It’s not two left feet, but two fractured feet forcing Tom DeLay to hang up his dancing shoes.
The former House Republican Whip says he’s taking his doctor’s advice and leaving the ABC television show “Dancing With the Stars.”
Mr. DeLay has been diagnosed with stress fractures in both feet from the rigors of dancing and must wear foot braces when away from the ballroom.
Doctors and producers urged the 62-year-old to withdraw from the dance-off. But he was determined to continue Monday, performing a sufficient samba with professional partner Cheryl Burke.
On last month’s show, Mr. DeLay performed a cha-cha to the 1960s hit “Wild Thing,” garnering mixed reviews.
