We knew it was coming. We shouldn't be surprised. The left owns Earl, they own the media, and Delay was number one on their list. Indicted on a campaign financing scheme? Who knows more about campaign finance then good ole NY Senator Boss Clinton.
Why is it no one ever brings up Delay's little known enormous acts of kindness? Well allow me to speak of the goodness of the man. His advocacy for foster children is something that even the most hardened liberals begrudgingly applaud him for. For many years now, DeLay has been working to improve the foster-care system. He and his wife Casey, he and his wife Christine have raised three foster children. All of them were troubled teenagers who had been bounced around from home to home (the leasted wanted, the least "adoptable" kids). Casey Family Programs, for example, week presented a leadership award "for his longstanding and impassioned commitment to bettering the lives and educational opportunities for children in foster care."
Innocent until proven guilty appears to apply only to Democraps and murderers (and even then, they are considered "victim" of their circumstances).
They wanted Trent Lott out, they got him out..........Robert Byrd was a high ranking KKK member, thats ok.
Delay says he is innocent. He calls the charge baseless and a sham..........He accuses Ronnie Earl of abuse of power. All Democrat Earl had to do was get the indictment,and Delay stepped aside. That's a level of integrity the Republicans hold themselves up to. Not the Democrats, you can't get rid of them even after they've been impeached. Republicans step aside, Democrats two step.
Democrat Ronnie Earl is a Democratic fundraiser.......
The indictment is not at all specific as to what Delay has done wrong. Just used that Boogyman "conspired". This is political payback.
UPDATE: 3:30 am September 29th......observations from Dr. NGH
The Democrats have been unable to win elections and thus power. So the strategy they have evolved is to hamstring opponents such they cannot wield their power. In so doing they also think their own position is enhanced. These hatchet jobs have taken a variety of forms a la "Get Bush" any which way, but to my mind none so virulent as the relentless pursuit of Delay. They were so incensed over his redistricting plans, apparently a worthwhile activity only when done in their favor. The former charges regarding trips were so weak that Nancy Pelosi could barely get her own house in order to point fingers at Delay during her media shows, I mean press conferences. I could go on with what the problem is this time, but it so doesn't warrant it. This is a witch hunt and sometimes if they keep coming for you, they're going to find something. Look, right now they're talking to Rush Limbaugh's doctors to see if he tried to trick any of them into giving more pain pills than he should have. Half the nations celebritites including a prominent Palm Beach judge have had identical drug problems and we never do this. We never prosecute. It's obviously so politically motivated. I take solace in the fact that Delay is a man of the Lord as I see it and He takes care of His own. I look forward to watching this play out. The mofos are laying down their karma and I sort of get satisfaction from that.
DELAY INDICTED # posted by reliapundit
Delay was indicted in TRAVIS County Texas. For conspiracy.This is the same county that the fake BUSH TANG documents came from. (More HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE.)he Dem Travis county DA is a partisan hack, and the trumped up indictment (which took forever to arm-twist out of the Grand Jury - a normally pliable bunch - even though it is for conspiracy, which is well-known to be a charge of last resort) a WILD abuse of power.
This indictment is an outrageous partisan attack which is nothing more than an outrageous ABUSE OF POWER by the Democrat Travis Couty DA!
Unable to WIN AN ELECTION against the GOP and Delay, the immoral Leftists have reverted to form: abusing the coercive power of the state to attack popularly elected officials.
The Democrat Party - under the control of the immoral Left and the BDS afflicted - has no values, no policies, and no shame.
The truth will come out, and when it does, it will be another nail in the coffin of the Left. Thank God. The sooner the better.
Update: October 1st
Just for knowing...............
Hat tip Tom P
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has fined two leadership PACs associated with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in response to a Complaint filed by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) on October 25, 2002. The FEC also has fined three campaigns that failed to return excessive contributions from Pelosi’s PACs within 60 days, as required by law.
Under conciliation agreements reached with the FEC, Pelosi’s two committees — PAC to the Future and Team Majority — will pay $21,000. Julie Thomas for Congress Campaign Committee (D–IA) and Van Hollen for Congress (D–MD) will each pay $2,500, and Joe Turnham for Congress (D–AL) will pay $2,000. The three campaigns also agreed to disgorge $5,000 each to the U.S. Treasury.
In its Complaint, NLPC alleged that Pelosi violated federal election law by operating two “leadership” political action committees (PACs) in order to circumvent contribution limits. Members of the Democrat and Republican leaderships in the House and Senate may legally have one so-called leadership PAC in addition to their own campaign committee. The purpose of leadership PACs is to make contributions to the campaigns of other Congressional candidates.
NLPC’s Complaint cited a second circumvention of the law, that of the limits on amounts donors may give to PACs. Team Majority, the newer PAC, reported sixteen contributions of $5,000 each from donors who also gave the maximum to Pelosi’s other PAC. Five of the donors gave to both PACs on the same day.RTWT
UPDATE: OCTOBER 10th Soros Behind the Hit. Just follow the money.
No surprise here, but more proof of how diabolical George Soros is. He is contemptuous of the will of the American people, what counts is what he wants. And he wants America.
Richard Poe of FrontPageMag.com reports on the money trail ;
THREE SEPARATE FORCES are attacking Congressman Tom DeLay. Outwardly, these forces seem independent. On closer inspection, however, we find that all three have something in common. All have significant links to leftwing billionaire, Democrat kingmaker and convicted insider trader George Soros. (1)
