LWI: Lobbying While Indicted

From the Texas Observer


John Colyandro’s criminal indictments have not prevented the ex-director of Tom DeLay’s Texans for a Republican Majority PAC (TRMPAC) from landing contracts to lobby the government that he is accused of illegally helping to elect. Rather, a Travis County grand jury’s criminal charges against Colyandro last fall for allegedly breaking a state prohibition on corporate contributions may have actually boosted his lobby stature. An alternative explanation is that Team DeLay is taking care of a man who knows too much.


Be sure to watch Travis County DA Ronnie Earle on 60 Minutes this Sunady, March 6.

A message to all Feministers in Service to the Estrogenated Elite from The Minister of Proper Gander:
Oy, that would be me. The Heretik. A Heretik Manifesto on Uppity Women is now available here. All hail the Estrogenated Elite and Sheelzebub, President for Life!
Roll on, Cuddlefish, rol on.
