Karma's a Bitch!

Looks like Republican Congressman Tom Delay's ethical lapses have finally caught up with him. The embattled Texan has just conceded his position of majority leader, clearing the way for a new house leadership vote. Delay's fellow republicans have been chattering about new leadership and the rank and file seem eager to shed the glare of Delay's ethical missteps. Delay was indicted late last year on campaign finance charges and the trial is moving forward. In a year from now, i doubt Delay will on Capital Hill, in fact he'll be lucky if he's not in jail.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news.

The aledged crimes Delay is being accused of were only made illegal after he had aledgedly committed them.

As for him leaving the leadership position, that is a Republican House rule. Do you think the Democrats have the same rule? I'll save you the trouble, no they do not.

The reason that rule is in place is simple. So the leadership is not used as an excuse by the opposition for some political ploy.
