Tom DeLay has been indicted.
Representative Tom DeLay (R-Texas) has been indicted on two counts of conspiracy. Apparently he's been taking bribes from companies in violation of Texas laws which outlaw corporate contributions. DeLay took a bribe from Sears Roebuck. Apparently he wanted to get his catalogue mailed out a little earlier this year.
DeLay says he'll be temporarily stepping aside. Good to hear, but that's not long enough. If Congress were actually interested in, y'know, investigating crimes and like that, my heart might soar. But as it is, it makes me glow a little bit inside to hear that he's got a little bit of snake egg on his face.
We've got to have faith that DeLay will one day get nailed. While there's a Republican Congress and a Republican White House, his corruption will remain unchecked, but one day the law could catch up with him. Remember: they caught Boss Tweed, too.
