    Good to see him get this overturned. It was nothing but a political hack job to start with.

    However some positive things did come to light in all this. He did do the right thing and resign after being charged. Most people would have tried to hang on and abuse their political power in trying to get the charges reduced or dropped. Of course along the way anyone that does that can't be trusted for anything and our country has to suffer through it. To bad more politicians don't set positive examples in a negative environment.

    I was always more mad at the Reps that threw Tom under the bus than I was the dems that destroyed him.

    The court ruling stated,
    we reverse the judgments of the trial court and render judgments of acquittal
    I am wondering if jeopardy is attached?
    One of the news stations said the Travis County prosecutor may try to appeal the appeal.
    I thought after an acquittal, it was done.

    Actually no one calls them Reaganophones. You should stop and think before you edit someone else's post.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
