Transactions transferring donations that ended up going from Delay's RNC party fund in a roundabout way to Roy Blunt, his son, Matt, now governor of
Missouri, and DeLay's private charity should be investigated, according to Lawrence Noble, former chief government election enforcement
WASHINGTON - Tom DeLay deliberately raised more money than he needed to throw parties at the 2000 presidential convention, then diverted some of the
excess to longtime ally Roy Blunt — now occupying DeLay's former post as House Majority Leader — through a series of donations that benefited
both men’s causes.
When the financial carousel stopped, DeLay’s private charity, the consulting firm that employed DeLay’s wife and the Missouri campaign of
Blunt’s son all ended up with money, according to campaign documents reviewed by The Associated Press.

The plot thickens in the DeLay investigation. Now it has broadened as well to take in his replacement as speaker and the governor of Missouri.
Following this money trail could shed some light on how the fundraising and election business is really conducted in Washington. I hope the public
pays attention and learns a long overdue lesson about what our elected officials are doing with the powers we have granted them.
