    He was proven guilty.

    Why don't you support your case by posting the pertinent testimony?

    What? You are taking some lawyers from Houston's word on it?

Do you know what redistricting is? Do you understand the difference between voting for a Representative and the total vote in the state? Think redistricting had anything to do with the total vote in the state?
    delay was convicted of illegally funneling corporate money to elect republican candidates to the legislature in texas...do you know what this was all about? or is your continued defense of him just a kneejerk reaction because he has an R in front of his name? you know, people outside of texas do understand what the case is about, and we are not all just knuckle dragging dolts....

    The subject of debate and certainly open for discussion

    we are not all just knuckle dragging dolts
    Now let's see how the appeals court rules as you stated what you read in the newspaper. I posted the link for the timeline and will post some of the transcript later that calls into question the charges. The fact is the Defense was prepared to put DeLay on the stand but didn't because they believed like many of the attorneys in Houston that they didn't need to. We shall see but in the meantime have fun with your biased, partisan opinions that have absolutely nothing to do with you or in general the country. This case certainly provides a good diversion for people like you who need a break from the disaster that Democrats have made of the current economy.

    This case gives DeLay a black eye as if he didn't have one in the first place especially in the eyes of liberals.

    the man was convicted by a jury of his peers...i'm sure he will get his due process, and multiple appeals...why the constant push to bring democrats and the obama administration into the debate? they had nothing to do with what delay did, the topic is about delay...

    The topic of DeLay brings in the overall corruption in politics and the biased, partisan rhetoric on both sides. Those that jump for joy at the conviction of Tom DeLay do so out of partisanship and ignore that what DeLay was convicted of doing is no different that what happens all over the country in Democrat controlled states. The facts of the case were ignored and what DeLay did will be overturned on appeal because the facts don't justify the conviction. Redistricting had nothing to do with the massive defeat of Obama in TX and the recent Legislative losses by Democrats in Nov. 2010. You have such little faith in people which is probably due to the fact that you judge everyone else by your own actions.

    I hope he gets paroled.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    And those who claim that people should be viewed "innocent until proven guilty" and will win their appeal shouldn't judge people who haven't stood trial.

    You don't understand what happens in Democrat controlled states because you don't live there.

    again, recent election results have nothing to do with what delay was convicted of, and i'm at a loss as to why you keep bringing them up.
