Former House Majority Leader Tom Delay Now a Blogger
Posted on December 11, 2006The US News' Washington Whispers reports that Tom Delay has launched a blog. Tom Delay, the former House majority leader, resigned earlier this year after being indicted for criminal conspiracy.
Tom DeLay's back, this time on the Internet. Friends tell us that the powerful former House majority leader, dubbed the "Hammer" for his tough persuasion tactics, this week unveils TomDeLay.com, where he'll blog-DeLay's Daily-on newsy issues and build a coalition he's calling Grassroots, Action, and Information Network.In his welcome post Delay says his guest blogging experience at Red State helped him decide to become a blogger.
I have created this blog in order to provide Americans with a new meeting place where such opinions and viewpoints might be better shared, discussed, and debated; a place where conservative Americans might really speak truth to power and to one another.Raw Story reports that Delay's blog temporarily disabled comments but comments are back live on the blog now.
In all honesty, I did not fully realize the impact or potential of the blogosphere until very recently, when Red State gave me the opportunity to post some of my observations in the wake of the recent midterm elections. The response I received was overwhelming, and I would like to again thank the fine people at that site.
This experience brought me to the immediate realization that I needed to become more directly involved in the blogosphere. TomDeLay.com is the product of our latest effort to find new ways to connect, unite and organize conservatives from all over America into a real grassroots political force.
