3. His version of Nixon's 'checkers speech'?
"Richard Nixon's Checkers speech

"We did get something, a gift, after the election... It was a little cocker spaniel... our little girl, Tricia, the six-year-old, named it Checkers... I just want to say this right now, that regardless of what they say about it, we're gonna keep it."

(Los Angeles, California,
September 23, 1952)

Senator Richard M. Nixon of California, the Republican candidate for the vice presidency, appeared on national television to defend himself against reports that he had kept a "secret fund" of $18,000 to underwrite his political expenses as senator.

This comes years before he would be dubbed "Tricky Dicky."

Nixon claimed the fund was used for normal politcal expenses, and Eisenhower stood by him. The only political "gift" he received was this cocker spaniel, Checkers. Thus the nationally televised address in which Nixon proclaimed his innocence was dubbed the "Checkers" speech..."

8. Delay blasts Ronnie Earle
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 01:48 PM by ticapnews
the case is sham

Earle has been engaged in a campaign of retribution

it is "revenge" for the Texas reapportionment

singled out for political attack...

adding as it continues:

I have done nothing wrong. Nothing unethical. Nothing illegal.

"rogue prosecutor"

Tweety inventing words: Has Delay been "neuterized"

11. Did he mention anything in their about the Texas Grand Jury
who were the actual ones to indict him? Are they all partisan? Do they all have an agenda against him? Are they all "rogue jurors"?

9. data on "partisan" Ronnie Earle!

PHOTO OF RONNIE EARLE

NOTE DATE ON STORY BELOW....

DeLay's first line of defense will be to scream that the Democrat Earle is on a partisan witch hunt. Earle's unsuccessful prosecution of Kay Bailey Hutchison in 1994 for allegations of misappropriated campaign funds while she was State Treasurer will be his Exhibit A, and it will carry some weight. Earle will point out that he's prosecuted quite a few Democratic politicians in his day, with his biggest scalp being that of former Speaker Gib Lewis. I will expect much sound and fury, with the usual results. But I'll keep an eye on it anyway, just in case.
