Old GOP to Current GOP: Stop Protecting DeLay!
It doesn't get any better than this:
Ten former members of Congress, all Republicans, sent a letter on Friday to the House leadership saying they believed that recent revisions in House ethics rules were an "obvious action to protect Majority Leader Tom DeLay" from investigation. They called for the changes to be reversed "to restore public confidence in the People's House." [...] ... As one of the signatories, former congressman Pete McCloskey put it, "if the Republicans circle their wagons around DeLay like they circled their wagons around Richard Nixon, it may have the same result."Of course, the current House GOP is protecting him because this is The House That Tom DeLay Built. Most of these people owe their jobs to him. This helps emphasize that It's Not Just DeLay.
