Fox News has the story.

Tom DeLay said this wasn’t going to happen. From the AP, 10/3/05:

The criminal charges are “so frivolous, so over-the-top, so embarrassing to the judiciary that we ought to be able to get it out of here pretty quickly,” DeLay told “Fox News Sunday.” “It will be over and be over very, very soon. And I think I will go back to be majority leader.”

UPDATE: The AP has more.

UPDATE II: DeLay releases his official resignation letter.
