DeLay Threatens Ethics Charges Against McKinney

Human Events reports that matter and anti-matter may be about to meet.

Soon-to-retire Rep. Tom DeLay (R.-Tex.) said today he would file an ethics complaint against Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D.-Ga.) for striking a Capitol Police officer should no other House member do so first. DeLay’s comments came during a wide-ranging interview at his Capitol Hill office with reporters, including HUMAN EVENTS Editor Terry Jeffrey. “If nobody in this House files an ethics charge, I am,” DeLay said in response to a question about McKinney. “Her behavior is outrageous. And it’s not the only time.”

My head is spinning.

    How about a DeLay-McKinney cage match on pay-per-view?

    I’d pay to see that

  4. As Delay said, there is something liberating about not running for office anymore. If he is smart about who he goes after, he could have a whole second career on pointing out the most ludicrous of the left.

    In fact, it would probably help “rehabilitate” him. Specifically, every time he does it, there will be a standard blurb on his scandal history. But as he lampoons more people that are universally begging to be lampooned (e.g. McKinney), the venom will be drawn from the blurb. People will say if he is doing such a great job lampooning the naked emperors, then maybe the problem isn’t with him, but with the guy righting the blurb.

  5. DeLay is awesome.
