Another tip on Tony Rudy's factual proffer. In violation of the Ethics statutes with he lobbied "the leadership staff of Representative #2 on legislation affecting automobile emissions." Representative #2, remember is Tom DeLay. During that time, Rudy was a registered lobbyist for the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers. How much has Tom DeLay raised from automobile makers?
Over his career, DeLay raised $301,000 for his committee from this sector, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
And I'm sure he's received much, much more through ARMPAC and TRMPAC. What about you?
