DeLay: Ethics reform is a Left wing Conspiracy

(graphic by the incredible Monk)

Where have we heard this before? Tom Delay just loved doing business with his buddy Jack Abramoff and just recently said at the Rosenberg-Richmond Chamber of Commerce, on 1/27 that lobbyist reforms are driven by the left groups and not corruption.

Delay: This effort is being driven by the left wing groups like Common Cause, Democracy 21, the ACLU and others...their ultimate goal is public financing of campaigns and total isolation of elected officials."

It's Friday and I'm tired-so if you want to list all the wonderful places, islands and golf trips "The Hammer" has enjoyed because of Abramoff, be my guest.

Can you help us out?
