All in all it showed Congressman Delay to be as amazingly corrupt and arrogant.
But for the local Pittsburgh audience, the lovelyMs Stahl left out an interesting tid-bit - here in these paragraphs:
[American Enterprise Institute scholar Norm] Ornstein says the Republicans are worried because DeLay has already been admonished by the House Ethics Committee for questionable conduct.Now who do you think is among those two new members?
"Tom DeLay was rebuked on three separate matters by the House Ethics Committee in the last Congress, an extraordinary slap at the leader," says Ornstein. "But they left open pending a fourth issue, which was the Ronnie Earle case in Texas. So what did the House Republicans do? They fire the chairman of the Ethics Committee. They removed two members."
And two of the replacements had contributed to DeLay’s legal defense fund.
Check out this story here. It's our very own Melissa Hart. I couldn't find any reference to her mebership on Delay's ethics committee on her Congressional website (now why would THAT be the case??).

A Question for the Congresswoman: Were you appointed to that "ethics" committee to protect Tom Delay?
