Those types sit around and keep trying to invent crimes just as the DA did to start this fiasco.
    Apparently, according to haymarket, he was convicted for being a politician.

    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.
    There are other instances and cases, but surely the poster-child case for just how utterly corrupted the US judiciary is, is this case.

    Madison is rolling in his grave. The last bulwark against tyranny is rotten to the core.

    There's another 12 who are hoping he runs for congress again and takes Boehner's position.

    And the fact is Delay committed no crime. Check out what the appeals court said.

    So those 12 made a mistake or like you, don't care what the law says.

    A jury of 12 Travis county residents were convinced that the spirit of the law was more important
    that the letter of the law.
    This whole it's right because it feels right, is a liberal concept, Should we not be surprised
    that that was the basis of a conviction in the most liberal county in Texas?
    Last time I checked 2002 (when the Supposed offense took place), predates the 2004 law
    that made it illegal to transfer the type of funds used by Delay by check.
    It is a technicality, but still the law.
    The appeals court overturned an incorrect Jury verdict, and rendered a verdict of acquittal.

    A jury of 12 Texans sat and heard the charges. They heard the witnesses for both sides. They examined the evidence. They listened to the judge explain the law.

    And they found him GUILTY.

    Republicans on the appeals court rewarded him for political services rendered to the party.

    YOu would think the trial judge knew these things that you pretend to know.

    Such is how things go when people place politics above the law.
    Both sides should fear and abhor such activities.

    I saw evidence of just that in the appeals court ruling allowing DeLay to escape his crimes.
