Now Tom DeLay is accused of taking a luxury trip to Saipan paid for by a DC sleazebag lobbying to stop a bill that would end sex slavery and sweatshops in the Mariana Islands, which is United States territory.
Three new potential scandals in one day? Remember in the 1990’s how the Gops kept saying about the Clintons – “if there’s smoke there’s fire?” Funny how you don’t hear them saying that now about the Bugman.
What will we tell the children?
A Washington lobbyist under federal investigation for his lobbying activities arranged a lavish overseas trip to the island of Saipan for House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, over the New Year’s holiday in 1997.
DeLay, his wife and daughter, and several aides, stayed for free at a beachfront resort. The DeLay trip to the South Pacific island, originally reported by a “20/20” investigation, was part of an effort by former aide Jack Abramoff to stop legislation aimed at cracking down on sweatshops and sex shops in the American territory, which is known as the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI).
