Former House Leader

Weighs In on 'Dancing' Race

9/7/2006 1:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tom DeLayTom DeLay, the House Majority Leader who was forced to resign earlier this year, has decided to pitch in his two cents about one of America's tightest races. No, not a political race. We're talking about the new season of "Dancing With the Stars."

DeLay, a former Republican congressman from Texas, sent out a letter to his supporters urging them to watch -- and vote for -- country singer Sara Evans in the third season of the popular ABC show. "Sara Evans has been a strong supporter of the Republican Party and represents good American values in the media," DeLay wrote. "We have always been able to count on Sara for her support of the things we all believe in. Let's show Sara that same support."

But DeLay's comments weren't just limited to supporting Evans. No, DeLay also took the time to bash one of Evans' competitors. "One of her opponents on the show is ultra liberal talk show host Jerry Springer," DeLay wrote. "We need to send a message to Hollywood and the media that smut has no place on television by supporting good people like Sara Evans."

"Dancing With the Stars" premieres September 12.

I think that Tom Delay just insured that Sara will be voted off pretty fast.
Anyone that would support Delay is not someone most of us will vote for..
He should have done her a favor and kept his mouth shut...But then he's a very stupid man.

Tom DeLay is such a good example of "strong American values" himself. We should really take everything he says as gospel. What a great guy.

WTF?    

I will now make it a point not to vote/cheer for Sara Evans.

Tom DeLay is not the man you want in your corner, unless you're looking for a kickback of some kind or some pork on your plate.

He is a hypocrite.....he has skimmed money for years, disenfranchised voters, etc. and he is lecturing on American Morals.......what a piece of work.

This moron should be the last person to mention or recognize "good American values". Politics should not be involved in this at all so Mr. Lay, shut your trap. TMZ, I hope you'll send our comments to him and would you kindly send us pics of him in cuffs just like the ones you sent of Parisite?

GLAD TOM IS SPENDING MORE TIME WATCHING TELEVISION THAN TRYING TO BULLY OTHER CONGRESSMEN. "DA HAMMER" HAS BECOME "DA IMPOTENT MARSHMELLOW"

As a fan of Sara's, I will vote for her because I want to, not because a former Congressman tells me to.

Feel free to bash DeLay all you want, because if what all of you is saying is true, he deserves it; but please leave Sara alone, because she had nothing to do with this.

This man is pitiful. He can no longer bully or buy his way around Congress, so now he's trying to push his agenda on a reality show? I feel sorry for Miss Evans. Having a criminal back you publicly is probably the best way to lose. This competition is not to pick the best right-wing lackey, but to pick the best dancer. Maybe when Tommy-boy goes to jail he can bribe his way to "Bubba's Favorite Bedmate".

Who the f* cares what this guy thinks!?!?! Shouldn't he be more concerned with future indictments, than a reality TV show. What a douche!
