Why DeLay Didn't Delay

One of the factors that may have motivated Tom DeLay's withdraw from his Congressional race is that he can now use all of the money in his campaign fund for his legal defense.

According to Federal Election Commission Advisory Opinion 2000-40, campaign funds can be used for legal defense where, as is likely the case with DeLay, the defense fund relates to allegations that arise out of his official duties. As of February 15, DeLay's campaign fund had cash of almost $1.3 Million.

Our friendly exterminator DeLay,

Rich does he like to play,

But you sir will stand accused of malicious fiction,

Soley because he is a Christian.
