Democrats dejected: Abramoff clears local US Congressman Tom Delay

Let's see if the MSM covers this part of the Tom Delay story. The following information reported by Novak deals a crushing blow to the attempts by the liberals to defeat Delay in November.

Delay's 22nd Congressional District now includes areas in Galveston County and the Harris County section of League City.

According to Robert Novak writing for Townhall:

WASHINGTON -- Disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff has advised friends that he has no derogatory information about former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and is not implicating him as part of his plea bargain with federal prosecutors.

Abramoff's guilty plea on fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy charges requires him to provide evidence about members of Congress. That led to speculation that this would mean trouble for DeLay, who faces money laundering and conspiracy charges in Texas.

However, Abramoff has not given a clean bill of health to any other congressman -- including Rep. Robert Ney, who has stepped down as chairman of the House Administration Committee. Ney was the only member of Congress named in court papers connected with Abramoff's guilty plea Jan. 4.
