New Subpoena in DeLay Prosecution

Travis County DA Ronnie Earle is continuing to chase down Tom DeLay’s ties to Jack Abramoff.

Today he subpoenaed Jack Abramoff’s travel agent, the one who arranged the junket to Scotland in 2000. DeLay came along, and I think that it’s fair to say from the $6,617.20 ticket price that he flew first class. The ticket was charged to Jack Abramoff’s credit card. You can see his AmEx statement here.

Late Update: TPM Reader ME writes in to confirm that the “J3” code on the ticket refers to Continental’s “Business First.”
