    Judge sentences Tom DeLay to 3 years in prison

    This is very good news...

    AUSTIN, Texas – A judge ordered former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to serve three years in prison Monday for his role in a scheme to illegally funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.
    The sentence comes after a jury in November convicted DeLay on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

    After Delay gets out of prison, he is also going to have to serve 10 years probation. The wheels of justice may turn slow in Texas, but they do turn. Delay has just gotten his just deserts. You can get away with a lot of crap in Texas, if you are connected, but laundering money isn't one of them.

    At least justice was met in this case. Now we just need to put Randal in the slammer as well.

    If you do the crime, you do the time.

    I predict at least some of his sentence or convictions will be overturned on appeal

    I'm skeptical. I doubt he'll spend one day in jail.

    Re: Judge sentences Tom DeLay to 3 years in prison

    Very good news indeed! I remember getting an invitation as a small business owner from the office of Tom Delay to join a Business Advisory Group. It was noted that the "group" would not vote on anything, or even have to attend any meetings. There was however a $250 fee to join to be made payable to Tom Delay's office.
    I wonder how many he suckered in with that one?
