October 6, 2004: DeLay Draws Third Rebuke (washingtonpost.com)

  • Melanie Sloan, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington said last night: “The fact that Mr. DeLay has now been admonished an unprecedented three times in under a week — in addition to the admonishment issued against him a few years ago — clearly shows that he believes himself to be above the law. Members of the congressional leadership should be above reproach. If the Republican Conference wants the American people to believe that it takes ethics seriously, it must insist that Mr. DeLay resign his post as majority leader.”
