DeLay indicted in campaign finance probe

House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and 2 associates have been indicted on conspiracy charges for a campaign finance probe. This should lead to the stepping down of Tom DeLay as the majority leader for the Republican Congress (update, the AP is now reporting that he will step down).

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.

The indictment against the second-ranking, and most
assertive Republican leader came on the final day of the grand jury's term. It
followed earlier indictments of a state political action committee founded by
DeLay and three of his political associates.

More later, right here on this blog: "Iceberg, Right Ahead!" an indictment of the Republican led government, starting to act like they're rearranging the chairs on the Titanic as it sinks. The violin player may have just started his last song...

This is a GREAT DAY for Democracy.
