Morality leader resigns under indictment
Religious right leader Congressman Tom DeLay has resigned his seat. In fact last night the announcement that he was resigning appeared on one Texas TV station but was deleted very soon after. Now it's official.
DeLay, who was the leader of the Republicans in the House of Representatives, is under indictment. An aide to DeLay just pled guilty to partipating in the influence peddling scandal of Jack Abramoff.
DeLay, only a few days ago, appeared at a rally for religious fundamentalists claiming they are victims of campaigns by "liberals". DeLay insists he is only stepping down to prevent "liberals" from winning his district but he insists he would win the district as well. DeLay remains a darling of the "morality" Right.
