Washington Post: Gambling Interests Funded DeLay Trip

Gambling Interests Funded DeLay Trip

Excerpt - An Indian tribe and a gambling services company made donations to a Washington public policy group that covered most of the cost of a $70,000 trip to Britain by House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.), his wife, two aides and two lobbyists in mid-2000, two months before DeLay helped kill legislation opposed by the tribe and the company.

The sponsor of the week-long trip listed in DeLay's financial disclosures was the nonprofit National Center for Public Policy Research, but a person involved in arranging DeLay's travel said that lobbyist Jack Abramoff suggested the trip and then arranged for checks to be sent by two of his clients, the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and eLottery Inc.

The dates on the checks coincided with the day DeLay left on the trip, May 25, 2000, according to grants documents reviewed by The Washington Post. The Choctaw and eLottery each sent a check for $25,000, according to the documents. They now say that they were unaware the money was being used to finance DeLay's travels.

This is just another example of what some republicans are all about. If I were a real republican I would be doing some house keeping on behalf of my party. Guy like Delay are like a cancer on the party and will eventually help bring the party down. Obviously the ethics of the republicans are no where to be found.I am excited to see guys like Delay get away with this crap because it one day soon iy will come to a screeching holt!Keeping lying and cheating the American public you sumbag Neocons! Your Day is comming!Wake Up America!
