Cartoon #249: DeLay is Done
Just before the late local news broadcasts of April 3, 2006, news broke that former Majority Leader Tom DeLay would not seek reelection. The following morning, DeLay announced his resignation from the United States House of Representatives. On September 28, 2005, a Travis County grand jury operating under Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle indicted DeLay for conspiring to violate Texas state election law stemming from issues dealing with his involvement in Texans for a Republican Majority.
