He served in the Texas House of Representatives where alcoholism and adultery were a couple of the demons he battled until becoming "born again". Tom was later elected to Congress and served on several different committees and held several position during his years of service. Scandals and controversies have followed him closely throughout his career.

Tom is married to Christine (nee Furrh) and they have one daughter, Danielle, born in 1972. He and partner Cheryl Burke dropped out of Season 9 of DWTS after Week 3, due to his stress fractures in both feet.

greenknees Do Politicians Make Good "Stars" for Dancing? 0 Oct 2 2009, 7:49 AM EDT by greenknees

Just putting out my observation that TDelay ought be the VERY LAST politician invited on to DWTS. Why? Because they come with a built-in voter base that reflects the very same public tensions that we come to Dancing to forget. The voting then becomes totally gerryrigged and a dishonorable old Fudd will last longer than someone who is charming -- perhaps Michael L, perhaps dorky Chuck L, likely one of the women.

GET SERIOUS Conrad Green! Take your sensationalism elsewhere and get back to the basics of Dancing!!!
