DeLay Indicted

According to Drudge, House Majority Leader Tom Delay was indicted today in Texas on charges of conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme. DeLay has indicated that he will step down temporarily from his leadership position. House Speaker Dennis Hastert has tapped Rep. David Dreier of California to fill the post.

This will certainly be a developing story.

UPDATE: Roy Blunt of Missouri will serve as interim Majority Leader and will share leadership duties with Dreier.
