Politically Speaking: King and DeLay chew over politics

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

It seems Iowa 5th District Congressman Steve King has kept up with his friend and philosophical kindred spirit, former Republican Congressman Tom DeLay, as the two had supper in D.C. this week. According to an account in Roll Call, the newspaper of Capitol Hill since 1955, "Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and Rep. Steve King had a juicy steak dinner at Sam and Harry's on Tuesday night (Nov.14), the evening before the one-time uber-lobbyist Jack Abramoff was due to begin serving his prison sentence for the Florida half of his corruption conviction. DeLay - whose demise, of course, is linked to the Abramoff corruption scandal - enjoyed a steak, according to sources in the restaurant. He and King chatted and whispered away at a cozy table against the wall. No word on who gave more gossip."
