Tom Delay Indicted: Halleluja Holy Shit

Posted by Frankie at 9/28/2005 02:09:00 PM

The House Majority Leader, Republican Tom "The Hammer" Delay indicted today by a Texas grand jury. The charges could give Delay two years in state jail and $10,000 in fines. House ethics rules state that such charges require the speaker to step down. MSNBC has more:

WASHINGTON - A Texas grand jury on Wednesday charged Rep. Tom DeLay and two political associates with conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme, forcing the House majority leader to temporarily relinquish his post.

DeLay, 58, 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.

GOP congressional officials said Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., will recommend that Rep. David Dreier of California step into those duties. Some of the duties may go to the GOP whip, Rep. Roy Blunt of Missouri. The Republican rank and file may meet as early as Wednesday night to act on Hastert’s recommendation.

DeLay said in a statement:
"I have notified the speaker that I will temporarily step aside from my position as majority leader pursuant to rules of the House Republican Conference and the actions of the Travis County district attorney today."
The Smoking Gun has the documents.

I am so happy. This jerk redrew my district in Houston just short of my Congressman's house, so he wouldn't be able to run unless he moved.

I know, it is criminal to what they did in silencing minority voices so they cannot be represented in government.

I can't believe they actually did it. Of course, it is yet to be seen what the outcome is.

Tom Delay is a perfect example of why you should not support corporations that donate to conservatives. Take your money elsewhere.

Vote with your wallet.

Here is a list of corporations and there political affiliation.
