Pop Quiz - Why is DeLay Leaving Now?

Is it because he:

1. Wants to spend more time with his family?
2. Wants to save the Republican Party more stress?
3. That if he gets out now, he can use all of the money he's got left from donations to his campaign (mostly from folks who have legislation in Congress), for those pesky legal bills?

Yes, indeed. Federal election rules will let DeLay convert ALL remaining campaign funds to personal legal expenses. So the quicker he gets out, the more money he has for legal fees. Last time this was done? Does the name "Duke" Cunningham ring any bells?

I would like to put a motion in to get rid of that little loophole whenever they decide to deal with ethics in Congress.
