    Re: Texas jury convicts Tom DeLay on money laundering charges

    Conservative is having a hell of a time defending a twice-convicted felon in two separate threads. Seems to me a good, kindhearted, mod would have a heart and combine the two threads.
    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

    obama and geithner are not the topic of this thread.

    Re: DeLay convicted of money laundering charges

    this guy's still serving

    Charles Rangel guilty on 11 ethics charges - John Bresnahan - POLITICO.com

    indeed, until march, 2010, he was CHAIR of house WAYS AND MEANS, one of the most powerful men in america, tax writer in chief

    she's still here too: Ethics charges issued against Rep. Maxine Waters - Jonathan Allen and John Bresnahan - POLITICO.com

    and don't forget geithner, rattner, solis...

    there're a whole lot more

    41 Obama White House aides owe the IRS $831,000 in back taxes -- and they're not alone | Top of the Ticket | Los Angeles Times

    reform should start at the top, no?

    This is a local issue and not national in scope. Attornies in Houston claim that the prosecutiion didn't prove their case and thus this will be overturned on appeal. Wouldn't be surprised if a few of the people here weren't sitting on the jury acting on their own biases. Austin is one of the few bastions of liberalism in the state of TX and we saw evidence of that fact tonight. I have no problem convicting DeLay if he truly broke the law but there still is question of that based upon the testimony that was presented. Doubt that many people here know about that testimony since they don't live here and in fact probably didn't even know that a trial was going on.
