if you're worried about all the HAWTness leaving washington, don't be! House GOP Embraces Change in Membership Rules to Insulate DeLay Against Possible Indictment:
House Republicans approved a party rules change Wednesday that could allow Majority leader Tom DeLay to retain his leadership post if he is indicted by a Texas grand jury on state political corruption charges.

The current party rule in this area requires House Republican leaders and the heads of the various committees to relinquish their positions if indicted for a crime that could bring a prison term of at least two years. It makes no distinction between a federal and state indictment. Three of DeLay's political associates already have been indicted by that Texas grand jury.
i guess he's just... that... g00d@#$%
