Tom DeLay Says He Will Give Up His Seat

Monday 03 April 2006
Rep. Tom DeLay, whose iron hold on the House Republicans melted as a lobbying corruption scandal engulfed the Capitol, told TIME that he will not seek reelection and will leave Congress within months. Taking defiant swipes at "the left" and the press, he said he feels "liberated" and vowed to pursue an aggressive speaking and organizing campaign aimed at promoting foster care, Republican candidates and a closer connection between religion and government.
"I'm going to announce tomorrow that I'm not running for reelection and that I'm going to leave Congress," DeLay, who turns 59 on Saturday, said during a 90-minute interview on Monday.
Ding-dong the witch is OUSTED!
But that isn't enough. Like Randy Cunningham, Tom DeLay BROKE THE LAW and he deserves jail time. One by one, we have to bring the Corrupt Halliburton Republicans to justice.
Write a letter to the editor saying "good riddance" to Tom DeLay and suggesting that his next stop should be the same prison cell holding his buddies in corruption, Randy Cunningham and Jack Abramoff. We can't let Tom DeLay slink off to haunt us for years to come. We have to demand that he be tried for his crimes.
Finally, we have to make an effort to replace those who are brought down by corruption with grassroots Democrats. And we HAVE THAT CHANCE.
In just 7 days we have the chance to replace Randy Cunningham with Democracy for America endorsed Democrat Francine Busby. This is the FIRST CONGRESSIONAL ELECTION OF 2006. It would rock big time if we win it. PLEASE donate to her campaign today, or, better yet, Join MoveOn.org's phone banking from home for Busby. Ten or twenty or thirty minutes of your time with your cell phone could win the election for Busby. Please give cash or time to win the first Congressional election of 2006 and to replace corrupt Randy Cunningham with grassroots Francine Busby.
Then, let's make Tom DeLay's seat our next target. And let's aim for EACH AND EVERY seat occupied by a corrupt Republican. I want to introduce you to an Act Blue list someone has put together called 2006 Crooks Out targeting the most corrupt Republicans. Tom DeLay's TX-22 seat is top of that list. Please donate to end Republican Corruption in Congress!
