It’s about d**n time. Ronnie Earle, the SOB Democrat DA who brought the false charges, should be hauled into court and convicted, but this is Austin.

His liberal Democrat woman successor was arrested for driving drunk as a skunk with an open vodka bottle at her side....and is still DA, proving that Austin is can truly be called the Big Blue Anus of TX.

“...Where does he go to get his reputation back?...”

Well, for one thing - make him Speaker of the House again... he was maliciously and unfairly interdicted in that duty, and should have the opportunity to finish out that term.

It’s only FAIR, after all...

He’s a good man. We need him back.

The only purpose of the fraudulent prosecution was to end his political career.

Mission accomplished.

The only reason Tom Delay was ever convicted is because he is a conservative republican and a patriot who hates injustice and tyranny, but the demo dogs of hell and the rino yellow lizards gathered together against him to make him an example of the new tyranny of America.
May the good Lord Jesus bless and keep him from both dems and rinos who hate America.

Nowhere. How many news outlets will even report on this? He will forever be remembered as “the disgraced House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.” That is the disgrace!

This was a perfect example of a communist liberal Democrat prosecutor and how corrupt a court system can be. Americas problem is so huge I doubt it will ever be back to a Constitutional freedom land again.

It doesnt matter to the RATs, they got what they wanted. Trump up some charges and eliminate a political opponent. If years down the road the conviction gets over turned, their vicitm is no longer a threat.

I understand the dumbocrats and their skullduggery...what drives me crazy is the RINOs who stood by and let this happen to DeLay.

As far as I’m concerned, that fact in and of itself is prim a-facea evidence that the GOPe is controlled and run by dumbocrats.

That's called lawfare. Same thing happened to Ted Stevens.

I'm guessing they had a hand in his fall as it is.

Wasn't just the Rats, by themselves, trying to bring him down.

You are indeed right, and I am wrong. He wasn’t Speaker.

But yes, he should have been. The Dems HATED him.

Sorry for the incorrect info.

~SIGH~ So what you're saying is that if my wife and I wanted to maybe retire to that area (my wife thinks it's one of the prettiest parts of the state) and we were looking for some conservative values, (not to mention finding some conservative friends) we'd be out of luck?

They won, they took him out, and there is no remedy for that. I’m sure they’ll be happy to pay money as reparations just as they’d have been happy to pay DeLay to just resign in the first place. They wanted him gone and they got what they wanted.

Can't he still be Speaker even if he is not a House Member?

Sure would beat Boehner....

My mini Schnauzer and Chiweenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund mix) would be better than Boehner.

Dougie and Mr. Wiggles would daily tear the Dems. a new one!
