The US Family Network, an advocacy group with close ties to Tom Delay, wasnt taking donations from families, but from Russian oil executives, and although Tom Delay claims he was never influenced by the Russians, his votes on bills favorable to the Russians shows differently. One million dollars was paid to get Delay's vote on the International Monetary Fund, which Russia needed to keep its economy from collapsing.

But that is not all. All of Tom Delay's lies about not being connected to Jack Abramoff are now debunked. The paper trail shows that Abramoff and Delay were as financially connected as Siamese twins.

I was hoping that Delay would not be handed a federal indictment because I wanted him to do time in a Texas prison, not a Federal country club. Looks like Delay is going to end up getting in the country club.
