Republicans Give Disgraced Delay Key Committee Post

@ 11:30 PM (99 months, 26 days ago)

Republicans continue to show they are the party that rewards incompetence, not to mention unethical and illegal behavior.

Disgraced former Majority Leader Tom Delay, who has been indicted on charges of money laundering, was rewarded for his behavior with a slot on the Appropriations Committee.  The Appropriations Committee is one of the most sought-after committee assignments in the House.

Delay was also given a position on the House sub-committee which oversees the Justice Department.  Coincidentally, the Justice Department just happens to be investigating the influence-peddling scandal that Jack Abramoff is caught up in.

And speaking of Abramoff, the disgraced lobbyist now says he met with George W. Bush on at least 12 occassions, which of course is in complete contradiction with the Bush Crime Team's claims that Bush did not know Abramoff. 

DeLay wins key committee assignment

Abramoff says he met Bush "almost a dozen" times
