A defiant DeLay insisted he was innocent and called the prosecutor a “fanatic.”

“I have done nothing wrong … I am innocent,” DeLay told a Capitol Hill news conference in which he criticized the prosecutor, Ronnie Earle, repeatedly. DeLay called Earle an “unabashed partisan zealot” and a “fanatic.”
