FINALLY. THREE OF TOM DELAY’S AIDES HAVE BEEN INDICTED in the fundraising probe related to the mid-term redistricting in Texas.
Josh Marshall probably wrote more on this story — the legislators on the lam and Tom DeLay’s shady deals — than anyone. Just do a text search on his site to remind yourself of the details.
I don’t see how Tom DeLay could not be next in the indictment list. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
With DeLay’s inevitable fall, Congress may wake up to its responsibilites as a check on executive power. Let’s hope.
