Cracks in DeLay's Shield

According to CNN, the Republican House members held a closed door session where issues of ethics were discussed.

For the most part, several officials said the closed-door discussions did not touch on DeLay. Even so, the tenor of the comments suggested that some Republicans are eager to end the months-long deadlock over House ethics rules that was sparked by charges against the majority leader.

And that’s not all, CBS reports:

[I]n another sign of growing discord within the GOP, ten former Republican members of Congress said the changes made earlier this year to the House ethics rules were an "obvious action to protect Majority Leader Tom DeLay" from investigation.

In a letter to be presented to the House leadership on Friday, the former GOP lawmakers called for the changes to be reversed "to restore public confidence in the People's House.”

The People’s House. Not DeLay’s House. The time has definitely come for the Republican Party to end their shielding of the Majority Leader and force him to answer to the ethics committee.
