Help DeLay!

Speaking of fundraising, it seems that not everyone is doing quite as well as Howard Dean. Public Citizen reports:

For the first time, DeLay's legal defense contributions did not keep pace with his legal fees. In the past three months, DeLay's legal defense fund raised only $42,900 – $13,311 less than his legal expenses for the same period, which totaled $56,211.92. DeLay's legal defense fund has spent a total of $90,216 this year.

What's interesting here is that DeLay's own congressional colleagues are backing away slowly, no longer contributing quite as much to their majority leader's defense fund. Meanwhile, still no word on whether the newly formed House ethics committee is going to undertake a formal investigation of DeLay.
