I have had ethics charges filed starting in 1993
Again in 1995
A racketeering suit right after that
Some more ethics charges right after that
This has been going on for two years, multiple grand juries, and then they come out with an indictment
asked me to come in. Basically what I showed them was, yes, it was my idea to set up this political action committee
It was my idea to set up TRMPAC
I got it all organized
I and four other elected officials were on an advisory board
I went to five fundraisers
They did use my name to raise money
They told me about it later, and then they would tell me things are going well
Jim Ellis also runs my ARMPAC
Jim Ellis would let me know how things were going because was interested in how things are going and how much money they were raising
The point here is is Texas deserved a Republican House of Representatives. The way you got change that was to take the majority in the Texas House, and that was my goal. It was successful
Ronnie Earle let my lawyers know last week that I was going to be indicted
I have hired Dick DeGuerin, who is my lawyer, who is the same lawyer that taught Ronnie Earle a lesson

4. Darn, I missed the Daily Show today.
I'll be sure to watch it tomorrow. Thank God for Jon Stewart! He's spreading the truth one joke at a time.

3. I keep thinking of that quote by Abe Lincoln:
"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."

Oh, and while you're at it, give him some time in front of a camera to incriminate himself. :7

5. Is it just my computer?
The sound is garbled to the point of being useless.

7. It's clear on my computer except for a slight
garbling. Sorry it's not working for you! Luckily, there's a transcript posted.

9. I just restarted my computer, but it's the same damn garbling.
I'm running Firefox 1.0.7 on a Win Xp machine, and never had that problem before, with QT or anything else.

I tried it out on another site w/audio, and it works fine. Here's the one I meant: http://www.aish.com/a/startingover.asp That one is well worth listening to in it's own right, and probably rates a DU posting by itelf. Give it a listen.

6. It seems obvious
that he takes lessons from Rove and George W. Bush.
Stage left.

What a loser. Let's make that a winner.

Sad. I cannot say I'm delighted by the downfall of a fellow human.
But... reap and sow cannot be denied. And now he shall reap.

8. "reap and sow cannot be denied"
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 03:58 AM by lady lib
No it cannot. Even if he manages to slither out of this one somehow, he will eventually be called to account for the people he's hurt. There is no escaping karma.

Edit: It may be obvious, but I'm holding onto that thought to keep myself sane while this ruthless crew is in power.

11. You might be right about slithering out.
That sleazebag can probably call in a lot of IOUs, from powerful people. But even if he manages to "walk", he'll never be the same. A political gelding. The tide is turning. REJOICE!

13. "A political gelding." Excellent description, pnorman.
And I get no small amount of pleasure knowing that he performed the operation on himself!

14. Thanks.
I had to Google to make sure that "gelding" referred to the proper gender!! Clearly, I know as much about horses & cows as does Dubya!

Regards, and be sure to view that website: http://www.aish.com/a/startingover.asp (I should have made a separate DU posting of it).
