Mark Kennedy should join Jeb Bradley in returning DeLay's monies

Tom Delay may have used a loophole within the letter of law, but it is unquestionable that he disregarded the spirit of the law. The Texas Campaign Finance Law was to minimize the influence of out-of-state contributions by companies.
The influence of outside contributors has been a source of complaint by those who do not receive the contributions -- Minnesotans will recall the complaints that Paul Wellstone received monies from Hollywood.
Mark Kennedy received $10,000 in 2004 from DeLay's PAC Americans For A Republican Majority.
Since his campaign ended with a surplus of $66,218 shouldn't that money be returned to DeLay ?
The Manchester Union Leader reports that Rep. Jeb Bradley (R-NH) will return $15,000 he has received from Tom DeLay's PAC. Other politicians, such as Iowa's Jim Nussle are being encouraged to return their contribution.
The Mankato Free Press Editorial Staff decried the Republican Party for its ethical lapes in the following hyperlink.
