“Today a reporter asked me my thoughts on Majority Leader Tom DeLay, as a result of the ethics complaint filed by a sour-grapes, lame-duck Texas Democrat freshman who lost his primary.
“This is what I have to say:
“Tom DeLay has been a tremendous leader not just for Republicans, but also for America. He made sure the partial birth abortion ban became law and fought to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. Thank God!
“He’s also done great things for Republicans, like helping us secure a majority in 1994 and maintain it ever since.
“No one works harder than Tom DeLay and these achievements are just a drop in the bucket. It is an honor to serve alongside my friend, Majority Leader Tom DeLay, and remind people why I support him 100%.”
