In case anyone failed to realize the links between lobbyist Jack Abramoff's fraud and bribery charges and the looming criminal trial of House leader Tom Delay, the AP is reporting
that Ronnie Earl, the Texas prosecutor prosecuting the Delay case, has subpoenaed Abramoff records relating to Delay today -- the same day that Abramoff pled guilty and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors. Coincidence? I think not.
As I said before
, Abramoff is a loose thread that will unknit a lot of sweaters, and I'm betting Delay is one of those hoping they keep the thermostat up in his jail cell, 'cause he won't have a lot of cover in the months to come.
