Rep. Kenny Hulshof (R-MO) has announced that he will not keep the $14,500 he has received from indicted former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's ARMPAC in his campaign coffers.
"The Missouri Republican also will not support DeLay's return to a leadership role, even if he is acquitted of all charges, spokesman Scott Baker said Monday," reports the Associated Press.
"'He feels it's better to disassociate himself with the situation and not let it become a distraction,' Baker said."
Hulshof, who will donate the money to Katrina relief efforts, is the third member of Congress to voluntarily return DeLay's PAC money. Just a day after the indictment, New Hampshire Rep. Jeb Bradley returned $15,000. Rep. Heather Wilson (R-NM) will return $10,000 in ARMPAC contributions to her 2006 campaign account.
