Tom Delay

From dKosopedia

Tom DeLay (Republican Representative for the TX-22, but only temporarily.

First elected to Congress in 1985 this former Houston exterminator and squeaky fundamentalist Protestant rose to become Deputy Whip in 1988, Majority Whip in 1994 (against the wishes of the equally repulsive Next Gingrich) and House Majority Leader in 2002 with the retirement of Dick Armey. After several years of subverting American democracy DeLay is now focused on staying out of prison. He now lives in Virginia while he awaits trial on money laundering and conspiracy charges.

During the War in Vietnam the now militaristic Delay escaped miltiary service through college deferments and marriage at Southern Baptist Baylor University.

Once the god-king of Texas Republicans, DeLay has become an albatros around their necks. On August 3, a Federal Appeals Court refused to allow Texas Republicans to remove Delay's name from the 2006 general election ballot, upholding the Federal District Court's decision.

In 2007 Delay got aught admitting he hoped US policy towards Israel would cause the apocalypse. [1]
