This is the best news that we've gotten in a while!

"House Majority Leader Tom Delay was indicted Wednesday by a Texas grand jury on a charge of conspiring to violate political fundraising laws, making him the highest-ranking member of Congress ever to face criminal indictment and forcing him to temporarily step aside from his GOP post."

Of course, DeLay says the charges are a "sham." [DallasNews]

""This morning, in an act of blatant political partisanship, a rogue district attorney in Travis County, Texas, named Ronnie Earle charged me with one count of criminal conspiracy, a reckless charge wholly unsupported by the facts." — DeLay." [Statements]

Ronnie Earle has prosecuted 15 politicians in Texas, 11 of the Democrats. I'd hardly call him a "rogue district attorney." It really is about time that the "Hammer" gets what has been coming to him for a long time. If convicted, he faces up to a $10,000 fine and two years in prison. Good riddance. There are good honest people on both sides of the aisle. Let's send a clear message that we the people will not tolerate this kind of corruption from the Republicans that are dominating the government.

Sign this petition to publicly call for DeLay's resignation from Congress. Also visit Dropthehammer.org.
