Earle Wants DeLay Trip Info:


Texas prosecutor Ronnie Earle is seeking information on a trip Tom DeLay and Jack Abramoff took to London and Scotland in 2000. The Associated Press reports that “Earle wants DeLay’s wife and several associates who joined him on the trip to turn over travel itineraries, expense reimbursement requests and other documents.” Newspaper reports state that the trip was funded by Abramoff’s clients e-Lottery Inc. and the Mississippi Choctaw Tribe, who funneled their money into Abramoff’s non-profit the National Center for Public Policy Research which in turn used the money to pay for the trip.
