Shays says DeLay's a handful, calls the Majority Leader an "embarrassment" who won't survive through this term as head of the caucus.
"He is an absolute embarrassment to me and to the Republican Party," Rep. Christopher Shays (R) of Connecticut told a constituents at a townhall meeting in Greenwich on Saturday.
"Do I think Tom DeLay will be the majority leader by the end of this term? No," Shays went on to say. "I don't think Tom DeLay is going to survive."
Meanwhile, arch-bag-man Jack Abramoff, is telling friends, "Everyody is lying," according to a new piece out from Newsweek's Isikoff.
"Those S.O.B.s. DeLay knew everything. He knew all the details."
