Cheney Speaks At DeLay Fundraiser Monday Night, Up To $4,200 A Plate…

Protesters bearing signs that read "The GOP is in an ethics free-fall" and chants of "Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Dick Cheney Has To Go," greeted Vice President Dick Cheney as he stopped in Houston on Monday to speak at a campaign fundraiser for embattled U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay.

Cheney spoke to more than 300 Republican supporters, many local political leaders, who paid anywhere from $500 to $4,200 to attend the private fundraiser. GOP heavy-hitters like Texas senators John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison, who were scheduled to attend, stayed in Washington, D.C., to attend the White House Christmas dinner.
