A federal grand jury in Washington D.C. has issued a subpoena for the House payroll records of Ed Buckham, former chief of staff to ex-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX). The subpoena "is the first formal notification that Buckham is the focus of a federal corruption probe by the Justice Department."Of course, Raising Kaine was all over this last year.
Now things get interesting. If the the grand jury indicts Buckham he'll do what every other indicted Republican has done: he'll roll over and testify against his friends. This should make for an interesting Republican primary next year.
