Hastings and the DeLay Rule
Doc has chosen not to make public his voice vote on the DeLay Rule. He intends to inform his constituents about his decision in a letter to them. The DeLay Rule vote rescinded a House rule that required any committee chairman who was under indictment to step down from his chairmanships. Tom DeLay of Texas is threatened with an indictment by a grand jury over corporate campaign contributions.
