A Travis County Texas grand jury today indicted U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay on a single count of felony criminal conspiracy involving an exchange of money that made corporate cash available to Republican Texas House candidates in 2002. Corporate cash is a NO NO..and Tommy knew that.
The indictment alleges that DeLay conspired with two of his political cronies, John Colyandro of Austin and Jim Ellis of Virginia, to convert $190,000 in corporate money into individual campaign contributions through a transfer of funds using the Republican National Committee to launder the funds.
Colyandro and Ellis last year were indicted on a money laundering charge involving the transfer. They were reindicted earlier this month to add a criminal conspiracy charge each.
TRMPAC,DeLay’s Texans for a Republic Majority Action Committee, raised and spent almost $650,000 in corporate money to influence the 2002 Texas House races. State law restricts the use of corporate and labor union money in races for elective office.
Being under indictment Delay must now resign his office of Majority Leader..Praise Jesus..there is justice for all..including the Repub’s 🙂 for a good read on all the crap that Tommy has pulled and got nailed for..read the Slate article..it ranks his escapades on the “Stench” and “Trouble” scale..this one indictment really stinks LOL..
First off, do NOT tell me he had no clue about the impending announcement. His friggin brother is Chairman of the company, not to mention its a family company period. When your company is going to announce it didn’t hit its numbers for the preceeding quarter all upper brass know this, hell most of the company does. I know, I have worked for publicly held companies. He sold his shares in HCA, a gigantic hospital conglomeration, five days before the announcement, which by the way saw the stock drop ten percent immediately. He is back-peddaling now and saying he put this sale in the works three months ago. Billy Bob is from Tennessee, and evidently thinks the American populus will buy this bullshit hands down. I am praying to God they wont. Frist said in past statements that the blind trusts he created to hold his assets kept him ignorant about his HCA stake and other investments. Yeah, but come on now..your brother just treated you like a mushroom did he now? Kept you in the dark and fed you bullshit dude?
This is so hot that Chris Cox, head of the S.E.C. has recused himself from the investigation..what does he know and why is he running as far away from this as possible? makes ya wonder don’t it?
Being a member of the left wing nut jobs since I was a teenager, I have been waiting for this to begin..I knew it would, I hoped Cindy would be a part of it, and it makes me sad that I can not take part in these demonstrations of free speech..I am too old and too physically screwed(two blown discs in my lower back)to take part in our right to protest this illegal war. The foreign press is covering her arrest more so than the talking heads from America..It was a dumb move on the part of Bushie to arrest her, gave her lots of media exposure..but I don’t expect brains and intelligence out of this bunch of nimrods running our country.
When I did a google search on the words “cindy sheehan arrested” I got one National write up by ABC news..the rest were foreign writeups..sadly I think this is so fucked up..but what can you expect when Kate Moss’s coke habit gets more coverage than Frist’s bullshit..
The bastard will make up his mind in a few days they say..help him out by telling him what you think about it..
