Tom DeLay,

House majority leader, was rebuked three times in the course two weeks by the House Ethics Committee. He was criticized for pressuring another representative to vote in favor of the Medicare bill, for questionable fund-raising tactics, and for asking federal aviation officials to help find Texas Democratic legislators who fled the state rather than vote on a redistricting plan they deemed unfair. In November, the House of Representatives voted to change its rules to allow leaders to retain their positions while under federal indictment.
