DELAY TO STEP DOWN?….Could it be? From Roll Call (subscription only):
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) has begun quiet discussions with a handful of colleagues about the possibility that he will have to step down from his leadership post temporarily if he is indicted by a Texas grand jury investigating alleged campaign finance abuses.
…Republican Conference rules state that a member of the elected leadership who has been indicted on a felony carrying a penalty of at least two years in prison must temporarily step down from the post.
I actually like George Bush compared to Tom DeLay. Few things would make me happier than to see the former bug exterminator get squashed himself.
Please, please, please make this happen. Ple-e-e-e-ease!
