Public Campaign Action Fund is now Every Voice. Check out our new website: EveryVoice.org

Public Citizen's press release reports DeLay's legal defense fund at $999,221 since it was founded in 2000. If only he hadn't had to return those donations from lobbyists earlier in the year he would have crossed a million bucks.

A closer look at the numbers shows a quickening pace. Public Citizen reports that DeLay's fund raised $439,550 in 2004, 44% of the total its raised since 2000.
