Will Feeney Finally Return Tom DeLays Money?
Representative Tom Feeney (FL-24) has taken $10,000 from indicted former Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay. Recent news reports show that the FBI investigation into DeLays connections to Abramoff is heating up, with a federal grand jury issuing subpoenas for payroll records and emails from DeLays office. Will Tom Feeney finally give up DeLays contributions or will this be the latest in a long line of questionable decisions by the ethically challenged Congressman?
If Tom Feeneys own FBI investigation into his relationship to Jack Abramoff wasnt enough, Feeney also refuses to return $10,000 from indicted former Congressman Tom DeLay, said Kyra Jennings, Southern Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Tom Feeney should come clean about his ties to Abramoff and should return DeLays money and the unethical contribution to his own legal fund.
