Harriett Miers/Tom DeLay Connection

Our friends over at Public Citizen have been looking into the details of who has contributed to former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's sizable legal defense fund.

"Under House rule XXV (5)(c)(3), registered lobbyists are prohibited from making contributions to a member’s legal defense fund," the release states.

The fund also received donations totaling $4,500 in 2001 from Locke Liddell & Sapp -- the Texas firm that brand-new Supreme Court nominee Harriett Miers was a managing partner of. At the time, it was a registered lobbying firm.
