ABSTRACT
The article discusses a collaboration between United States Congressmen Tom DeLay and Roy Blunt. DeLay was forced to resign as House Majority Leader because of accusations that he illegally directed corporate donations to Texas candidates. Examples are given showing how Republicans have benefitted from Missouri Representative Blunt's Rely on Your Beliefs PAC (RoyB) and from DeLay's political action committee, Americans for a Republican Majority (ARMPAC). The Alexander Strategy Group is a lobbying business, founded in 1998, whose payroll has included political aide, James W. Ellis, and DeLay's wife, Christine.
