Delay Steps Down

Delay Steps Down

Finally, some action on DeLay. Can we look toward getting Ralph Reed off the ticket as Lt. Gov in Georgia?

House Majority Leader Tom DeLay says he will temporarily step down from his post following today’s indictment.

A Texas grand jury today charged Rep. Tom DeLay and two political associates with conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme, an indictment that could force him to step down as House majority leader. His attorney says DeLay was accused of a criminal conspiracy along with two associates, John Colyandro, former executive director of a Texas political action committee formed by DeLay, and Jim Ellis, who heads DeLay’s national political committee.

Beyond Delay (CREW) lists the 13 others under him in a list of the “13 Most Corrupt Members of Congress.” Their report documents the “egregious, unethical and possibly illegal activities of the most tainted Members of Congress.” Obviously he’s the headliner. Yes, there are Democrats (2) on the list.

Regardless of the final outcome of the Texas case, DeLay has

bribed and strong-armed members of Congress for votes
illegally used tax dollars to elect his cronies
been found guilty of three House ethics violations
fired the House Ethics Committee chairman who stood up to him
