Articles & Commentary







  • "Part I: Tom DeLay's Axis of Influence": "From his deep ties to Enron to South Pacific sweatshops, Tom DeLay has built a well-financed and ruthless axis of influence."
  • "Part II: DeLay's Judge Dread": "America's founding fathers made the judiciary independent for a reason. But never mind the Constitution -- when Tom DeLay doesn't like a decision for political reasons, he uses threats to intimidate judges."
  • "Part III: DeLay's Godfather": "If a person can be judged by his choice of friends, then Tom DeLay should face harsh judgement for his buddy Jack Abramoff. From his brush with mob hits, to his ties to gambling interests, to his support of the South African apartheid regime, Abramoff is a strange bedfellow, indeed."
  • "Part IV: DeLay's Unregulated Pacific 'Paradise'": "No rules, no regulators, no inspectors, no health and safety laws. What more could a sweatshop operator ask for? Welcome to the Mariana Islands, a U.S. protectorate and Tom DeLay's very own pet project."
  • "Part V: DeLay's Miscellaneous Machinations": "It's one thing for voters back home to send someone as far outside the mainstream as Tom DeLay to Congress. But the prospect of him becoming the second most powerful member of the House is another thing."
