DeLay’s Last Days?

As Congress prepares to return, rumors are circulating that House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R.-Tex.) may announce his retirement in ?¢â??¬â??¢06. Speculation about DeLay?¢â??¬â??¢s exodus from Congress comes amid increased media attention on the Texan?¢â??¬â??¢s relations with lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who was indicted for fraud last week. Abramoff associate Michael Scanlon ?¢â??¬???has been in discussions with the Justice Department,?¢â??¬  according to the Washington Post. ?¢â??¬???The potential cooperation of Scanlon with prosecutors could provide crucial evidence in the federal task force investigation of Abramoff and his lobbying,?¢â??¬  the paper speculated. Whether DeLay runs or not, Democrats are expected to wage a spirited challenge for his Houston-area seat with former Rep. Chris Bell.
