Mark Your Calendar
Somehow I doubt that this will be the last we see of "The Exterminator":
Rep. Tom DeLay, the former majority leader whose career was undermined by scandal, said he would resign from the House on June 9. "As you are aware," the Texas Republican wrote House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.), "I have recently made the decision to pursue new opportunities to engage in the important cultural and political battles of our day from an arena outside of the U.S. House of Representatives."
Provided DeLay stays out of prison (no sure thing), he will be ideally situated to become the city's top lobbyist when the cooling off period ends.
