A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

DeLay indicted: GOP majority leader Tom DeLay has been indicted for violating a Texas campaign finance law.

I don't know if DeLay is guilty, but I'm more than a little bit skeptical because this prosecutor has a history of using the law for partisan gain.


Among the politicians he has tangled with is Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. [District Attorney Ronnie] Earle accused her of using her previous office as state treasurer for personal and political purposes. But he abruptly dropped his case in 1994 before it could go to trial.


It's been said that you can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich -- it will be interesting to see what evidence Earle has come up with. The explanations that I've seen so far don't prove much of anything.

Comments:
The history you refer to includes indicting far more Democrats than Republicans. History also reveals that Delay has had numerous ethics lapses and has been admonished by the House Ethics committee. Let's wait and see, but I think Delay may be in hot water. Corruption respects no political party affiliation.
 
Travis County is 90% Democrat, so percentages favor more Democrat indictments. This is the same DA, who incidentally is letting accused murders in his on county go free because he supposedly doesn't have the resources for a case that won’t grab national headlines, and has give speeches at Dem Fundraisers singling out his prosecution of Delay while supposedly secret Grand Jury testimony was going on. I doubt these charges have merit.
