About the DeLay indictment…
It’s not just spin that the D. A. behind the indictment of Rep. Tom DeLay has a history of acting in a highly partisan manner. When I heard the indictment came from Travis Co., a light bulb went off. I looked it up, and, sure enough, the indictment comes from one Ronnie Earle.
Ronnie Earle has a long-standing reputation of being a highly partisan Democrat and of issuing indictments accordingly. Among his targets has been Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson, a case that so went down in flames the judge went beyond dismissal to have the jury issue a Not Guilty verdict so Ronnie couldn’t bring the case back.
Not only that, but Earle is in no position to throw stones about alleged corruption. Much more at the Captain’s Quarters.
