Next Monday, we’ll be launching a new website, with a new blog. Because DeLay-ism is so ingrained in the big money culture of Washington, we’ve come to decide that the Daily DeLay’s reporting, commentary, analysis, and community should take this bigger view, too.
In fact, we’ve been doing just that over the last six months. We want to clearly identify and consistently promote opportunities to address the corruption DeLay brought upon our nation’s capitol, and weave together the stories from other breaking and emerging scandals.
So, come next Monday, March 13th, what we would nornally be posting at the Daily DeLay will be posted at Public Campaign Action Fund’s new website. We will be "tagging" these posts so that those of you who only want to get the latest news on Tom DeLay can easily access just that. But we also want you to have an opportunity to weigh in on the new design, new tools, and broader focus, so poke around a bunch.
Our next post on Monday morning will provide you with the new URL for the broader new blog.
Please be assured that the passion to hold DeLay accountable, and the laser-like focus on DeLay’s big money, unethical agenda will continue unabated. I said this in 2004 when we first took on the powerful then-Majority Leader in his home district, at a time when no one else thought he was vulnerable, and I'll say it again today:
If we don’t fight to hold Tom DeLay accountable, then why do we exist?
But I also think that the politicians and special interests who engage in the legal corruption that happens everyday in the corridors of power in Washington and state capitals around the country need to be held accountable, too.
The new blog at the new site will tell this story and give citizens a chance to engage in a debate, offer ideas, learn more about their own elected officials, and take action. The power of many people acting together to take on big money is the only way to change it. DeLay is the brashest symbol of the problem, but the focus has to be on DeLay-ism...
So keep coming back, and when the new site is up, let us know what you think. Thanks!
