On second thought, make that $15,000 short

Sure, Jeb voted to reinstate the House ethics committee rules that his mentor, Tom DeLay, chucked onto the scrap heap a while back. But he only did so after he received permission from the big boys. If Jeb wants to show he's serious about cleaning up the corruption on Capitol Hill, I have a better idea. Get rid of the $15,000 in campaign cash he received from Tom DeLay.

Now, normally you hear people being told to "return the money". Frankly, I don't want to see this. All that does is give DeLay $15,000 to shower on some other worthy crony.

My challenge to Jeb is this: if you are serious about standing up to Tom DeLay's culture of corruption and complacency, then give the $15,000 to a worthy New Hampshire charity.

Whadda ya say, Jeb?

And, uh, make sure it's a charity that spends most of its money on the causes it claims to support, instead of on hosting more flashy fundraisers and sending people golfing, m'kay? Not like you-know-who's pet charity.
