Give it back!

Now that Tom DeLay has been indicted twice by a Texas Grand Jury, we think it's high time for Sue to return the more than $12,000 she accepted from his Political Action Committee, ARMPAC. Sue, by the way, who claims to be a moderate, received the second largest contribution of New York's Congressional delegation. Only John Kuhl from NY's 29th CD received more money from DeLay. Perhaps that's why Sue has voted with DeLay so consistently -- more than 90 percent of the time over the past 18 months. There's also the fact that Sue initially voted to change the rules of the House -- rules that would allow an indicted leader like DeLay to keep their leadership position -- and then reversed course after Republicans realized that changing those rules didn't look so good after all.

Why not send Sue an email and tell her that the people in NY's 19th don't want her accepting money from an indicted felon? While you're at it, send another letter to the Poughkeepsie Journal, Times Herald-Record or Westchester's Journal-News and tell them you think the people of the 19th deserve better than this!

According to The Hill today:
3 Republicans have given back or donated their Delay payoffs to charity:

Republican Reps. Jeb Bradley (N.H.) and Heather Wilson (N.M.) gave back $15,000 and $10,000, respectively, according to the Associated Press. Meanwhile, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Rep. Kenny Hulshof (R-Mo.) wrote a $14,500 check to the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund to offset the amount DeLay’s PAC had given him.

Democrats around the US are calling for all funds to be returned. This morning on CSPAN's Roll Call, they said a group "We the People" have been calling Republican reps who have received Delay money to return it...
Some letters to the editor, Sue's constituents are asking the tough questions: . . . Did PAC influence Kelly's voting record?

Will Kelly return DeLay's money? . . .
And more questions for Sue: Sue Kelly must come forward
