Or will he manage to scuttle back under the baseboards (again)?
The Stakeholder has the story:
A company that made a $50,000 contribution to a Republican political action committee has agreed to cooperate with a state investigation into possible illegal campaign contributions in exchange for the dismissal of charges against it, according to a motion approved by a judge Thursday.One can only hope that the captured canaries at Diversified Collections will actually sing enough to nail our Dear Majority Leader once and for all.
Diversified Collections Services, Inc. was one of eight corporations accused of giving a total of $190,000 to Texans for a Republican Majority during the 2002 legislative campaign. The use of corporate money for political purposes is illegal in Texas.
Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle said in the motion to dismiss that the company agreed to cooperate with the state "in its prosecution of any other indicted person for any offense related to the corporate contribution."
Three associates of Republican U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay also have been indicted in the ongoing investigation.
