Boehner's statement on DeLay's decision

From his website:

U.S. Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement regarding the announcement by former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX):

“Tom DeLay and I have had our differences over the years, but I can say without hesitation he is one of the most effective and gifted leaders the Republican Party has ever known. My heart goes out to Tom, Christine, and the DeLay family for all the pain they have endured. My belief is that Tom will eventually be cleared and exonerated, and my hope is that our Conference will one day again benefit from Tom’s rare commitment to the principles of smaller government and freedom for which all Republicans fight.”
