    House Votes to Reverse GOP Ethics Rules

    The House voted overwhelmingly late Wednesday to reverse new Republican-written rules that led Democrats to shut down the ethics committee.

    The Republicans, accused of writing the rules to protect Majority Leader Tom DeLay from investigations, heeded Speaker Dennis Hastert's call for a retreat in order to end the deadlock on the evenly divided panel. The vote was 406-20.

    We ought to let DeLay blow in the wind for the rest of the year, and get him out of the House in '06.
