    why don't you? you are the one claiming to be the expert, the one who knows the political lean of the jury, and how fellow texans all think...i'm sure you spelling it all out for us would be quite entertaining.

    Re: DeLay convicted of money laundering charges

    ‘Conservative’ asked how Delay's crimes affected people outside of Texas and I answered that he ensured that popular Democratic incumbents to the U.S. Congress were defeated when their districts were redrawn by a Republican dominated legislature to their political demise. All Delay had to do was illegally convert corporate money into paid media benefiting Republican candidates for state legislative offices. Now, he's a convicted criminal and all those popular Democratic incumbents are former U.S. Representatives. Delay may rot in jail, but, your Congress will never be the same. I was wrong: I said the whole of the state of Texas was a crime scene; the reality is the whole of the United States is the crime scene.

Redistricting is a state issue not something DeLay had anything to do with and it is the opinion of local attorneys that this will be overturned on appeal so then what?
    what is the political lean of these local attorneys? what are their names?

    Re: Ex-House Leader DeLay Found Guilty in Texas Case

    The guy who blew up a US embassy, killing 280 people gets 20 years and Delay is looking at life, because he spent political donations on...uh...politics.

    Our justice system is a ****ing joke.

    good for you!

    Why are you defending a crook.
    i haven't typed a stroke in defense of delay, if that's who you mean, for all i know he's guilty

    We need look past these idiots that con us and get honest people, GOP or Dem.
    yup, it starts at the top

    did you know charlie's still representing washington heights, geithner's still at treas

    the 41 tax cheats, at least as of sept 10, according to wapo, are still in the white house

    Re: DeLay convicted of money laundering charges

    There are a couple of things about this subject that bother me:
    • The propensity of left-leaning posters for celebration
    • The propensity of right-leaning posters for obfuscation and finger-pointing
    By no means am I saying that all posters of any particular lean are behaving in a certain way. I'm just saying I noticed patterns that bothered me.

    What bothers me the most is the fact that DeLay is facing a maximum sentence of 99 + 20 years. That's obscene.

    Criminal sanctions should in some way be proportional to actual harm done. Failing a clear finding on that front, a sentence of not more than 3 years is more than reasonable.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Re: DeLay convicted of money laundering charges

    did you hear about what looks like hush money charlie gave to sitting members of the ethics committee, source cbs?

    CBS 2 HD has learned of more alleged back-door dealings and political power peddling by Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel.
    The reigning member of Congress’ top tax committee is apparently “wrangling” other politicos to get him out of his own financial and tax troubles. …
    CBS 2 HD has discovered that since ethics probes began last year the 79-year-old congressman has given campaign donations to 119 members of Congress, including three of the five Democrats on the House Ethics Committee who are charged with investigating him.
    Charlie’s “angels” on the committee include Congressmen Ben Chandler of Kentucky, G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina and Peter Welch of Vermont. All have received donations from Rangel.
    Did Rangel pay off Ethics Committee members? Update: WaPo says, “Time to go” « Hot Air

    now, there's some mighty fine CORRUPTION

    and the kicker---he's STILL THERE
