The Head Skunk Is Leaving The Leadership

Tom DeLay has decided to relinquishes his house leadership position.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay, now under indictment in Texas and tainted by a corruption scandal, told fellow House of Representatives Republicans on Saturday that he will not try to reclaim his job as majority leader.

"Today I have asked Speaker (Dennis) Hastert to convene our conference for the purpose of electing a new majority leader," DeLay, a close ally of President George W. Bush and one of the most powerful conservatives in Congress, said in a letter to House Republican leaders.

It appears that the efforts of some of the lesser skunks in the house could no longer stand the stench of DeLay were the last straw for Tom.

Now it is up to the voters to depose the rest.
