Upwards of 20 years in jail for accepting bribes. The only charge they found him not guilty was on accepting a bribe of 10000 dollars.

He may not be called “Democrat” since he is a former “Republican”.

Just to be a contrarian, I see many of the charges were that he received consulting payments after he left office, and they said they were really rewards for favorable treatment.

Didn’t see the trial but not quite as direct as getting a bribe when in office, unless he was still using connections to help them. Still that’s not as direct, is it?

It’s pure racism, that’s what it is. He should complain to the mayor.

"Justice is done."

Hold the applause for the sentencing phase, folks. The judge could impose minimum sentence, and suspend all but six months. If not, there's always the possibility of a Presidential pardon in two years.

Yeah he gets chocolate but not the kind he will want.
Poor "W" you just know he feels bad about causing all this trouble for the X-Mayor. . . .

The irony here is he passed on a plea deal and failed hard. He apparently makes bad decisions.

according to the ‘rat Senator who was asked why they didn’t use them to evacuate the city.
