Results 1 - 10 of about 669,000 for Tom DeLay + Cancer.

Boy, the hammer is the gift that just keeps on giving. Centuries from now, future archeologists will be digging up remains of his machinations. I bet that some of the scandals can be seen from space.

Today’s Chronicle has a story about lobbying by the Texas Medical Center. These entities out- perform most lobbyists client’s return on investment. Baylor, for example parlayed $120,000 into Federal grants totaling $240 million. The Med Center totaled $1.6 million spent on lobbyists in ’07 to score $500 million in Federal grants.

This is wonderful news in some ways, but if all this is such a boon to the public, why do they need to pay to get the news out to our public servants?

But the part that tickled me was to read that M. D. Anderson paid former DeLay staffer Timothy Rupli‘s firm $180,000 last year, but declined to extend his contract this year. Those guys got their fingers into everything didn’t they? This is an odd fit because Rupli’s biggest clients specialized in predatory banking practices in the payday lending and sub-prime mortgage markets. Damned vampires.

It’s like if we want to find a cure for cancer, what we need to do is take Tom DeLay out to some fancy dinners with good wine and big cigars, and then fly him off to some swank country club resort for a round of golf.
