    DeLay Indicted...

    Stardate 4623.4

    Washington - 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.

    House GOP rules require any member of the elected leadership to step down temporarily if indicted...

    “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,” Mr. DeLay said.

    This is something that he had tried to change some time ago in the House, where they would not have to step down if indicted, but this was quickly overturned.
