DeLay must step down by House rules, likely relaced for the moment by Dave Dreier. This is about Texans For A Republican Majority's PAC. The rest of his sleazebag history is still out there.
The political implications of this are huge. And the idea that Abramoff is the tip of the iceberg just got some major public reinforcement. This is a party that doesn't play by the rules. In fact, they rewrite the rules to suit themselves.
Life just changed on Capitol Hill. And methinks, for the better. Any spin that suggests that DeLay's removal doesn't matter is just blowing smoke.
This is an open thread.
