    You are absolutely right.. they are both innocent until proven guilty. The main difference in the two is that DeLay lost his position in the House. The Dems are fighting tooth and nail to make sure Rangel keeps his committee chair.

    That may be about to change though. I saw a bulletin that the House Ethics Committee has an announcement planned today on their investigation of Rangel.
    Also, Rangel has not been charged with anything yet.

    That is a huge difference between Rangel and DeLay.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    But I digress. You're right, he is innocent until his day in court. Just like Rangel, right?


    From Wiki:

    He was Republican House Majority Leader from 20032005, when his legal problems forced him to step down. In 2005, a Texas court charged DeLay with criminal violations of state campaign finance laws and money laundering. DeLay pled not guilty, claiming political motivation for the charges. As of October 2009, the prosecutor has yet to bring the case before a jury. Two former senior aides to DeLay have been convicted in the Jack Abramoff scandal, and though the infamous lobbyist was closely associated with DeLay, the former congressman himself has not been legally implicated at this time.

    Wow!!!!.... that must be an iron clad case.

    You should have drug Ted Williams out of the closet, instead. oh, wait, he was wrongfully charged and the charges were dropped...

    "Tell me American, do you actually think that Delay is a stand up guy? "

    Much more so than Cold Cash Jefferson whom Nancy Pelosi nominated to be the chairman of the House Ethics committee AFTER he had been formally charged with taking bribes in an FBI sting.

    Got to love the chutzpa involved with that move!!
