GOP Tosses Ethics Rule so DeLay Can Keep Post


By Edward Epstein / San Francisco Chronicle

Washington -- House Republicans adopted a rule change Wednesday that would allow their powerful majority leader, Rep. Tom DeLay of Texas, to keep his post if he is indicted on state corruption charges stemming from a fund-raising scandal that has already involved three of his associates.

Democrats led by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco -- who was unanimously re-elected to her post Wednesday -- assailed the Republican action as hypocritical and arrogant.

The Republicans made the change after debating it for hours in a closed- door session Wednesday morning. Members said several GOP lawmakers objected to the change.

The furor over DeLay's leadership came as both parties organized for the next session of Congress and tried to produce intelligence-reform legislation and vast spending bills during a brief lame-duck session that may stretch to the weekend.

The original rule was adopted by Republicans in 1993 when they were the minority party attacking the Democratic-controlled leadership as corrupt and arrogant. The rule required House GOP leaders to step aside if indicted for a crime that could bring a sentence of at least two years in state or federal prison.

The new rule, proposed by Rep. Henry Bonilla, R-Texas, empowers the House Republican Steering Committee to decide within 30 days of a felony indictment whether to recommend to the full membership whether an affected member would have to leave a leadership post.

Republicans charge that the Texas investigation, led by Ronnie Earle, a veteran Democratic prosecutor in Austin, is a political effort designed to embarrass DeLay. While there has been no indication that Earle plans to indict DeLay, who has been disciplined by the House Ethics Committee three times in recent years for ethical lapses, such a move wouldn't be a surprise either.

"This takes the power away from any partisan crackpot district attorney who may want to indict,'' Bonilla said after the vote preserving DeLay's post.

Democrats, recalling how Republicans used the ethics issue to help end four decades of Democratic House control in 1994, criticized the GOP move.

"It's just interesting that the first order of business following the election, on the part of the Republican majority, is to lower their ethical standards for their leaders in the Congress by saying that if indicted, you can serve,'' Pelosi told reporters after the Democrats in the House unanimously re-elected her and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland.

Rep. George Miller, D-Martinez, one of Pelosi's closest advisers, was re- elected head of the Democratic Policy Committee. Pelosi also asked Rep. Robert Matsui, D-Sacramento, to remain at the helm of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the House Democrats' fund-raising and candidate recruitment arm. But House aides said Matsui will delay a decision until after the Dec. 4 runoff races for two Louisiana House races.

If Matsui steps aside, one of the leading candidates to take over the committee is Rep. Mike Thompson, D-St. Helena.

Pelosi said House Democrats required the party's committee leaders to step aside if indicted. That rule will be expanded to cover the caucus' leaders, she said.


I had to cut half of the article cause it's mainly crap and talks about the democrats defeat in the last elections wich we already heard tons of times already. But they also talk about stiffening the rules on imigration.

Anyways the main focus here is that most of the republican party (thank god a few have decency) is planning to lower their code of ethic standards in order to Keep DeLay (if he gets re-elected) in office even if he is found guilty of the current charges he faces wich is incredible in my opinion. Republicans whined like hell back in 93 about the same thing and now as an act of hypocresy they want to bend their rules. My god this is disgusting.

BTW stay tuned for my thread about our newest piece of shit I mean Attourney General. Yes I resembled Gonzelez to shit so what. I'm hispanic too and I'm disgusted by that asshole.

That is nothing short of a shame.

it is a shame, to be sure.....however, what is failed to be mentioned in the article is the fact that the Republicans repealed something that the Democrats had never followed.....Democrats never would ratify it for their party......so now the two sides are equal.....

just a point, nothing more.....I'm saddened by the fact that they repealed it.....

I'm not particularly worried about moral superiority from a party that convinced the nation that banging your intern was standard procedure for all men. I also wouldn't worry about Delay's fund raising scandle when news of Kerry hanging on to 15 million in campaign funds just surfaced.
