DC Bed Buddies: Tom Davis & Tom Delay
Thanks to the DCCC via Zeeb, I can now find out just how tangled up Tom Delay is with Virginia politicians, on the Tom Delay House of Scandal website:
The D-trip crowd have done a really great job with this. Go check it out for yourself.
Thomas Davis has taken $4,520 from Tom DeLay's ARMPAC. No surprise that Davis voted with Tom DeLay 93% of the time between Jan. 1 2004 and March 31 2005. Is this the kind of government-for-hire that working families deserve? Thomas Davis voted to weaken the ethics rules in a move that many say served only to protect Tom DeLay.
Does the integrity of the House mean so little that Thomas Davis would sacrifice it to defend Tom DeLay?
When Democrats offered a solution to clean up the House by strengthening ethics rules, Thomas Davis voted to make sure it never even came to an up or down vote.
So instead of a bipartisan effort to get government working for Americans, Thomas Davis stood for cronyism and partisan politics.
