Did you miss him? Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, who resigned from Congress amid a swirl of scandals in 2006, returned to the Capitol just hours after a Texas court overturned his money-laundering conviction, celebrating with his former colleagues and even paying a visit to the House floor during a series of votes. “I just thank the Lord for carrying me through all of this,” DeLay told reporters. “It really drove my detractors crazy because I had the joy of Jesus in me, and they didn’t understand it.”
