More news on the DeLay Rule.

It turns out that all three Republican members of congress from Connecticut (Rob Simmons, Christopher Shays and Nancy Johnson) are members of the Shays Handful, according to this article in the Hartford Courant.

But neighboring New York seems like a different story. TPM readers have been told that Rep. Sherwoood Boehlert has a policy of only discussing his position on the DeLay Rule in letters to constituents. Rep. Sue Kelly and James Walsh are keeping mum. And Rep. John McHugh seems to be a letter writer as well.

Let us know if you’ve heard from your New York Republican rep. We’re hoping at least one of them is in the Shays Handful.

Late Update: After several refusals to answer to TPM Readers, a staffer for Virginia’s Tom Davis is now putting him in Shays Handful. We’ll wait for more definitive word about Davis.
