Darth bedding down with crook DeLay
It’s hush-hush, but Cheney’s coming to stump for DeLay. No shame…birds of a feather…
Vice President Dick Cheney is scheduled to appear at a campaign event for House Majority Leader Tom DeLay at a Houston hotel in mid-September. A spokeswoman for Cheney said that security concerns precluded his office from releasing the vice president’s schedule more than a few days in advance.
“We are not making any announcements about events in mid-September,” the spokeswoman said.
DeLay’s office also would not comment.
However, the time and date of the event, 5-7 p.m. on Sept. 16, and location, the Westin Galleria Hotel, were posted on a Clear Lake GOP online bulletin board and some invitations already have been sent out.
“It is just a fundraiser to show that Mr. DeLay has got the support of the administration,” she said. The White House has offered cordial words for DeLay over the past several months despite questions about whether lobbyists paid for some of DeLay’s overseas travel, a violation of House rules.
In late April during a Social Security forum in Galveston, Bush said: “I appreciate the leadership of Congressman Tom DeLay in working on important issues that matter to the country.” DeLay rode back to Washington with Bush on Air Force One.
