Indicted

Tom Delay has been indicted and has stepped down from his Majority leader position. Dennis Hasterst has picked David Dreier of California to replace him. The only thing I’ve ever heard about Dreier is that he’s been the target of an outing campaign. The article I link notes:

Dreier can probably survive outing in his district and be re-elected, and it won’t hurt him much with Arnold and his cronies either. But Dreier’s days as a key member of the ultra-homophobic Hastert-DeLay House GOP leadership may be numbered.

Yep. Numbered.
