Rep. Tancredo: "I don't think we should try to oust him"

Rep. Tom Tancredo Republican from Colorado on Rep Tom Delay ethics allegations.

Washington - Rep. Tom Tancredo says it is "probably not the worst idea" for embattled House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to step down while he deals with ethics allegations.
Stepping into a swirling Washington controversy, the Littleton Republican said he doesn't think the current accusations of impropriety against DeLay amount to much. But Tancredo said that from a political perspective, DeLay has handled the ethics issue "stupidly."
Should the House Republicans oust Tom Delay, Rep. Tancredo?

"I don't think we should try to oust him," he said in an interview Thursday at the Capitol. "Right now, I would not encourage him to leave. If he chose to resign as majority leader until these matters are resolved, that's probably not the worst idea."
How is Tom Delay and Tom Tancredo connected?

Tom Tancredo has taken $28,439 from Tom DeLay's ARMPAC. No surprise that Tancredo voted with Tom DeLay 90% of the time between Jan. 1 2004 and March 31 2005.
Is this the kind of government-for-hire that working families deserve?

Tom Tancredo voted to weaken the ethics rules in a move that many say served only to protect Tom DeLay.

Does the integrity of the House mean so little that Tom Tancredo would sacrifice it to defend Tom DeLay?

When Democrats offered a solution to clean up the House by strengthening ethics rules, Tom Tancredo voted to make sure it never even came to an up or down vote.

So instead of a bipartisan effort to get government working for Americans, Tom Tancredo stood for cronyism and partisan politics.

Tom Tancredo voted to allow DeLay to continue serving as Leader even if he is indicted.

Is Tom DeLay's behavior the kind of leadership that should be REWARDED, not punished?

Tom DeLay has been admonished three times for his unethical behavior, yet Tom Tancredo gave DeLay's legal fund $1,000 to help defend him.

Isn't that the definition of cronyism?

The media will try to portray Tom Tancredo as a conservative critic of Tom Delay, but Tom Tancredo does not want to oust Tom Delay. Tom Tancredo benefited from un-ethical Tom Delay.
