Tom DeLay is a very public figure; while from Texas, whose votes in Congress affected the country. It always brings me great joy to see those who abuse power receive punishment; Right, Left, or otherwise. With his close association to Jack Abramoff is proof positive of his scum factor.
The Jack Abramoff Indian lobbying scandal is a United States political scandal relating to the work performed by political lobbyists Jack Abramoff, Ralph E. Reed, Jr., Grover Norquist and Michael Scanlon on Indian casino gambling interests for an estimated $85 million in fees. Abramoff and Scanlon grossly overbilled their clients, secretly splitting the multimillion-dollar profits. In one case, they secretly orchestrated lobbying against their own clients in order to force them to pay for lobbying services.
In the course of the scheme, the lobbyists were accused of illegally giving gifts and making campaign donations to legislators in return for votes or support of legislation. Representative Bob Ney (R-OH) and two aides to Tom DeLay (R-TX) have been directly implicated; other politicians, mostly Republican lawmakers with connections to Indian affairs, have various ties.

The utter contempt these callous feks have for humanity is unimaginable. Regardless of what happens on this earth, they have a special place waiting for them on the other side. That is, if they even believe.
