DeLay in the clear

Abramoff tells pals he has no dirt on DeLay: "Disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff has advised friends that he has no derogatory information about former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and is not implicating him as part of his plea bargain with federal prosecutors.

Abramoff's guilty plea on fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy charges requires him to provide evidence about members of Congress. That led to speculation that this would mean trouble for DeLay, who faces money laundering and conspiracy charges in Texas.

However, Abramoff has not given a clean bill of health to any other congressman -- including Rep. Robert Ney, who has stepped down as chairman of the House Administration Committee. Ney was named in court papers connected with Abramoff's guilty plea Jan. 4."

So, the Hammer is cleared. This any peep will be made about this elsewhere?

It's interesting news. Too bad it came too late for Delay.
