    Bred, born, raised, lived in Texas, so according to your logic I would have more claim than a transplant.

    Besides, I knew of and about 'Hot Tub Tom' long before you even heard of Texas, much less moved there.

    Yep, and DeLay has the right to appeal. When the verdict is overturned what then for you? Amazing how it is the will of the people when someone is convicted that some don't like but an injustice when that verdict is overturned on the rule of law? Nothing DeLay does is going to satisfy you but the point remains the will of the people of TX shows that that DeLay did not have an affect on the majority in this state and their will.

    The will of the people is Conservative so what affect did DeLay have on the elections?
    Correct me if I am wrong, but were not the last elections a few weeks before the conviction? How could the conviction of Delay have any impact on elections that have not yet happened? And it matters not if they do or not... he was convicted in a court and got all his Constitutional rights and was convicted under Texas law by a jury.

    And what if it is not overturned? I'm not the one here exuding confidence like a lanced boil exudes puss.

    Since you were born and raised in TX then you understand the appeals process as well as you under stand Ronnie Earl. Things have been very bleak for you over the past decade on the political front as it appears that the will of the majority contradicts your will to get those who you don't agree with.

    How many times do I have to state that I will apologize and admit that I was wrong.

    Texas has already lowered their standards in many ways, so I agree that Tom might get pardoned, or something, eventually.
