Good Riddance, DeLay

Tom Scumbag DeLay will leave his crooked seat of power in the House of Reps. on June 9th. That doesn't mean his elbow twisting days are over, just that he won't necessarily be in the cloakroom with his concealed weapon during votes anymore. He'll have to send henchmen or pressure other congressthugs over the phone or at their houses. 21 years of the bugman is more than enough criminal activity. He's a disgusting slimebag, already under indictment in Travis County, Texas for campaign finance violations. His Abramoff connected activities have yet to garner him the indictment he deserves. He's a corrupt little bastard. He denies any wrongdoing, of course. Lying comes naturally to him.
"As you are aware, I have recently made the decision to pursue new opportunities to engage in the important cultural and political battles of our day from an arena outside of the U.S. House of Representatives. As a result, I am informing you of my intention to formally resign as the representative of the 22nd Congressional District of Texas to be effective at the close of business on June 9, 2006."
DeLay's replacement as head muscleman, Boehner, Ohio thug, is also a crook, who oh-so-conveniently buried lobby reform. (Boehner isn't pronounced "Bay-ner" as he insists, it would be "Boh-ner"...closer to its original German. That's right, John Boner!)The party of NO ethics is still in charge with or without DeLay.Newly elected House Majority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) said he opposed efforts to ban privately funded travel for members of Congress and provisions in spending bills that fund lawmakers' pet projects. Boehner is just as dirty as DeLay, just not quite as disgustingly flamboyant. They're a bunch of corrupt bastards who have stolen all our dough. Jail is too good for them.
"In the past, when these scandals have erupted, what's happened is Congress has overreacted, and two days later nobody knew what happened," he said on "Fox News Sunday." He said he would favor more disclosure of dealings with lobbyists but would not seek complete bans on travel or "earmark" provisions. "Bringing more transparency to this relationship, I think, is the best way to control it. But taking actions to ban this and ban that, when there's no appearance of a problem, there's no foundation of a problem, I think, in fact, does not serve the institution well."
How about serving the people well for a change, bastard.

DeLay's House seat is up for grabs with Mike Lampson (D) fending off seven Republican contenders. You can bet DeLay will be "involved" in the race from behind the moneyed scenes.

DeLay said last month he would step aside to give the party a better shot at holding his House seat in Texas. Seven Republicans are vying for the right to replace DeLay in the November race against Democrat Nick Lampson.

The contenders interviewed over the weekend with local party leaders in DeLay's home district. The local leaders will pick the new candidate, probably sometime in June, in a race considered potentially one of the most competitive in the country.

Don't get too comfortable, Bone boy.
* Boehner has taken more than $157,000 in free trips, placing him seventh among 638 current and former members of Congress, including senators, in the value of privately funded travel accepted between 2000 and 2005, according to American Radioworks. These included a $4,869 trip to Scotland in 2000 and a $9,050 trip to Rome in 2001, both of which were sponsored by the Ripon Educational Fund, a nonprofit group largely run by business lobbyists. Family members traveled with him for free on both trips.
