind his ear make him look like an elf?)
I sure hope he looses! DeLay and Bush sure are making Texans look foolish.
