Republican House Majority Leader Tom Delay has been indicted on conspiracy charges
. Happy happy. As Travis County (Austin) DA has said for the last 2 yrs, justice can only be achieved by democracy, which only works when the system is representative. Ronnie will also tell you that corporations are not people and should not have more power than the citizenry. It's indisputable now that Delay had some role in the cover-up of the Texans for a Republican Majority's misuse of campaign funds.
Delay's lawyers, including DeGuerrin out of Houston (big name, of course) say the indictment is "skunky" and "stinks to high heaven". I hope voters smell that stink at the mid-term ballot boxes, and remember Frist's SEC scandal, Rove's leaking security information, and all the other corruption running rampant on the right wing. Pelosi gave a great stinger: "The criminal indictment of Majority Leader Tom DeLay is the latest example that Republicans in Congress are plagued by a culture of corruption at the expense of the American people." Has the pendulum swung?
