Tom "the Hammer" DeLay will retire from the Sugarland, Texas seat he has held in the United States House of Representatives since 1984. Details available later -- just saw the flash from the local CBS station.
A good decision, all things considered. DeLay's ethical scandal reeks and has tainted his colleagues in the Republican side of the House. Another scalp for the Left, but one they may well deserve to get considering his ethical lapses.
