    so your point is that the prosecution was political as well

    Like what?

    You cannot use a partisan republican opinion used to reward a partisan republican warrior who engaged in doing battle for the republican party and rewarding other republicans through redistricting as any sort of objective evidence.

    Please read again. It was the CRIMES WHICH WERE POLITICAL IN NATURE.

    The prosecution was political in nature as is the boo hooing of those who are mad that DeLay beat the bogus rap. I believe I said the indictment was BS when it happened

    Looks like I was right-yet again

    You don't seem to pay much attention to what you've previously stated.

    The only thing you were right about was the use of the word POLITICAL..... the crimes DeLay committed were POLITICAL pure and simple.

    He was acting as a POLITICAL operative.

    He aided the Republican Party - a POLITICAL organization.

    He attempted to give serious advantage in redistricting to a POLITICAL party for POLITICAL reasons.

    Yes, DeLay was POLITICAL from start to finish when his POLITICAL allies on the appeals court saved his sorry ass by rewarding him for his POLITICAL service.

    As a matter of fact, Delay committed no crimes. If you think he did, I suggest looking at what the appeals court decided. That would change the mind of anyone who was mistaken and thought he committed a crime, except for people with a political agenda. Those types sit around and keep trying to invent crimes just as the DA did to start this fiasco.
