Reality Check: DeLay reportedly spent more than $400,000 on legal expenses in the first quarter of this year, and has another near-$1 million in still-unpaid lawyer bills. And that’s before the heavy-duty legal fees he’ll rack up after the Travis County conspiracy and money laundering case against him goes to trial.
Not to mention the Jack Abramoff investigation. Speaking of which, not only is that case likely, at best, to spawn more legal bills for DeLay, but the House ethics committee indicated that if DeLay hadn’t resigned, they would have investigated him over related allegations.
He can’t afford to campaign for Congress anymore.
