    What about Capitol Hill officer Jacob Chestnut's family? DeLay promised to care for them after Officer Chestnut bravely gave his life defending the Capitol building from mad shooter Russell Weston in 1998.

    How's DeLay doing in holding that promise up, huh?

    Why isn't Tom Delay in prison? Oh that's right, he's a Republican. You know, the guys that tell us to do as they say, not as they do.

    This guy is a criminal, not a star. Class act, ABC.

    Wow, the far left liberal hate is very disappointing. I thought liberalism was supposed to be more accepting and tolerant. I'm finding that it's just the opposite. If you don't agree with them 100%, you are labeled and hated. It's a sad example of the Democratic party.
