DeLay's legal bills mount

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

There was lots of speculation that Tom DeLay delayed his departure from Congress and his re-election campaign in order to raise as much money as possible for his campaign and then use that money to fund his legal defense.


Now there's a little more evidence to back that up -- Raw Story, based on a Roll Call report, posted a story this morning about how high DeLay's legal bills have mounted: $400,000. That's a difficult amount to raise when you're no longer Majority Leader, and no longer sitting in Duke Cunningham's Appropriations Committee seat.
