Some lib just told me Earle has prosecuted more Dems than Reps, is this true?
Great now we get that poodle dave drier running the show.....
Good collection of links--some I haven't seen yet. Thanks, Backhoe!
I thought it was Blunt?
It's true, Earle has prosecuted more Dems than Reps, now how do I argue that?
Beats me. Wasn't my question. Did you mean to direct that to someone else?
Talking heads on the news shows have been saying that Delay's lawyers explained to Earle in no uncertain terms that were two SEPARATE accounts at the RNC...one for corporate contributions, and one for individual contributions. The was no "exchanging" of money between the two accounts. The corporate funds donated went to the corporate account and those funds were NOT funneled back to Texas. The account for individual contributions was the account used to help fund Republican candidate in various election races, and the use of individual contributions to help candidates is PERFECTLY LEGAL.
If Earle was in fact informed of this, and those two accounts do exist, Earle needs to be investigated for prosecutorial misconduct and lose his license to practice law.
Thanks for looking.
More criminals are Dems?
I'd kind of like to see the stats for that. However, there is the issue of Earle bragging that he would take DeLay down. Doesn't sound like a fair prosecution to me.
That's dang sure true. LOL
Well, over his career, this was a one-party state. All Democrat. The Republican takeover didn't even begin until the mid-90s, and we didn't even gain control of the legislature until 2002.
So, he attacked some Rats that he didn't agree with when they were the only game in town. Very impressive.
Great work! (as usual) :)
Folks, this is an easy one. The Dems launched this Indictment to create a bargaining chip against the Indictments the Dems know are coming against certain Louisiana Democratic personalities.
Why would you argue on an irrelevant point?
Either the indictment has merit, or not. Argue that.
What are you talking about?
Makes sense to me- thanks!
Ronnie Earle took plea bargain from corporate defendants - "Dollars for Dismissals"
The Texas Statutes that form the basis for the indictment
Parallel indictment (same facts) in April 2005, not naming DeLay
