Old Habits Are Hard To Break

With a primary battle taking place in Texas to determine Tom DeLay's future DeLay be at a lobbyist's fundraising bash in Washingtom.

The fundraiser will be hosted by lobbyists Bill Paxon and Susan Molinari, both former members of Congress from New York. Paxon is now a lobbyist with Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP. What makes this a story worthy of local note?

Former Health and Human Services Secretary, former Wisconsin Governor, until Tuesday on Scooter Jensen's character witness list and Akin Gump partner Tommy Thompson is also listed as a co-host of the DeLay event.

Boy this administration really has corruption covered from petty all the way up the to pilfering 9 billion dollars in Iraq. Did anyone see this?


I was amazed at someone in a Presidents administration getting caught up in such a small time crime scheme.
