From Tom Delay[edit]

Tom "The Hammer" Delay is an ex-exterminator who dabbled in United States politics by trying to exterminate the American Democracy.

He was a key proponent of the K Street Project, which was a plan by the Republican Party to get ex-Republican politicians secure jobs as high-priced lobbyists. He was also reprimanded twice by the US House Ethics Committee for corruption, before, finally, being forced out of office by an indictment related to his good friend Jack Abramoff.


He still thinks the chances of himself going to jail are very low. (Ed. Apparently, he may have been right. The cases haven't gone to court yet, 2 years later.) Apparently, Conservapedia is obsessed with him.

Office?[edit]

The article says he was booted out of office, but never actually says what office he held.--Mustex 21:09, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

It does clearly imply he was a Representative, though, yeah it could be a lot clearer about his political career. ħumanUser talk:Human 21:59, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
Not only was he a US representative, but he was the House Majority leader. AnarchoGoon Swatting Assflys is how I earn my living 22:47, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
