John Carter is #6..

..in The Delay Rankings. Looks like a pretty cool site. Click on the Representative's name and you get more information.

Here is an article on the website and my favorite quotes from it:
Rep. John Carter (R) of Round Rock, who recently defended DeLay on 60 Minutes, ranks sixth in proximity to DeLay. He has received $20,000 in campaign contributions from DeLay's political actions committee ARMPAC and votes with the Majority Leader almost 99 percent of the time.

[and]

All five Republican members of the House Ethics Committee, which is slated to begin investigating DeLay, have received donations from ARMPAC. Committee member Lamar Smith of San Antonio, who has also given $10,000 to DeLay's legal defense fund, ranks No. 26 on The DeLay Rankings. He and fellow committee member Tom Cole (R-Okla.), who ranks No. 13, have both recused themselves from any investigation into DeLay's practices. Melissa Hart (R-Pa.), who was chosen to head the ethics investigation, ranks at No. 71 on the DeLay Index and has received $15,000 from ARMPAC.

[and]

"In America, you're not allowed to buy the jury," commented Donnelly. "Speaker Dennis Hastert ought to appoint a special counsel to lead the investigation in Tom DeLay's scandals."
