    Tom DeLay Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison

    About ****ing time. With regards to justice, Tom sure as hell lived up to his last name.

    Tom DeLay Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison

    Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, once considered among the nation's most powerful and feared lawmakers, was sentenced to three years in prison Monday for a scheme to influence elections that already cost him his job, leadership post and millions of dollars in legal fees. The sentence comes after a jury in November convicted DeLay, a Houston-area Republican, on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering for using a political action committee to illegally send corporate donations to Texas House candidates in 2002. Prosecutors said DeLay will likely be free for months or even years as his appeal makes it through the Texas court system.

    The whole thing is exactly what Dave Chappele exemplified in this bit called "Tron Carter's Law & Order". Two different justice system's indeed.

    Agreed. Going after the politicos is a lot like going after Capone. Takes forever to nail the bastards. Now, in a decade or so maybe they'll finally nab Reid.

    I was amazed by how fast they took down Randall Duke Cunningham. That is about the only fast legal move I've ever seen on a politician of that level. And even that wasn't like kicking in his doors, putting him in handcuffs and taking him to jail.

    Glad to see justice being served finally against that crook.

    Yet democrats here in Chicago do exactly what DeLay did all the time and pretend it's business as usual.

    It's funny how republicans are held to a higher standard than democrats. Democrats can be blatant criminals and get away with it because their constituents don't care just as long as they get their free money.

    Kind of weak to deflect with a conspiracy charge.
