GOP to Reverse Ethics Rule Blocking New DeLay Probe

"House Republican leaders, acknowledging that ethics disputes are taking a heavy toll on the party's image, decided yesterday to rescind a controversial rule change that led to the three-month shutdown of the ethics committee, according to officials who participated in the talks.

Republicans touched off a political uproar in January by changing a rule that had required the ethics committee to continue considering a complaint against a House member if there was a deadlock between the committee's five Republicans and five Democrats. The January change reversed this, calling for automatic dismissal of an ethics complaint when a deadlock occurs."

Now that Republican House leaders have come to their senses, hopefully we can now have an honest and thorough investigation into the corrupt House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.
