DeLay Indicted!

-- by Dave Johnson

I'm breaking away from my "day job" to bring you the news that U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has been indicted for conspiracy and is leaving his leadership post (but not the Congress).

DeLay Is Indicted in Texas Campaign Finance Probe

A Texas grand jury on Wednesday charged Rep. Tom DeLay and two political associates with conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme, an indictment that likely will force him to step down as House majority leader.

"I have notified the speaker that I will temporarily step aside from my position as majority leader," Representative Tom DeLay said.

DeLay attorney Steve Brittain said 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.

Who is next? Abramoff is already indicted. Will it be Grover Norquist? Ralph Reed? Karl Rove? That's the group that controls the "conservative movement."
