Back in 1993, in an effort to put the old squeeze on a few Dems in hot water, the GOP adopted something known as the indictment rule. The idea was to force those who had been indicted by a grand jury from their leadership posts.
That was then. Tom Delay is the one who is indicted now.
So guess what? The Republicans want to change the rule.
Of course, this behavior doesn’t fall within our current understanding of what constitutes a moral value. So they’ll get away with it.
Be the frame.
