Footing the Bill

Bill Ceverha: Apparently, you don't need a fancy bridge to get from Tom DeLay to the Trinity River Project.

You know what I love about the Friends of Unfair Park? Sometimes, they remind us of things we need to be reminded of. Like, oh, the fact this Bill Ceverha is the same as this Bill Ceverha. Dunno about you, Jim, but there is something terribly appropriate about all this.

I mean, c'mon. The Trinity River Project, which Bill Ceverha pushed and pulled for almost a decade ago, is long-delayed. And Bill Ceverha was the law-breaking treasurer of Tom DeLay's Texans for a Republican Majority PAC -- you remember, the one that spent more than half a million in corporate-donated dough getting Republicans elected to the Texas House of Representatives? The one that put Tom DeLay on the unemployment line? Get it? Delay? DeLay? Hawr, hawr. Fuckin' love this job. --Robert Wilonsky
