DeLay throws in the towel

Facing his growing legal troubles, and an almost certain loss in his re-election bid, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay will resign his seat in the coming months.

DeLay told Time Magazine that he won't seek re-election, and has scheduled a press conference to announce his decision on Tuesday.

As to why DeLay is resigning the seat prior to his successor taking office, Political Wire notes the reason is likely because the Republican lobbying scandal has reached his inner circle.

Hey, hey, hey...

It was interesting watching Ex Fed Chair Paul Volcker speaking at Proxmire's memorial service in the National Cathedral on C-SPAN when he said the late Senator was unflinching in battling corruption still so pervasive today.

Must be fate that this kingpin came down the same week.

Time to write your book, Tom.
