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.
    Seeing as you seem to think of this as a local issue, maybe Tom can serve his time in a local Tx for profit Penn, rather than a fed country club penn.

    I can see it now...Tom meet your new cellmate,Bubba,Bubba this is Tom.Bubba says hi Tom, seen you shake your bootie on dancin with the stars.

    O.K so now you're complaining about just the thing you are doing yourself. That justifies you doing it. Got it!

    Redistricting is a state issue, not a national issue. That is handled by the state govt. not House Members. If you think redistricting was bad then wait until you see the next one with a Republican Governor and 20 more GOP legislators.

    I thought there was an open season on liberals in Texas and they are nearly extirpated?

    I live 180 miles from Austin, the case was well covered in the Houston media, a city that is hardly Conservative having a Democrat Mayor the last decade or so, so I have a much better idea of what went on in Austin than you have living in Ohio. You really ought to stick with what you know, whatever that is.

    Yawn… for this useless post.

    You give partisanship a bad name.

    These petty accusations add up to whole lot of ‘so what!’

    Consider, just consider, the sheer magnitude of the consequences of Delay's crimes.

    By illegally converting corporate funds into purchased media for select Republican state candidates across Texas, Tom Delay upset the national political map. Yes, it was just Texas state races, but, the consequences were far more dramatic than that after the 2000 census. Then the state legislature controlled the fate of dozens of popular Texas Democratic representatives to the U.S. Congress who were struct down and that state's delegation turned absurdly ‘red’ per Delay's evil design. The whole plan was solely that: destroy the Democratic party in Texas. It was ‘Murder, He Wrote.’

    The whole of Texas is a crime scene and Tom Delay's hands are covered in blood. Let him rot!

    The stars are a little brighter over the lone star tonight because of this man.Heres to ya Ronnie.

    <Ronald Dale "Ronnie" Earle (born February 23, 1942) was, until January 2009, the District Attorney for Travis County, Texas. He became nationally known for filing charges against House majority leader Tom DeLay in September 2005 for conspiring to violate Texas' election law and/or to launder money.>
