It Got Indicted (Finally!)
Better late than never. Maybe we’re finally gonna get that repulsive grease stain out of the House of Representatives. Out Damn Spot!
The Hammeroid was indicted yesterday on charges of conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme. As required by House regulations, El Exterminato will have to step down temporarily from his position as Majority Leader. In November 2004, DeLay’s fellow Republicans repealed that House regulation in the ninth inning, in case DeLay got indicted. Two months later they were shamed and embarrassed into reinstating the rule.
In early 2005, Republicans changed the rules of the House Ethics Committee, making it harder to conduct an ethics investigation. Maybe they were anticipating an investigation of someone like, oh, Tom DeLay.
DeLay is claiming his indictment is nothing but a witch hunt by evil Leftists. Well, that explains it. The foreman of the Grand Jury is a 76-year-old retired sheriff’s deputy. You just can’t get any further to the Left than that.
DeLay called the prosecutor a “partisan fanatic.” He said “I have done nothing wrong ... I am innocent.” He said the charges amounted to “one of the weakest and most baseless indictments in American history.”
If you’re sick and tired of having this sleaze bucket on the public payroll, please sign this petition to Clean Up Congress Without DeLay. This petition demands that DeLay resign from the House of Representatives. If this human blight is the best leader the Republicans can find, they’re in deeper trouble than they know.
DeLay is the first House leader to be indicted while in office in at least a hundred years. He’ll be replaced by Roy Blunt, R-Missouri.
