Lay Tommy Lay, Lay across ....

I really don't like cigarette smoking. But smoking guns, that's a different story:
The airfare to London and Scotland in 2000 for then-House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) was charged to an American Express card issued to Jack Abramoff, a Washington lobbyist at the center of a federal criminal and tax probe....
Multiple sources, including DeLay's then-chief of staff Susan Hirschmann, have confirmed that DeLay's congressional office was in direct contact with Preston Gates about the trip itinerary before DeLay's departure, to work out details of his travel. These contacts raise questions about DeLay's statement that he had no way of knowing about the financial and logistical support provided by Abramoff and his firm.
When will the Republicans understand that running this story out is doing nothing but shooting themselves in the foot. Of course, smile, I'm all in favor of foot shooting. Here, Tommy, here's an AK-47. Go for it.

This one is going to be very difficult to shrug off.
