The Associated Press just put a story on the wire about American Airlines, Verizon and Nissan pledging to stop financing Tom DeLay’s legal defense fund in response to the Drop the Hammer campaign. It features a nice response by Tom DeLay himself:
You really think a lobbyist group like that is going to have an effect on me and what I am trying to accomplish here?
A “lobbyist group” like us? Of course not. We know DeLay changes his behavior only for a very different kind of “lobbyist group.”
