The "facts" in the indictment do not make a case for illegal contributions by the corporations because the indictment doesn't even allege that the corporate contributions were made within 60 days of an election. The essential argument is that a contribution was made to the RNC from a Texas PAC, which had received these corporate contributions (the dates of which we don't know), and certain candidates in Texas received money (presumably from the RNC), although not necessarily tracking with the corporate contributions to the PAC. If this sounds convoluted, it is. Based on this information, I see no illegal contribution, let alone no tie to Tom DeLay. I also note that none of the corporations that made contributions have been indicted. (And, by the way, the Texas conspiracy statute requires evidence that those charged actually intended to commit a crime. So, the bar for the government is significant.) The more I analyze this, the more outrageous this appears. I only hope the mainstream media will do a better job reporting on this than on Hurricane Katrina. Posted at 03:47 PM
I wonder if some members of the 'Donner Party' wing of the Republican Party will wake up and focus on the real enemies the democrats.
ROFLMAO!!! Yea, right.
Are you kidding ? MSM will spin this until Delay (and GOP by extension) looks like a bigger criminal than Ted Kennedy.
It doesn't matter to the Democrats. They were able to have huge headlines besmirching Tom Delay which they now, if they retract the story at all, will do so in very tiny print on the inside of the back page of the classified section of the newspaper so everyone is SURE to see it.
Mr. Delay - I suggest that you hire Mr. Levin.
Here is some actual information which you may find interesting.
J.D. Hayworth just said that Ronnie Earle stood up at a Democrat fundraiser and said "I'm the man who's going to bring down Tom Delay!" JD also said that this was the SIXTH GRAND JURY Earle went to to get an indictment!!!! Travis County must be like LOUISIANA....CORRUPT!!
Amen. What are the odds of both party leaders in one week if not for some political machine making this happen? Do the Democrats have a "Rove"?
To make Delay look more criminal than Teddy Swimmer would be a big task for even the MSM.
I can't wait for Pelosi to hold a press conference asking why she didn't get to choose Delay's replacement.
After harnessing her for along time and refiling his paperwork, he finally dropped his charges but not before having a big press powwow to exhibit his 'evidence' to them.
Ronnnie is a Burkett with real power!
we should have struck back in 2001 - in the Marc Rich case, and all of the other gems left by the Clintons. The "new tone" stopped it - did it get us anywhere?
Austin is (sadly) the Berkeley of Texas.
How do we do that?
