Will Jim Nussle stop taking money from Tom DeLay now that he's been indicted?

Today, I think it is time for all Iowans to ask Republican gubernatorial candidate Jim Nussle a very important question: Now that House Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX-22) has been indicted and stepped down from his leadership position, will you promise to no longer accept contributions from him or his PAC, Americans for a Republican Majority (ARMPAC)?

According to FEC disclosure reports, in his 2004 re-election bid to Congress, Nussle accepted $10,000 from ARMPAC, the most closely aligned national PAC to Tom DeLay. In 202, Nussle received $5,000 from ARMPAC.

In the last three years, thats $15,000 from Tom DeLay, quite possibly the most crooked Republican serving in the United States House of Representatives.

Nussle has also served DeLay's ethical lapses over the past decade in Congress and never publicly challenged him to clean up his act.

Iowan's don't need a surplus-wasting, budget-mismanaging politician for Governor. Iowans deserve a Democrat who will be honest and straightforward, a leader who isn't shrouded in ethical and criminal investigations.

So, Congressman Nussle, will you face our challenge and clear yourself from any connections to Tom DeLay?

Or will you just continue to be another Washington Republican?

I am so happy. It's about time. This jerk redrew my district in Houston just short of my Congressman's house, so he wouldn't be able to run unless he moved.

Why should ANY office holder refuse contributions from another elected official who has yet to be convicted of ANYTHING (a little American tradition called "innocent til proven guilty"). Also did Dem's quit taking $$$ from Clinton's funds after he was served with articles of impeachment? No (nor should they have).
