from the annals of the obvious

delay is likely to be found culpable - experts weigh potential defense - now that it's clear that his controversial private-paid trips abroad will be put under a microscope in congress, tom delay is in serious danger of being declared in violation of house ethics rules, legal experts say.

lawyers who specialize in ethics cases believe that the republican house majority leader from texas might be in technical breach of at least a few congressional regulations. according to published reports, a registered foreign agent paid for one of delay's overseas trips and a registered lobbyist used his credit card to pay for another foreign airfare -- actions the rules prohibit. delay may also have accepted gifts that exceeded congressional limits, taken an expense-paid trip overseas for longer than the rules allow and not disclosed all of the benefits he received.
“technical breach” is media speak for a republican’s violation of the direct letter of the law.
