Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee

The resume of corruption continues to grow for House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX). From today's edtion of the Financial Times:

"Among his troubles are new allegations about a trip Mr DeLay, his wife, two aides and two lobbyists took to Britain in mid-2000, during which he played golf at St Andrews and visited Margaret Thatcher. The Washington Post reported on Saturday that Choctaw Indians and a gambling services company made donations to a Washington group that covered most of the $70,000 (€52,000, £36,400) costs of the trip, just two months before Mr DeLay helped defeat a regulatory measure the tribe and the company opposed.

Mr DeLay has said the trip was paid for by a Washington-based research group, as permitted by House ethics rules. But questions on the true nature and funding of this trip, and another to Korea, prompted calls for a full ethics investigation."

Think Progress has a nice "greatest hits" of DeLay's scandals. There's been so much to keep track of, it helps to review.
