Non-Ethics Challenged Republicans Return DeLay's Money; Charlie Boustany Keeps His

In the wake of last week's indictment of Rep. Tom DeLay (who had to step down from his post as House Majority Leader) and in the face of other legal challenges for the former Texas bug exterminator, Republicans who still cling to their party's shattered image as a reform party are sending money DeLay and his PAC(s) gave their campaigns back. Or, as in the case of Missouri Republican Congressman Kenny Hulshof, given (nearly) the equivalent amount to charity.

Charlie Boustany has, thus far, kept the $15,000 that DeLay's Americans for a Republican Majority PAC gave his 2004 campaign.

No recipient's remorse in the Boustany camp — yet.
