    Stereotypes die hard. Beliefs settle in and become fact.

    if it were true that we could charge folks with money laundering for using legal money to do illegal things with, we'd have a whole lot more folks in prison...
    nah, the whole idea behind money laundering laws is that it assumes illegal money is being laundered into clean money... not the inverse.

    but yeah, the "old law" did allow for checks to be used... checks were not recognized as money under the old law....(ex post facto application of the law is a bad thing, i think we can all agree.)

    I think it was improper to charge him with money laundering... and I pretty much agree that the evidence doesn't support a conviction under that particular statute.


    personally, I think he should have been convicted of illegal campaign contributions... he knew the money was from corporations, and he knew that money shouldn't go to campaigns... that stuff is illegal in Texas and it seem like that charge would have a more solid legal footing.( the check "loophole" still stands in the way, though)

    I'd be happy with some good old country boy justice ... a couple of nice hard punches to the assholes nose sits well with me, for some reason.

    And that's what it was all about. Destroying political enemies.

    An odd coincidence that Waco showed up on the same thread.

    Those "12 citizens entrusted" probably had little clue as to what the law actually was. They sure didn't hear what the law was from the Dem prosecutor. As the appeal judges made clear.

    I won't blame those 12 for the miscarriage of justice when the fault lies with the political hack DA.

    that's the way the game is being played. anyone who is even barely awake sees it
    and the hammer exposed himself to such a hit when he violated tejas state law prohibiting the use of corporate donations to fund state political races
    that's exactly what delay did
    only texas law makers specifically excluded checks (at that time) from being found a conduit of criminal money. that minor - and odd - distinction is what got the hammer a get out of jail free card

    the political hack in that whole matter was one congressman delay, aka the hammer
    just be glad he is now gone from the political scene, despite now being away from incarceration

    The US is becoming more and more like the old Soviet Union. Leftists must have their way at any cost, never understanding what the consequences of their ignorance will be.
