The House Ethics Committee has ruled that Tom DeLay violated ethics rules when he tried to influence Rep. Nick Smith's vote on the Medicare bill by promising to endorse Smith's son's House candidacy. The committee tried to bury this story by releasing their report on the same night as the Presidential debate. DeLay has a viable Democratic challenger this year in Richard Morrison, who is only 10 points behind in the polls. Go make a donation and maybe they'll be one less scumbag in the House next year.
