Tom DeLay (and Rick Gervais)

Former GOP Majority Leader Tom DeLay announced that thousands of dollars in donations to his legal defense fund were not reported or were understated. CNN:

He wrote officials that $20,850 contributed in 2000 and 2001 was not reported anywhere. Another $17,300 was included in the defense fund's quarterly report but not in DeLay's 2000 annual financial disclosure report -- a separate requirement.

Other donations were understated as totaling $2,800, when the figure should have been $4,450.

It was during that period that DeLay was the subject of several House ethics investigations.

I think it is now appropriate for me to announce my casting choice in an opera about Tom DeLay's legal woes. Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Rick Gervais as Tom DeLay!
