TRMPAC Document of the Day

Our final document on the TRMPAC effort to use U.S. Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham to raise money from energy companies for Tom DeLay's effort to capture the Texas Legislature speaks to the TRMPAC role of the man who would be Speaker of the Texas House, Rep. Tom Craddick (R-Midland). (The meeting with Abraham appears never to have happened). When this scandal first started to gain momentum, Craddick's spokesman at the time Bob Richter denied that his boss had very much do with TRMPAC. Subsequent documents have told a different story. This is one of them.
