Text of the ad follows in the extended entry:
Narrator: Tom DeLay. He'd like to wash his hands of corruption.
He'd like you to forget he's been accused of accepting a gift worth thousands from a foreign agent.
He'd like you to forget that two of his close associates have been indicted for money laundering.
Tom DeLay can't wash his hands of corruption by involving Congress in one family's personal tragedy.

But Congress can certainly wash its hands of Tom DeLay.
