The AP story focuses on how bad this is for DeLay, who reported that one of his overseas junkets had been paid for by a front group although his office clearly knew that Abramoff had paid for it. (House members are forbidden to have their travel paid for by lobbyists.)
But the more important story may be how bad this is for Ralston, and indirectly for Rove. If Ralston knowingly conspired with DeLay’s staff to create false statements, she committed a felony. The prospect of prison time might refresh her memory about various misdeeds by her current boss, either around corruption and political fund-raising or around the Valerie Plame affair.
