WASHINGTON - A Texas grand jury on Wednesday charged Rep. Tom DeLay and two political associates with conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme, forcing the House majority leader to temporarily relinquish his post.

5. It's a distraction!
Yep, they've allowed their most unpopular to be destroyed, a sacrifice for the republican party. He's certainly deserving of it, but lets hope he's not the last to fall.
