Tancredo joins Shays' Rebellion, on temporary basis

Tom Ferraro of Reuters has the story, from a statement issued by Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO):

"I believe that all of the charges against Tom DeLay I have seen to date lack merit," said Rep. Thomas Tancredo, a Colorado Republican, in a statement.

"However if the majority leader were to temporarily step aside so that these trumped up charges can be dealt with in a less hostile environment, as they have proven to be an unnecessary distraction, it may be a productive move," he said.

Very calculated.
