Former Republican House Leader Convicted

One of the biggest stories breaking over Thanksgiving vacation was that Tom DeLay, former U.S. Rep. and House majority leader for the Republicans, was convicted in state court of money laundering related to violation of state campaign funding laws. He plans to appeal. LINK


  1. DeLay's actions were apparently standard operating procedure for the Beltway's elitist political machine. Was he aware Texans' trust was being violated when he bypassed the states campaign finance laws via DC's politics as usual corruption? Common sense would say yes. Although he's taking the brunt of charges made against him, DeLay and his GOP are certainly not the only culprits. Democrats have proven to be just as dirty if not more guilty of such behavior.

  2. 44: Thanks for the comment. We frequently criticize other countries for their political corruption. We need to pay more attention to our own. Just another example of the poor quality people American voters put in office.

  3. Ray,
    The anti-federalist in me couldn't agree more with your insight. Thanks, 44
