Excellent Background & Current Articles DB on DeLay & TRMPAC Indictments
Please remember these are Texas State Charges, Not Federal Charges. Also this is a single State charge against DeLay, on one single transaction, and not the indictment the DA (Dem) wanted in this GJ investigation. In fact, we were told late last week, before Hurricane Rita hit us here in Houston, that the GJ was not going to indict DeLay on this single charge.

The DA had to "fall-back" to this current indictment charge, when he couldn't prove the primary charges he had against DeLay. It wasn't the DA's fault here. He has experiences massive interference and threats from the Papa Bush Texas Family Mafia. Even if the DA nails DeLay in court on this one single charge, on one single transaction, net-net DeLay would only serve 6-8 months in a State low security prison.

This is probably the line of BushCo spin you are going to hear. Spin will continue to be - Totally Dem DA politically motivated charge to dishonor DeLay and DeLay will beat the charge in a Texas (Very Rep Jury) State Court. BushCo will NOT abandon DeLay like they did Brownie, for the simple reason they can't without criminally risking exposure of other BushCo Texas Mafia members.

You're only seeing the tip of the iceberg in this BushCo corruption web!

3. This Thread Shows How Bad the GOP In-Fighting is Getting-READ
My thread on the subject was combined with the below thread and is half way down the page.

This event didn't get much notice in the press, but is a BIG deal! A number of things going on, but a number of big GOPers are getting sick of BushCo trying to drag down other Republicans they don't like.

In this situation the huge Republican 527 "Club for Growth" has been using serious money to try and drag down ranking Republican Senator Arlen Specter (R - PA). All the major Club for Growth donors are Papa Bush Family Mafia members that go back 25 years. The big donors are the same ones that funded the Swift Boat scam against Kerry, that was run out of Dallas and Houston and they pumped $5 million into the scam. Tom DeLay is also right in the middle of it and his PAC that just got indicted has been contributing to the Club for Growth.

The Republican Vice Chairman of the FEC, and other ranking Reps, finally said enough was enough of this crap and went after Club for Growth last week in a filed Federal lawsuit.
