DeLay’s staff disclosed that he flew to Houston on Thursday morning on a corporate jet owned by R.J. Reynolds, a longtime contributor that has flown him to Puerto Rico and other destinations; they said the jet was “used in compliance with regulations.” The company, which has also given $17,000 to DeLay’s legal defense fund, did not comment Friday.

We do the right thing. […] The company takes great pride in the principled, responsible and lawful manner in which we conduct ourselves and our business.
