A Day of Days: Delay Indicted!
A Texas grand jury on Wednesday 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. (Can I get a round of applause!)
Chris Bell, a former Democratic congressman from Texas, who was ousted in a DeLay-engineered redistricting after filing an ethics complaint against the Republican leader, said in an article on rawstory.com “At some point Mr DeLay needs to look in the mirror to see who’s responsible for his hardships. They say that he’s been such a powerful member and a powerful conservative. Mr DeLay conducts his business in a highly questionable fashion and that’s why I think he’s the most corrupt politician in America today.”
