So, How's Your IRA Doing?
Is it adding $1,000 a week? No? Well, then, we know your last name is not DeLay:
A registered lobbyist opened a retirement account in the late 1990s for the wife of then-House Whip Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) and contributed thousands of dollars to it while also paying her a salary to work for him from her home in Texas
The grand total, after 6 years: $490,000. Not too shabby for a work at home job - or for one illicit revenue stream among dozens. And this is just the kind of thing they didn't feel it was worthwhile to try to hide - after all, who'd investigate him?
