Bloomberg news has two indictments

There's going to be some confusion before all is said and done, but Jonathan Salant and Darrell Preston from Bloomberg report that the grand jury in Travis County has issued two new indictments:

DeLay, 58, who faces up to two years in prison on a conspiracy charge filed last week, was indicted on two counts of money laundering today, said a spokesman for Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle.

We'll have to wait for a little bit to get the straight story on this... One of these indictments may be a "clean up job" from the one issued last week. But what's the other? Since there are two indictments, the DeLay people did a good job spinning the Statesman, which lead with the problems with last week's grand jury indictment.


  • DeLay is just another Texas crony. The crap he helped pull off with the re-districting in Texas is just another example of money buying politics. He needs to be pulled down like the pig (ass, donkey, you pick your own term) that he is. If you're from Texas, you probably love him: If you're not (and don't see what he is doing), you're ignorant.

  • Isn't the RNC an accessory to this money laundering scheme?

  • Some of us from Texas actually despise Tom DeLay. We have been hearing stories about him for years.

    Same goes for Karl Rove.

  • I find it curious that rather than declare his innocence, Tom DeLay is attacking the statute that he allegedly violated. It doesn't take a rocket scientist ----or even a high school graduate to "see" that he hasn't a leg to stand on against the allegations. How sad that he insults the people's intelligence by trying to find cover under the fluff and doesn't even address the actual issue.

  • Most of Texas is fed up with me!

    I've become the posterboy for corruption in Washington.

    Don't like my way of business, then screw you!

    I can have corporations donate to me exclusively!

    Then they can do me favors, and I will do favors for them and make sure pollution screws up the environment and I make billions of dollars.

    The only thing that matters is me, and my friends who get rich.

    Who cares about constituents? They didn't do anything for me, the corporations pay for my house baby!

    Tom Delay

  • When Delay does (perhaps)go on trial and is found guilty,he will undoubtedly take all of his appeals clear up to the Supreme Court where Bush or more probably Karl Rove has seen fit to apoint the new Justice who was once alligned with Delay in Texas. Waste of Taxpayers money!!

  • Do any of you honestly believe that the Democrats are any less corrupt? They are the ones screaming the loudest and generally the loudest are trying to cover up what they are doing themselves. All the politicians in this country are suspect due to the huge amounts of money available to them. Both parties currently suck. The Democrats whine and complain without any plan and the Republicans have the power to implement change and are too afraid to do it. It's time for a third party.

  • The Democrats aren't even 20% as corrupt as the current Republicans, hooo boy.......

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:51 PM  

  • Let's back up that 20% figure with some actual facts. The Democrats and the Republicans share a 50/50 when it comes to corruption. All politicians go where the money is. Democrats are just as guilty as the Republicans. Just because the media is talking Republicans at the moment, doesn't mean the Democrats are innocent. Honest politicians are very hard to find. Money and power corrupts absolutely and politicians are the easiest to corrupt. Both parties have major problems and are only worried about getting re-elected. Democrats are whiny cry-babies and Republicans are gutless. Start paying attention to what is really going on and you might see the light. None of our political parties give a damn about you and I. They only care about themselves. Pay attention and read between the lines and you might actually see what is really going on.

  • By the way, Delay will never be found guilty of anything that has to do with the current indictments. They are all bogus based on crap from a Democratic political hack. That doesn't mean he hasn't done anything wrong, it just means no one will be able to prove it in a court of law. Remember that we live in a country where you are innocent until proven guilty. Don't believe the crap in the media because you want to. It won't get you what you want. The Mainstream Media omits facts on a regular basis. That's how they keep it interesting. Facts don't matter to them, only ratings and readership matter to the MSM. Our MSM lies and omits on a regular basis. They try to fool the majority, but don't be stupid enough to let them fool you. That is what they are counting on.

  • Hey moron, here's your facts:

    Jack In The House

    There isn't any democrats there is there?

    That's what I thought, only 3 democrats. There is alot less democrats who are corrupt to this level, ALOT less, and if you want to talk you better walk. Clean up the whole place starting with Delay, who laundered money through the RNC, against racketeering clauses.

  • Yes, let's focus only on one Lobbyist. Let's forget about the MANY democrat scandals. How about Sandy Burgler stealing national security documents? Yeah, the democrats are spotless! Please!
