Josh points us to the WaPo article that tells us that Tom Delay basically hung around to get MO money for his Legal fees:
An additional impetus for putting off the resignation until now was suggested by John Feehery, a former aide to DeLay and House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.). "He needed to raise money for the defense fund. That was the bottom line," Feehery said. "He wanted to make sure he could take care of himself in the court of law." Under federal campaign rules, any reelection money a lawmaker raises can be used to pay legal fees stemming from official duties.

Interestingly enough, lots of Englewood, NJ residents. Note to self, don't live in Englewood.
