Bi-partisan House Ethics Panel Rebukes DeLay

A unanimous vote by the five Republican, five Democrat House Ethics Panel “Hammers” DeLay for ethics violations.

“In view of the number of instances to date in which the committee has found it necessary to comment on conduct in which you engaged, it is clearly necessary for you to temper your future actions,” the committee said in a letter to DeLay.

The ethics committee voted to “take no action” on a third ethics violation that is currently under grand jury investigation in Texas.

It dealt with the fundraising group Texans for a Republican Majority Political Action Committee, or TRMPAC, to which DeLay is closely linked. A Texas grand jury last month indicted three of DeLay’s political associates on charges of using TRMPAC to illegally collect corporate donations and funnel them to Texas legislative races.
