This will hopefully by the only Dancing with the Stars entry on this blog, but the show has described its newest hoofer as “The former House majority leader is a prominent Republican and conservative firebrand. He was first elected to Congress in 1984, and when Republicans took control of the House, his colleagues elected him majority whip, and later majority leader. His leadership was characterized by his aggressive “grow the vote” method of party discipline in which he never lost a vote, leading the Washington Post to nickname him “The Hammer.” He and his wife, Christine, also served as foster parents and founded a community in Texas that serves as a safe, permanent home for abused and neglected children. DeLay is currently president of First Principles LLC, a strategic political consulting firm based in Washington, D.C., and Houston.” It does not mention that criminal investigation and unethical allegations that led to his departure from the House.
I am personally waiting to see his interpretation of the Swing (Voter), Fox(News)Trot, Line (Item) dance, Repubumba, and the Taxango. Of course, according to prosecutors, he is particularly adept at the Hustle.
