DeLay Desperate For Friends

Washington Post, 4/13/05:

House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) implored Republican senators yesterday to stick with him…The attendees said DeLay thanked Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) for supportive comments on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.

ABC News, 4/10/05:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Do you think that this is just attacks on him [Tom DeLay] or attacks on the conservative movement, or are there serious issues here that he has to address?

SANTORUM: …If those things were not out there, obviously they wouldn’t be raising them. And so there are issues that he has to deal with personally…I think he has to come forward and lay out what he did and why he did it and let the people then judge for themselves.
