Youâ€™ve likely heard by now that a Texas grand jury has indicted Rep Tom DeLay, R-Texas, for a campaign finance scheme, and that DeLay has temporarily stepped down has House majority leader. Iâ€™m leery of the GOP response that the indictment is “prosecutorial retribution by a partisan Democrat.” DeLay can be ethically challenged, and was cited three times last year by the House ethics committee. But DeLay is savvy and, no doubt, has good attorneys advising him of how far he can go before crossing the legal line. So Iâ€™ll be surprised if The Hammer gets nailed on this.
