Has Hot Tub Tom Over-Reached?

Tom DeLay, or "hot tub Tom" to those who knew him before he "found" his religion and the massive power he wields, thought that by using the massive corporate donations he raised for his own PAC, he could divvy out the bucks ($1.7 million to 22 different congressmen campaigns, nabbing 17 election victories and tilting the house irrevocably Republican). Woops - that's illegal. Thus the ethics violation. As he steamrolled forward in the power grab and pushed the Texas house to redistrict, favoring Republicans across the board, he forgot about one person.

Himself.

Tom really wanted some of that space money. Part of the new NASA package he's pushed through endlessly and finally got passed. I'm all for the space program, but Tom wants all that Federal NASA money and the control of it, and the power it will give him.

One problem. To get it, and carve into the district that gave it to him, he was one of the few Republicans who had to increase his democratic base.

Hubris put him there, assured himself he'd never get caught, or voted out of power.

Well, he over-reached on the first, let's see what happens on the second.
