Once again I risk the revocation of my membership in the VRWC by not following the subliminal commands sent out by the mothership but I like living dangerously.

     Tom "The Hammer" Delay's current woes are of his own making. Delay is one of those Congressmen who exude the "Old Boy" aroma from every pore and I am happy to see him step down from his leadership position in the House and I would be even happier to see him resign from Congress altogether and perhaps even show some spine by copping to the charges against him. Tom Delay was and is a "divider not a uniter" who made people with any conservative political views whatsoever look bad through association.

     So look to other blogs for anti-left screeds about how "Delay was set-up" or what have you. He knew damn well that he was violating the spirit of the law here and went on anyway. Way to set an ethical example Tom, well captained... you assclown. Reap it Tommy, reap it.

Keep your membership.  What odds are you going to give me that this gets tossed before deliberation?  Or that it ends in acquittal?

Good ole boy?  Sure.  Last I heard, that was not illegal.

Odds are good that one of those outcomes will hold true. Doesn't excuse the unethical behavior though. Delay is big on personal responsibility and ethical norms. While his actions here were not outright illegal they sure as hell weren't ethical.

If DeLay get caught wither breaking the law or breaking the spirit of the law, or found guilty of enethical behavior, he MUST GO!

Can you detail those?  I am not being combative, but I would like to see what you feel is unethical.

Finding creative ways of money routing in order to circumvent the sort of political finance reform law that your own party espouses meets my definition of both "unethical" and "hypocritical". Delay is a master of this crap but the very hot 2002 Texas race seems to have made him a bit careless regarding the timing of this one.

While I am glad about the 02 election results, I am unhappy to see them tarnished with this sort of backdoor fundraising horseshit.

Yup, if he is guilty let the legal and political chips fall where they may. However, if he isn't, let Earle sink in his own rhetoric. As long as were at it, why should the investigation of campaign finance stop on his lap, the ball is rolling, I say that there should be a House (and Senate) cleaning. If he broke the law, and what he did was not uncommon in Washington... Swing that ax and watch the Chips fly!!

Does anyone really believe that if Delay is guilty of this he is alone?

Also, just think what could be accomplished if State AGs and DAs would but this much zeal into cleaning up voter and election fraud!! Of course, in the Democrats in this state are against that, since many of them owe their jobs to voter fraud. ;~D

This is also one of the problems with how we've allowed the house and senate to become so national and party driven. Congressman DeLay's actions should be the concern of the people of his district. Democrats are trying to make this out to be a Republican thing, and a black eye on Prs. Bush. Like Prs. Bush appointed him or something. Just goes to show that the crime to which he stands accused is only part of the motivation here.

Nope. The amounts of cash involved in this sort of stuff are just too tempting.

So you hate the 527s as well?  I think he did the same, but that is for each to decide.  Thank you for your response.  I dont much like moveon.org, but I will not question their right to exist.

God yes. 527's just make it worse than it was.

You are not a politician!

You ARE an Honorable man.

Thank you.

Does anyone think McCain-Fiengold Campaign Finance Reform was good legislation anymore? What "reform" did it accomplish?

I think it had a good intent... just didn't work hard enough at the loopholes. Fact of the matter is that without banning private contributions (necessitating federal money for campaigning *blech*) there really is not a good way to stop crap like this. Unless you count altruism as an effective counter-measure. (If you do think altruism is a good solution please email me for a special deal on some land I have)

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.  Sorry, that and 50 cents will get you a cup of coffee.  It will not get you anything else.

I don't doubt Delay has done iffy things, but like he says I don't think they are a bit different than what both parties do on a daily basis. Does that excuse it? Nope.

Watch this prosecutor. The last time he couldn't make a case stick, he refused to show his evidence in court because he feared the judge wouldn't allow it. Then when the judge threw the case out he invited reporters and showed the evidence to them.

Look at his quotes about this case. This isn't a prosecutor looking into a case of wrongdoing, this is a guy bent on taking someone down and hunting to find a tool to do it.

Is Delay corrupt? I don't think he's a stich more so than any other major politician. I think if this prosecutor was truly interested in crimes, he'd have a LOT more on his plate than one big name every few years.
