WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Sunday that "there's a reasonable chance" House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) "may end up in jail."
"I don't think I'm prejudging him," Dean said on NBC's "Meet the Press" program. Referring to actions for which DeLay is under investigation, he said, "I think there's a reasonable chance that this may end up in jail."
The former Vermont governor made a similar statement two weeks ago
Dean's remarks Sunday prompted a derisive response.
"Leading a party with no ideas, no solutions, and no agenda, Howard Dean's latest antics . . . shows the sad state the Democrats have sunk to," said Dan Allen, DeLay's press secretary.
DeLay faces a new inquiry to determine whether he broke House rules concerning travel. He has not been charged with any crime.
