    What ever, as long as he is out and about and has to report what he did, every month to a parole officer, preferably in Austin.
    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

    Generally, I think you have a point. However, a breach of the public trust is a very serious violation of the law and should be treated with the full weight of the law in sentencing.

    Didn't know that people whose conviction is overturned on appeal had to also get a parole?

    Seems to me you are the one that has trouble with "facts" and is in denial. He was convicted by a jury. Get ****ing over it! And we keep hearing about some ****ing elections that has nothing to do with his conviction.

    Feel better now? Watch for the appeal and the overturning of that conviction. Bet we don't see much of you then.

    Wishful thinking....
    even if it happens, he will always be guilty of not having an ounce of respect for law.
    Every politician who breaches the public trust should be exiled, to Texas.
    Clearly GOP Texans love their crooked politicians....

    To be honest, tho, I doubt Texans can ever achieve the level of Chicago crookedness...

    Maybe Tom can share a cell with a couple of Illinois Governors.
