    Scalia rejects Texas GOP appeal on DeLay

    WASHINGTON - Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Monday rejected a request by Texas Republicans to block an appeals court ruling that says former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's name must appear on the November ballot.


    Democrats are suing to keep DeLay on the ballot, with the former lawmaker's legal troubles becoming a symbol for claims of Republican corruption.

    DeLay, who is under indictment in state court in Texas, won a March primary before resigning June 9 from Congress.

    Texas Republican Party chairwoman Tina Benkiser requested the delay of the appeals court ruling until Republicans can formally ask the Supreme Court to review the case

    What? Scalia not being a tool of the republican party? But I thought the Supreme Court was corrupt?

    A court with principles--regardless of what democrats say.

    DeLay's Wife Under Investigation

    "The Justice Department's congressional lobbying-and-bribery investigation is looking into whether former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's wife received money from a lobbying firm for a no-show job," the Wall Street Journal reports.

    "Agents have interviewed several people at the Alexander Strategy Group lobbying firm to determine if Christine DeLay was being paid $3,200 a month -- a total of $115,000 over three years -- but not earning it."

    Wow! Shades of the deal that Harry Reid's sons benefited from! I can't recall which Dem politicians were caught doing the same thing "friends and family on the campaign trail" in the last cycle.

    Don't get me wrong, it stinks. But it is also accepted practice with our Beltway class. This is just more tar and feathers by the Socialist Democrats.

    It'll be funny when Delay retains this seat.
