Meanwhile, Back In Texas ….

Meanwhile, Back In Texas ....

While the world’s eyes have been on tragic crimes in Tucson, justice was served in Texas. Judge Pat Priest sentenced former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to three years in prison for conspiracy to money-launder and ten years probation for criminal money laundering. A jury in the Lone Star State  found the disgraced GOP leader guilty of the two charges in November. Mr. DeLay had disguised illegal corporate campaign contributions to Texas state Republicans by running the money through a Republican PAC.

Mr. DeLay is free on bond awaiting appeal He’ll probably try to dance his way out of the convictions, but his experience with that was pretty painful, too.

    Lady liberty smiles every time a crooked politician is exposed and punished. I only hope that Delay does the time he is sentenced to because without doing physical time this will do nothing to deter future crimes by politicians.

    Next we need to see Charles Rangel behind bars.

    Too bad he’s not serving time for using that $$$ to illegally gerrymander the State of Texas. So, where’s he going to be serving his time? Do they have tennis courts?

    We’re all paying the price for that. Two words: Louie Gohmert.

    So, where’s he going to be serving his time?

    Huntsville, I hope.

    Do they have tennis courts?

    Prison farm.
