The Hammer, Tom DeLay, to Write and Talk for TWT

Tom DeLay, the powerful former Majority Leader and reality TV star, will contribute a weekly column to The Washington Times and also serve as an on-air personality for TWT‘s new radio venture. From the press release announcing the hire:

Starting this week, DeLay will appear on a weekly on-demand radio show with Andy Parks, who separately hosts “Live from The Washington Times” on WRC 1260 AM on weekdays. DeLay’s 30-minute program will be streamed on the Kaliki-based, on-demand radio network that was recently established in partnership with the Times.

DeLay will elaborate the themes he develops on air into a weekly column.

DeLay, of course, was the all-powerful majority leader of the Republican caucus in the House during the Bush years, before resigning his leadership position after being indicted in a campaign finance scandal. He was convicted on charges of violating election laws, but was later acquitted due to insufficient evidence.
