Breaking: Delay Indicted!
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 11:48 AM by npincus
http://www.breitbart.com/news/2005/09/28/D8CTCG7OC.html

CNN just announced Delay indicted on one count of criminal conspiracy!



**Added on edit: Delay's defense lawyer says "Indictment stinks like a skunk on the road".

Republican conference must vote on whether Delay must step down as majority leader. No House rule exists that requires members of Congress to step down from their congressional posts.

40. I'm still a skeptic.
Not enough repukes have been incinerated by bolts of lightning. I'll make you a bet thought:

If at the next big RNC, God drops a tornado, or pillar of fire on these fascist warmongerers; I'll go off to become a Monk, living a life of abstinence, taking a vow of silence.

21. CNN just announced that it is all political.
The rule about having to step down if indicted doesn't really count because it is a REPUBLICAN rule not a House rule.

26. I believe you are wrong about stepping down see below
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050928/ap_on_go_co/delay_i...

"House Republican Party rules require leaders who are indicted to temporarily step aside from their leadership posts."

The key word is "temporarily," of course, but I believe he has to step down if officially indicted.

The bad news is, the penalty for one count is minimal.

27. Remember the Repugs got rid of that rule, but then had to
put it back.

35. Let this be the first of many to bite the dust.
They should serve hard time for hurting so many people.
Delay should also be charged with inciting a riot to interrupt the peaceful Florida recount in 2000. Remember all his aides banging on the windows? Gee, did the taxpayers pay for that?
