The Dancing Criminal Congressman

Disgraced former GOP House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who resigned in 2006 in a cloud of criminal charges over campaign finance shenanigans, will be a contestant on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars. SRSLY.
Former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay will participate in the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars,” facing off against pop singer Aaron Carter, actress Melissa Joan Hart, and former Dallas Cowboy Michael Irvin. According to DeLay spokesperson Shannon Flaherty, “Anyone who’s seen him on the dance floor at convention parties or weddings knows he’s going to surprise a lot of people — and in a good way. This is going to be a fun campaign, and at least we know he’ll make it as far as Tucker Carlson.” (Carlson was the first contestant eliminated in the 2006 season.) DeLay has long been a “Dancing” fan. In 2006, he urged people to support country singer Sara Evans because she represented “good American values in the media.”
Maybe they could get Squeaky Fromme to be his partner. I hear she's free.
