(CNN) – A Texas jury on Wednesday convicted former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay on charges of illegally funneling corporate money to help elect GOP candidates to the Texas legislature.
DeLay was found guilty on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering, said jury bailiff Gilbert Soto.
There you go.
HALLELUJAH! There is hope for the world after all!
The number two man in the republican culture of corruption is finally dealt a fate worse than DWTS. Let up hope his sentence sends a message to the rest of the republican money launderers.
The "Hammer" got nailed.
Sorry about that, but DeLay's conviction is very much deserved.
Wow funneling corporate money to (R) candidates, say it aint so. Time to wheel John Andrew Boehner in next for handing out Brown and Williamson cash to (R) Senators on the floor.
I guess there still is some justice in the world.
Finally, Justice served.
The supreme court has made money laundering and conspiracy to money launder legal for corporations as long as it helps GOPs.
Ha! His expression is priceless.
Looks like "the hammer" just got nailed!
And this is the party CNN is working hard to put back into power.
THERE IS A GOD AFTER ALL, and she was in Texas today...
...cant you hear the Angels in Heaven rejoicing? Like e phoenix song, it warms you up from the inside...
Now the fun begins. Delay will have to cut a deal stay out of the pokey, and that means dropping dime on his fellow Republicans. Rats stew anyone?
Its a good start, now lets get the rest of the crooks on charges, especially the Governor. Not to mention Bush for Iran Contra and his son for war crimes. More than enough to go around with the GOP.
It's about time!
Aw !! Poor Tom !! He couldn't buy this jury off.
I hope he gets a stiff sentence but knowing how things go for people with money I won't hold my breath.
couldn't have happened to a more deserving fellow!
