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.
    did not a jury of his peers convict him? and yes, it is a national issue, as delay was an influential congressman, who had the ear of republican leadership.

    DeLay has been out of office for 8 years now, Waters, Rangel, and Geitner are still holding down their jobs. DeLay resigned doing what was right, Democrats don't believe they did anything wrong and hang on for dear life.

    Re: DeLay convicted of money laundering charges

    When I saw these threads, my first thought was wondering how long it would take people to start pointing to others. Apparently not long.

    For those who still have not figured it our, corruption has nothing to do with parties or partisan politics, and everything to do with people abusing their power. Rangel was found guilty of being corrupt, and deserves everything he gets. This has nothing to do with his party. DeLay was convicted of a crime, and deserves everything he gets. This has nothing to do with his party. I am a liberal democrat, and I don't give a **** that DeLay is a republican. The only thing that matters is he is a criminal.

    You can go back to your mindless partisan finger pointing now, sorry to distract you from it.

    Then go start a thread on Waters, Rangel, or Geitner,this thread is about that twice convected felon and dancing with the stars contestant Tom Delay.
    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
