    one would think the defense would have raised that argument during the trial to allow the convict to avoid conviction
    ooops, they did
    notice how ineffective that argument was at trial
    it has the same result here

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

    I still remember how it was all just partisan hype and a witch hunt.
    I may be wrong.

    Noticed that you didn't respond to the information I posted but instead let your personal political ideology rule. The basis for appeal will be that the law he was convicted of violating didn't exist when the actions were supposedly done.

    Are you going to apologize when the verdict is overturned? The law was changed in 2003 for an action that occurred in 2002. Explain why you care about something that happened in the state of TX, something that goes on in every state in the country but isn't a big deal, especially in NY, Illinois, California, or any other Democrat bastion.

    and will you publicly eat crow when it is not? Or will you engage in the weeping and gnashing of teeth because 'justice was denied' to a scumbag who you happened to politically agree with?

    Absolutely, how many times do I have to state that. When I am wrong I apologize, when a liberal is wrong they run and ignore it. Please tell me how Tom DeLay hurt you or anyone else outside of TX? The explain to me how redistricting caused Obama to lose the state by over a million votes? How Cornyn and Perry won in a landslide? This was a political witch hunt and I find it interesting that those outside of TX are posting with great glee activities that didn't affect them and is probably going on in their own state.

    Well then don't we all sit back and await the future to unfold before we start celebrating it?

    It was partisan hype and a witch hunt. How does what DeLay was convicted of doing affect you or anyone in your state? You have such little faith in the American people as you ignore once again that lobbyists don't vote on any issue and in spite of what DeLay is convicted of doing TX remains a strongly conservative state, one that Obama lost by over a million votes. Cornyn and Perry won in landslides so who did DeLay affect those outcomes?

My bet is you will ignore your actions today and will be nowhere to be seen when that verdict is overturned.
    'Tom Delay was convicted of violating TX LAW'...yes, you are correct, indeed he was....great joy on my part? nah, not at all...great dissapointment in him? to quote Sarah Palin...'YOU BETCHA'....Sounds to me like he just got so full of himself that he didnt belive anything would come of his actions, and now he is just SHOCKED!! SHOCKED I TELL YA SHOCKED! that he was convicted. while i would hope he would serve some time for his actions, i seriously doubt he will get more than a slap on the wrist...the question was asked as to why you feel it necessary to strongly defend him...i'm curious to that myself...and you are correct, i'm not from texas, but i feel the people of the great state of texas deserve better, whether they be conservative, liberal, or anything in between.

    For the same reason that they used to hang people in the public square. It sends a message to other scumbags.
