Chuck Muth had this item in yesterday's "D.C. Confidential" Newsletter:
"WON'T TAKE "YES" FOR AN ANSWER
Congressman Tom DeLay and House Republicans offered to open an ethics investigation into allegations made against the House Majority Leader yesterday, but the offer was rejected by Democrats, for two reasons: (1) An investigation would clear DeLay and (2) an actual investigation will remove the partisan and fundraising advantages Democrats presently enjoy by being able to beat up on DeLay. Cynical Washington politics at its finest."
Relayed without comment. (If I started, I'd never stop...)
