Tom DeLay: Liberals Sentenced Me To Jail (VIDEO)
Restricted money goes out, unrestricted money comes back – the very definition of “money laundering”. DeLay either is lying or he does not believe that the law applies to him. I am quite certain that DeLay and his lawyer are familiar with the concept of money laundering.
DeLay makes pejorative statements about the court and the jury foreman, then claims he is not criticizing the jury. Might as well ask how hard it was for the prosecutor to find a court that was not biased in favor of republicans. Or maybe the grand jury “just sworn in” was the only one not yet corrupted? (Is there a standing Grand Jury, or are they all “just sworn in”?)
He was prosecuted because he was so successful in redistricting Texas? The republicans were so successful that the courts found they had illegally disenfranchised an entire segment of the voters.
Political prosecution? Political crime!
They claim that he was prosecuted because the Democrats turned people against politicians and Washington? Spin, Spin, Spin. Project, Project, Project. Lie, Lie, Lie.
There was no corporate money, except that Citizens United made it legal, except that the ruling was not in effect at the time of the crime, except … Their arguments are all over the map because they have no moral compass.
They will delay and appeal until political change gives him a free pass. It’s what Microsoft did ten years ago.
Do you think he will ever spend a day in jail?
No. Simply because the Court of Criminal Appeals is an elected court, it’s all Republican, it’s highly political. It’s known as a prosecutors’ court, but in this case I would bet that they’re going to rule for the defendant. The Third Court of Appeals, where the appeal will start, is also a Republican court.
