DeLay and Exxon

ExxonMobil just posted record profits for the third quarter, some $9.92 billion, the largest quarterly profit of any corporation in U.S. history, according to the Associated Press.

DeLay owns at least $50,000 in ExxonMobil stock (pdf) and has taken $589,900 from oil and gas interests over his career. That's why he has passed legislative favors for them.

He's gotta be happy today.

How about you? Do you like paying close to $3 a gallon for gas just so ExxonMobil and its politician-stockholders can get record profits?
