    Re: Texas jury convicts Tom DeLay on money laundering charges

    I'm glad he got convicted, and I wished d Rangle had gotten a little more than a sanction thought. However, from what I understand is that this sanction, basically ruins the mans political career. However I'm in no way shape or form defending what Rangle did I wished he got more than just ruined career.

    I don't know-with certain elements and voting blocks being "oppressed by da man" is a badge of honor. Look at Marion SNORT Barry of DC.

    Hey TD.Is this something that is taught in law school when you lose a case?

    ("This is a terrible miscarriage of justice," said Dick DeGuerin, DeLay's lead attorney. "... This will never stand up on appeal." )

    It seems that every time a shyster looses a case, be it OJ, or whoever, its almost the same words.

    He's 80. He has an excuse to retire. If he were 30, that might mean a hill-a-beans.

    But, in this case, what Delay did wasn't illegal, until after he did it. Isn't that right?

    Explain this question.

    you do understand that shyster is not the correct term to apply to a major league defense attorney. John Edwards on the other hand would fit that description
