News of the weird

In a bizarre publicity stunt, Delay attorney Dick DeGuerin sent a letter to prosecutor Ronnie Earle claiming that the prosecutor tried to get the indicted former Majority Leader to plead guilty to a misdemeanor so that he could retain his leadership post, the Associated Press reports.

"Before the first indictment you tried to coerce a guilty plea from Tom DeLay for a misdemeanor, stating the alternative was indictment for a felony which would require his stepping down as majority leader of the United States House of Representatives," DeGuerin wrote.

"He turned you down flat so you had him indicted, in spite of advice from others in your office that Tom DeLay had not committed any crime," the lawyer contended. "In short, neither lack of evidence nor lack of law has deterred you."

Huh?

  • Geez, that sounds so bad of Mr Earle.... Welcome to the criminal courts system Mr. Delay. This is the way it works. Earle did what prosecutors do everyday. Don't like it, Mr. Delay? Well I am reminded of Mr. Dershowitz's saying that a liberal is a conservative who has been indicted. May I assume, you will be changing parties soon?

  • Uhh exscuse me Delay, but prosecution is supposed to offer a plea-bargain in return for reduced sentence.

    So the case still has no legal merit? Is the best garbage Delay's defense team has?

    Meanwhile he is being booked for Travis County jail, for out-right term set and to get his fingerprints.

  • Wait a minute....

    The advertisements from the alleged Free Enterprise Fund

    Free Enterprise Fund

    These are the same guys smearing Ronnie Earle saying he has a baseless case.....

    Jack Kemp runs this place?

    But wait, is this the same Jack Kemp who was involved in the Oil for Food scandal that reached into the VP's office?

    Jack Kemp probed by FBI in Oil for Food..

    Well it sure looks that way to me....Someone might be wide open to RICO charges!!!!

    Kemp is the same guy smearing Earle, someone who's broken the law already?! Interesting!!!

  • Well, that's S.O.P for his junkyard-dog approach to politics - the best defense is a good offense. Attack, attack, attack.
