@procuradorfiscalI stand corrected on Karl Rove. I mis-read an
article. You guys really need to relax. There's plenty of
corruption on both sides and BTW, I think Karl Rove is a political hack, but
that's not a crime. It has made him a very, very rich man.
Re: "Karl Rove - never served a day for mail fraud."Seems
somehow appropriate, since he's never been accused or convicted of mail
fraud.Only liberals, like Obama "Justice" Department
appointees and CHS 85, would be upset that innocent political opponents are not
@Mounta(i)nmanDid you forget Nixon - full pardonSpiro Agnew -

never served a day for mail fraudshall I go on?
Republican crooks go to jail while Democrat crooks get advanced: Hillary
(cattlegate, whitewater missing documents) Clinton, Ted (car in river) Kennedy,
Wm (cold cash) Jefferson, Bill (never had sex with an intern) Clinton,and Barney
(prostitution ring) Frank, just to name a few.
Russian oil executives contributions, 1998House Ethics reprimand for K
Street scandal, 1999Misuse of federal investigative agencies, 2003Jack Abramoff scandal, 2000 - presentI guess these were all just
"politcally motivated" scandals as well?As my grandpa used
to say "where there's smoke there's fire."
procuradorfiscal - oh well, if it is all over the place and common....well by
all means lets just turn a blind eye to these activities. In fact, we should do
that with all kinds of crimes, in all places...Truth - What about
Rengle? What in the heck was that supposed to mean? Ok, I will play, Oliver
North...... your turn.....
Re: "I just wish that DeLay had been made to serve all of his
sentence."He'll never serve another day. This was a Stalinesque
political show trial. Nothing more.Given the Supreme Court's widely
known views regarding the right of government to limit a corporation's
contribution to the political discussion, the appeal won't even make it as far
as the Supreme Court.Notwithstanding, millions in taxpayer dollars
and untold hours of government employee time has been spent on this naked
political retribution.Delay is a politician, so it goes without
saying that a close examination of his dealings would reveal unsavory
transactions. But prosecuting him for a transaction of the type that is a
common feature on the US political landscape only reveals the depth of hypocrisy
that reigns in Washington.
How about Scooter Libby? Was that investigation just politically motivated. He
didn't really out a CIA agent either? Tom Delay, Scooter Libby and
the like are fall guys for the Bush crime family but they get off the hook in
the end. I'm sure they'll be rewarded hansomely later.
He was actually a really great Member of Congess. I think this was politically
motivated and I hope it is overturned.
Almost like a pardon for Texas Justice.
This is a step in the right direction. I just wish that DeLay had been made to
serve all of his sentence. Three years (most likelyin Club-Fed) is just a slap
on the wrist.
