House GOP May Change Leadership Rules to Protect DeLay

House Republicans were contemplating changing their rules in order to allow members indicted by state prosecutors to remain in a leadership post, a move designed to benefit Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) in case he is charged by a Texas grand jury that has indicted three of his political associates, GOP leaders said today.

In a related move, House Republicans are also considering officially moving their offical chamber to the James Allred Prison facility near Wichita Falls, Texas, in order to allow DeLay to continue in his post after his conviction.

(OK, that last part isn't true. Yet.)
