Capito Got Most DeLay Money

by Paul J. Nyden, Oct. 12, 2005 Charleston Gazette

A new study of campaign donations from former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, shows that Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., is at the very top of the list.

Americans for a Republican Majority (ARMPAC), DeLays national political action committee, has given $2,523,414 to Republican candidates and members of the House of Representatives and U.S. Senate since 1994

Capito has received $48,500, more than any other candidate, according to the study. She began receiving ARMPAC donations when she first ran for Congress in 2000.

DeLay has recently been indicted twice by a Texas grand jury on money-laundering and conspiracy charges. Those charges relate to his political action committee in Texas, called Texans for a Republican Majority.

Earlier this month, Capito said she has no immediate plans to return DeLays donations. Three other House Republicans did return DeLays donations after he was indicted.
