DeLay Appears To Be Off The Hook
DeLay Appears To Be Off The Hook (CBS News)
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, appears to have dodged a bullet. The powerful GOP chieftain is unlikely to be indicted by a state grand jury probing alleged campaign finance violations in Texas, according to an official involved in the investigation. “No, no, I really donÃ¢€™t think DeLay will be indicted,” the official told CBSNews.com. “And to be quite honest, [DeLayÃ¢€™s] lawyers know that.”
So, the Republicans embarrased themselves for nothing in their cynical move to repeal the rule that they themselves had insisted upon precluding House leaders under indictment from serving.
