He doesn’t. This is 6 years to late. He needed to fight them hard.. he didn’t.
of course he was aquitted
now.....when will charges be pressed against the DA and all those that trumped up these charges for polical reasons....let see the Republican Governor of Texas have the scumbag arrested.
I am waiting for this story to appear on the front page of the Washington Post and the New York Times. Hah.
I will remember him for doing nothing to limit growth in spending at the Federal Govt. level.....
I know Delay. He did fight them hard. He's off clean. What would you have suggested?
Republicans will never learn. They let the rats walk all over them for fear of the media.... and they win every time.
Agreed. I believe it was he DeLay who stated that there was "nothing" in the federal budget that could be cut.
Lead story on tonight’s Nightly News with Brian Whatsizname.
well now we know why he turned into such a deomocrat
oops wrong dude..just woke up
Sons of mongrel female dogs. All of them.
dancing with the stars?
republicans never do. there should be an investigation of
why fbi went after curt weldon two weeks before
election allowing sestak to win. weldon was way ahead until
fbi announced investigation. soros/clinton had it in
for weldon and then this happened. after election, all news
and investigation was dropped. same thing with cia going
after scooter libby.
The DA in question (Ronnie Earle) is a POS RAT operative that is quite safe in his office. The county seat is Austin with is the Texas version of Berkeley.
A state case continues in Texas, with a hearing scheduled for Aug. 24. A trial is expected next spring, and could last several weeks.
Democrats... masters of the obvious.
