House leader Tom Delay has temporarily stepped down after being indicted by a Texas grand jury.

Delay, along with two political associates faces conspiracy charges in a campaign finance scheme.

The 11-term congressman is also at the center of another political storm, this one in Washington DC, over whether lobbyists paid his tab for travel abroad.

GOP congressional leaders say speaker Dennis Hastert will recommend that David Dreier of California take over Delay's job.
