Matt Angle is a one-man Capitol Hill clearinghouse for funding aimed at undoing the last redistricting in Texas -- a plan orchestrated by former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay that resulted in the ouster of several incumbent House Democrats.

Roll Call describes the fascinating, inbred and perfectly legal manipulation of millions of dollars in funds in and around the Texas Democratic Trust, a state political action committee, by Angle, the former chief of staff for former Rep. Martin Frost.
(Angle) can reach into the checkbook of an organization he runs and make a donation to another organization he runs, pay rent to himself as a landlord, hire himself as a consultant, and employ a handful of friends, party activists and longtime Frost allies. ...
Asked whether there is anything inappropriate about his Texas Democratic Trust having such a symbiotic relationship with other Democratic organizations and activists, Angle told Roll Call: “The Texas Democratic Trust has never said it was going to do anything else. The Texas Democratic Trust was formed to rebuild the Democratic infrastructure in Texas. ... It operates entirely within the law doing exactly what it set out to do.”
