Tom Davis associate under investigation

One of Tom Davis' closest associates is under investigation:
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."[1]
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.
