CREW: The Hammer Belongs in the Slammer

Abby Zimet

Tom Delay - Former House Majority Leader, recipient of many goodies
from lobbyist Jack Abramoff, aspiring dancer and dubbed by many the most
corrupt member of Congress, which is going some - will not face federal corruption charges
after a six-year investigation, federal officials said. Delay still
faces criminal charges in Texas, the only consolation to the Citizens
for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which blasted the decision.

"It's a sad day for America when one of the most corrupt
members to ever walk the halls of Congress gets a free pass...The Hammer belongs in
the slammer. Mr. DeLay still has crimes to answer for in Texas -
generally not considered the best place to be a criminal defendant." – Melanie Sloan of CREW
