Green and Ryan still refusing to return PAC money

Wisconsin congressmen Mark Green and Paul Ryan are still holding on to their DeLay dollars.

They're both claiming that they are unable to return the money for legal reasons. This week, another congressmen, Rep. Kenny Hulshof (R-MO), donated his nearly $15,000 received from Rep. Tom DeLay's TRMPAC to charity. Certainly that's an option for Green and Ryan if they're concerned about violating campaign finance law.

Xoff is urging people to head over to this Racine Journal Times link and lend Ryan some advice on the right thing to do.

As noted here last week, Green received $29,414 and Ryan received $25,390 from TRMPAC which has been under investigation. DeLay has now been indicted on counts of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering using TRMPAC as the vehicle.

UPDATE: The state Dems have set up a website urging Green to return his share of the PAC money.
