In the wake of court rulings on the Terri Schiavo case, Rep DeLay said:
"The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior."Rep DeLay has since apologized for the remark. Critics claimed the statement bordered on vigilantism -- didn't sound like a "Law & Order" kind of attitude.
Rep DeLay's been having a bad run of luck lately: ethics investigations, a grand jury probe, and the treasurer of one of his Political Action Committees lost a $600,000 court case.
The timing led Dick Wolf, producer of "Law & Order" to say:
"I ... congratulate Congressman DeLay for switching the spotlight from his
own problems to an episode of a TV show."
Stay tuned for next week's exciting episode. (CNN)
