Just in case there was any doubt

We now know where Congresswoman Hart stands on DeLay's indictment.

From the Beaver County Times:

U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay's indictment on conspiracy charges in his home state of Texas should not be politicized in any way, U.S. Rep. Melissa Hart said Thursday.

"We should step aside and allow this process to go forward," said Hart, R-4, Bradford Woods.

Hart said that DeLay's case is now a matter before Texas courts and that "D.C. politicians" should stay out of it. DeLay and two political associates were indicted by a grand jury on Wednesday for allegedly circumventing fund-raising laws involving corporate donations in 2002.


In their Thursday editions, the New York Times and Washington Post both ran articles detailing how DeLay's criminal case is just the latest setback for the GOP, which has been pummeled in recent weeks by President Bush's falling poll numbers, continuing bloodshed in Iraq, and near universal criticism of the Bush administration's response to Hurricane Katrina.

Also, Sen. Bill Frist, R-Tenn., is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission for some stock deals involving a blind trust.

"This is just an issue of Tom DeLay," said Hart. "That having been said, it's not good that our majority leader has had to step aside."

Hart went on to describe her party's response to DeLay's indictment as an example of how focused it is on issues facing the country. She pointed out that U.S. Rep. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., was quickly picked to replace DeLay as majority leader and that other party leaders remain in place.

Here I thought she would announce that she'd be returning "Hot Tub Tommy's" PAC money, and she has the audacity to tell us that his indictment should not be politicized? What are you kidding me? This from a member of the party that still politicizes 9/11.

Then she says "it's not good that our majority leader has had to step aside", what?... she misses him already? Wow, just when you thought Republicans would be distancing themselves from all this corruption, Congresswoman Hart embraces it.
