Clear signs over the weekend that Rep. party sentiment is turning
against Tom DeLay.
"I think he has to come forward and lay out what he did and why he did it and let the people then judge for themselves," Santorum said. "From everything I've heard … everything he's done was according to the law."
"Tom's conduct is hurting the Republican Party, is hurting this Republican majority, and it is hurting any Republican who is up for reelection...My party is going to have to decide whether we are going to continue to make excuses for Tom to the detriment of Republicans seeking election."
Forget for a moment that both these guys live in relatively moderate districts and are probably getting call after call with questions about DeLay, it's just nice to see a crack appear in the republican's Iron Curtain of party unity. Does Tom have enough hands to plug those cracks while defending himself?
Maybe soon they'll be eating their young just like the Dems.
