Jim Hearts Tom
The closeness of Jim Walsh and Tom DeLay should be unsettling to everyone. In this culture of corruption in Washington, it shows that Jim Walsh isn't an agent of change, he's just more of the same. We need someone with the courage to stand up to the out of touch special interests and scandal plagued lobbyists.
- Jim Walsh votes 93% of the time with Tom DeLay!
- Jim Walsh voted to allow Tom DeLay to stay Majority Leader even if he was indicted.
- Inspite of the growing culture of corruption, Jim Walsh voted to weaken the House Ethics Rules and then voted to block a Democratic plan to strengthen them.
- And finally to show where he really stands, Mr. Walsh donated $1,000 to Tom DeLay Legal Defense Fund, because the powerful are never guilty.
And just to show that Tom DeLay is more than weak morals and non-existent ethics here a little gem from him on the causes of the Columbine shooting:
"Guns have little or nothing to do with juvenile violence. The causes of youth violence are working parents who put their kids into daycare, the teaching of evolution in the schools, and working mothers who take birth control pills."
