Contradicting Tom DeLay

CNN keeps running DeLay's diatribe against Ronnie Earle in which DeLay says he's never violated a rule of the House. That's just demonstrably wrong. House rules prevent a member from accepting contributions to their legal defense funds from lobbyists. Public Citizen reported months ago that DeLay's legal defense fund likely violated this rule and only returned the money when the violation was brought to the trustee's attention by Public Citizen.

Much more information is available here and here.
