The money machine keeps on moving

I'm sure you will all be pleased to hear that Tom DeLay's fundraising has kept up a brisk pace despite the whole resigning-from-Congress thing. Hey, whatever, if the people who gave for one purpose only to find out later that their donations have been regifted are okay with it, I'm okay with it. But just we're all clear on one point:

Others want DeLay to give the money to political activists who hold similar political views.

"I think he should use it for the purposes of advancing his agenda," said Lee Leaman, president of the Home Lumber & Hardware Co. of Richmond. Leaman donated $4,000 to DeLay's campaign.

I have good news and bad news for you, Lee. The good news is that DeLay will indeed use the money you gave him towards advancing his agenda. The bad news is that currently his agenda consists entirely of "keeping my butt out of jail". Hope that helps.

Can he legally use the money for a defense fund?

According to everything I've read, he can.

Oh, this is just too rich: you give money to a corrupt scumbag politician to buy some favors, and then, whodathunkit? He turns around and uses the money for his own purposes, leaving you with high and dry with no results for your cash.

Cry me a river.
