    Wow! CNN failed to mention DeLay is a republican! That is a first. Maybe CNN has realized in the aftermath of the tuscon shootings, that they are biased to the left? Good gesture CNN, let's see how long it lasts.

    No surprise there. After all,most Republicans are crooked anyway as are "blue-dog" Democrats. That's how the MIC(military-industrial-complex) runs things in Washington through these back-room deals!

    I believe DeLay is one guy whose power went to his head and spun out of control not really caring about what's right or wrong and that wife of his acted like her you know what didn't stink. I don't think she helped him in court.

    A crooked Travis County DA bragged that he was going to bring down a sitting congressman before the indictment and had to take the case before three (3) grand Juries before he found one that would indict. He was convicted by a jury in heavily democratic Travis County of a law that wasn't passed until a year after he was accused. This joke of a conviction will be overturned on appeal.
