In an April 18 letter, Bobby R. Burchfield, outside counsel to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.), wrote that his client "toured a Russian space center because his congressional district includes NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston."
This is misleading. Mr. DeLay toured Russia in 1997. The Johnson Space Center did not become part of his district until the redistricting that preceded the 2004 election.
