"Ethics committee chairman breaks pledge"

to immediately investigate DeLay. The Hill: “The House ethics committee may not launch an immediate investigation into the activities of former Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) once it becomes fully operational after New Year’s, according to its chairman Rep. Doc Hastings (R-WA). In April, Hastings pledged to launch an immediate probe of DeLay if Democrats agreed to cooperate with him and allow him to organize the Standards of Official Conduct Committee, as it is officially known.”
