Tom Delay GUILTY!

by: DocJess

Wed Nov 24, 2010 at 18:31:34 PM EST

Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay – once one of the most powerful and feared Republicans in Congress – was convicted Wednesday on charges he illegally funneled corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.

Jurors deliberated for 19 hours before returning guilty verdicts against DeLay on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering. He faces up to life in prison on the money laundering charge. - HuffPost

Yes, that's right. GUILTY. In Texas. Normally I find their sentences too harsh, but not this time. I hope he gets the max. And yes, that is his mug shot, the original. I like to look at it every once in a while to remind me that some people LIKE being criminals.

Tom Delay, felon. Yet another thing to be thankful for....

Michelle Malkin remains silent on her blog... (0.00 / 0)
She crusades around as a blogger exposing corruption, namely corrupt politicians (Maxine Waters ethics trial, Charlie Rangel ethics trial, etc.) yet when it comes to notable republican figures she is silent.

This story is as big as it gets when it comes to politics and corruption in politics, yet Ms. Malkin remains silent.

Yes, the terrorist bomber from recent news does command coverage, but the Tom Delay story occurred well before this story and deserves a blog post from her, or so I'd expect...

But she is well known for this...a big republican corruption scandal breaks and instead of writing about that she just writes about the latest in terrorism or fear in the news.
