Chris Shays (R-CN) demanded that Majority Leader Tom DeLay resign.
“Tom’s conduct is hurting the Republican Party, is hurting this Republican majority and it is hurting any Republican who is up for re-election,” Rep. Chris Shays, a Connecticut Republican, told The Associated Press in an interview, calling for DeLay to step down as majority leader.
The Wall Street Journal chimed in saying DeLay should get out, and Sen. Santorum (R-PA) called on DeLay to explain his conduct to the public.
The sudden barrage from the Right comes as a group of DeLay supporters is gearing up for a campaign to convince the public that DeLay is a godly Christian hero and that charges against him are all trumped up by Democrats, liberals and the leftwing media.
Democrats like Shays, liberals like Santorum and leftwing media like the WSJ.
