Is this what brings DeLay down?

Public Campaign Action Fund is now Every Voice. Check out our new website:

Just got this tip from a reader:


In his proffer, Rudy admits violating the Ethics In Government Act's one-year lobbying ban on former senior Hill staffers by soliciting from DeLay's office "support for legislation providing for reparations payments to certain U.S. citizens from assets in [the] United States of foreign companies and governments."


This is a reference to Section 201(c) of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, Public Law No. 107-297, which allowed several U.S. citizens to collect judgments against Iran.


Rudy lobbied for two other law firms to get this provision inserted into the act:

Sprenger & Lang

Westerman, Shapiro, Dragi & Miller


If DeLay claimed credit for getting that provision into the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, its game over.


Well, what do you think? Post them below, or send me an email at ddonnelly [at] campaignmoney [dot] org. 


UPDATE: Here are two more links for Tony Rudy's lobbying for Sprenger and Westerman
