DeLay conviction overturned – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs
Looks like something might have been trumped up given the overturning and the lack of DoJ action.(CNN) –Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's conviction on money laundering charges was overturned Thursday by a court in Texas
"Because we conclude that the evidence was legally insufficient to sustain DeLay's convictions, we reverse the judgments of the trial court and render judgments of acquittal," said an opinion from the District Court of Travis County, Texas.
The U.S. Department of Justice ended its own investigation of Delay in 2010 without filing any criminal charges against the former congressman. He has been free on bail pending appeal of his conviction.
