Indicted Republican likely to lead House Republicans
Via Buzzflash, the AP reports—
Supporters of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay proposed a Republican rules change Tuesday that would protect the Texan's leadership position if he were to be indicted by a Texas grand jury that already charged three of his associates.
Do these guys even know the meaning of "overreaching"?
A paragraph at the end of the article was worrying—
The Texas investigation is led by a Democrat, retiring Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle.
I didn't like that word "retiring." But after doing a little investigating myself it appears that Earle, who just won re-election, will not be retiring until after some felons are brought to justice.
