TDP: Soechting hails PAC ruling
May 26, 2005 512-478-3998
STATEMENT BY TX DEMOCRATIC CHAIR CHARLES SOECHTING
"Judge Hart's landmark decision that TRMPAC failed to report $532,000 in
corporate contributions makes two things very clear: there was an
illegal conspiracy in 2002 to break Texas law, and Tom DeLay and Tom
Craddick were at the center of that conspiracy.
"Everything since then -- the takeover of state government by extremist
politicians paid for by corporate interests, the unprecedented
mid-decade redistricting to give the GOP seats it couldn't win at the
ballot box, the failure of Texas Republicans to address the state's most
pressing public policy challenges -- flows from the illegal conspiracy
directed by Tom DeLay and Tom Craddick.
"Bankrupt public schools? Eligible children stripped of their health
insurance? Soaring college tuition rates? No ethics reform? The
highest homeowners' insurance rates in the nation? Blame it on the
illegal conspiracy directed by Tom DeLay and Tom Craddick."
