DeLay Indicted in Campaign Finance Probe
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus:
A Texas grand jury on Wednesday charged Rep. Tom DeLay and two political associates with conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme, an indictment that could force him to step down as House majority leader. For those unfamiliar with the investigation, let me give you the short version: It's pretty frickin' undeniable that Delay's PAC illegally funneled money into a handful of races in Texas. TRMPAC wasn't exactly subtle, because Delay didn't think anyone in Texas would indict him -- after all, the GOP owns pretty much all of Texas.
Just, as it turns out, not quite enough of Texas to so blatantly violate the law.
What's most interesting is that this is most likely to echo through state politics, rather than national ones. Between Perry's recent screwups, the general disgust with the Leg's inability to deal with the school finance problems, and now some very widespread corruption --- it's not the Texas GOP's best year.
