Not Exactly Rallying Around DeLay

Money is not exactly pouring into Tom DeLay's Legal Defense Fund, according to an Associated Press report. He collected $47,750 during the first three months of the year, comapred to $254,250 raised in the last three months of 2004. During the first three months of this year, DeLay also spent $34,000, largely on attorneys' fees. Dan Allen, DeLay's spokesman, trys to put a positive spin on it, saying DeLay is pleased with the support "helping him fend off the barrage of attacks" he attributes to "the Democrats and their allies."
