TRMPAC Document of the Day

Today's document features another e-mail from John Colyandro, former executive director of TRMPAC and current executive director of the Texas Conservative Coalition Research Institute to TRMPAC corporate fundraiser Warren RoBold. The e-mail also went to Kevin Brannon, a local political consultant and Jim Ellis, director of Tom DeLay's Americans for a Republican Majority (ARMPAC) and DeLay's point man in Texas.

The e-mail concerns an attempt to get Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham to attend a TRMPAC event where energy industry executives would be asked to contribute to the PAC. It appears the meeting never occurred but in keeping with the tenor of the times, the U.S. House passed an energy bill last week that critics charge does little for energy independence or conservation and whole lot for industry. Hard to imagine how that happened...
