Raw Story is reporting that Tom DeLay's legal bills in 2006 now top $400,000.
Not to worry.
According to OpenSecrets.org, as of March 31, 2006, DeLay's campaign committee had cash on hand of $1,450,959. As previously reported here, he can spend all of that on his legal defense. Of course, according to reports filed on February 15, upon which I based my last report, DeLay only had $1.3 million cash on hand. And, according to the Raw Story report, the $400,000 in legal fees paid by DeLay this year also include $110,000 from his campaign fund.
In essence, DeLay's campaign fund has become a $1.56 million legal defense fund.
