Tom Delay; an unethical man. Avatar Enlargement: We've got the solution


Some of you may remember House Republican Majority Leader Tom Delay as the man who redistricted Texas in order to gerrymander everything in the Republicans favor. Others may remember him as the man who has been admonished four times by the House Ethics Commitee for unethical behavior. Currently Tom Delay has been indited for circumventing Federal laws concerning the funding of Political Action Commitees and for accepting illegal "gifts" (honest people would say bribes) to cover travel expenses.

House Republican Ethics rules originally said that anyone who was even under investigation was ineligible to hold a leadership position, however, the day before Tom Delay was indited the rules were changed so that Tom Delay could continue to hold the leadership position for House Republicans. As you might expect Democrats howled but what the Republicans don't like to talk about is that a number of prominent Republican Congressional members believed it was unethical as well. How did Tom Delay handling his Republican detractors? He used his powers as Majority Leader to purge all Republicans from the House Ethics Commitee who would vote against him.

The reason I bring this up now is some people seem to believe the investigation against Tom Delay is an entirely partisan matter. I was discussing this matter with another person who's a conservative and a know Republican mouth piece at another site and this person claimed that only a partisan hack wouldn't agree that the inditment was a fraud. This person (I'll give you a hint he's prominent over at that bastion of fair and balanced thinking FFZ) claimed it was all a democratic plot and that by speaking of Tom Delay's obviously unethical and possibly illegal behavior I was being a cry baby.

So who's right? Is Tom Delay an unethical man as being admonished four times by the House Ethics Commitee and indicted for two crimes would lead people to believe or is he just the most misunderstood person in Congress? Let's hear your thoughts.

BTW here's the DNC's take on Tom Delay. http://www.democrats.org/specialrep...file/index.html

I don't. I told Chris to go **** himself and walked off. Of course, Chris being Chris, he tried to make a show of it and claim I was banned but it is hard when my last post was somthing along the line of "**** you and your website I'm out of here".

I'm talking about yet more moronic posting made by Chris over at Counterglow. Chris claimed that only a partisan hack would agree with the charges against Tom Delay when most people would likely say that accepting bribes and breaking federal laws concerning the funding of political action commites is unethical. If there was any justic Tom Delay would see the inside of a prison but as his abuse of authority in the house ethics commitee proved Tom Delay will remove anyone who votes against him and the entire process is compromised due to this fact. Can anyone name another organization where the accused can remove anyone on the jury who votes against him?

America is in deep trouble because of unethical men like Tom Delay.

Fair is fair, Oerdin. You want to shoot at the man? Post it where he can see it.

Sorry Vincent.

Yeah, so sad he'd talk shit about someone at a completely different forum. Probably because he's too scared to do it to his face.

Oh wait.

Also would have been nice to have brought this to Chris's attention privately instead of dragging it here.

That doesn't make sense. CG is the home of the oftentimes stupid, useless, or just plain irritating thread. I'd say this qualifies for being on-topic :p

Chris, when did the RNC put you on the payroll? Are they doing it via Demoncraps favorite ways, hiring your wife and paying her $300K to keep you happy? Or is it a spit in the face of the public direct bribery? I'm just curious. ;)

I don't see why NYE didn't PM this to Chris... unless he thinks Chris has him on ignore. Other then that, Oerdin and Chris fighting over this is old news here.

This thread had so little potential, and it lived up to none of it.
