The first Monday of the New Year is starting with a bang... I am working on a few posts with lots of updates, news stories, reports from a press conference by seven groups (including Public Campaign/Public Campaign Action Fund) calling on Congress to clean up its act, etc. etc. etc.

An editorial in the Houston Chronicle hits the nail on the head regarding the irony of DeLay negotiating an agreement on a local issue in his district. And they explain well exactly what I have been thinking on it.

Richard Cohen of the National Journal has a lengthy article summing up all the swirling problems around Majority Leader Tom DeLay. It is a subscription only service, so I will excerpt passages from it to give a flavor of how damning the evidence is that mounts against the Hammer, and the worry among Republicans about their leader. Read through the excerpts to see the credit the Daily DeLay gets!

We have more information on where five additional members stand on the DeLay Rule, and we have updated our database. Cass Ballenger of North Carolina, Amo Houghton of New York, and Nathan Deal of Georgia abstained from the vote, bring the number of members not voting to 36.

I forgot to post this last week... We did have a winner of Is That A Politician in Your Pocket? for being the 5,000th signer of the petition: J. Henley of SW Florida. Our winner wrote that taking action on-line in “corrective political efforts” helps to “protect democracy.” Congratulations!
