There's No 'There' There

In going through the DeLay indictment, I can’t find anything that ties Majority Leader Tom DeLay directly to any charge.  DeLay’s name is not linked to a single act. There’s no specificity whatsoever. The document mentions his name on the front and then at the end it cites a couple of indictment waivers signed by DeLay. That’s it.

Taken on face value, it appears that Tom DeLay is guilty of knowing two other guys.

Now, before you jump all over me I do understand that indictments are not required to list all of the evidence and facts of the case. But if you’re the district attorney who is going to put the slam on a powerful congressman and you know that delivering an indictment will create a media firestorm, wouldn’t you want to list a least a few charges against him that carry weight?

Does County District Attorney Ronnie Earle really think he won’t have to explain his reasons for indicting Tom DeLay?

The MSM and the Left are absolutely giddy over this. They’re hand in hand singing “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead!” I wonder how many of them have read the actual indictment document? If they have, I’d like them to point me to the spot in the document where DeLay is directly linked to the charge against him.

I’ll put forth this prediction – Ronnie Earle will delay the actual trial for as long as possible. Years probably. History plays this out. The case he brought against Kay Bailey Hutchinson was only kept alive long enough to derail her first Senate campaign.

Let’s get the facts behind this charge publicized quickly, then we can debate substance. Right now, with this flimsy indictment, we’ve got nothing.

    from page 2: “…the defendents herein, with the intent that a felony be commited, did enter into an agreement with one or more of each other or with a general purpose political commitee known as Texans for a Republican Majority PAC that one or more of them would engage in conduct that would constitute the offense of knowingly making a political contribution in violation of Sections 253.003 and 253.094 and 253.104 of the election code…”

    You’re apologizing already?

  2. Show me…

    Where is the information about DeLay entering into a conspiracy? Where is the information about DeLay committing acts in furtherance of a conspiracy?
