    Oh, great. Now we have to pay for The Hammer to live a cushy life in prison.

    Does this mean redistricting in TX will now be done by Democrats as part of the penalty?

    This is why I despise Tom DeLay:

    Al Franken recounts the story in greater detail in one of his books, including the women who work in these sweatshops being forced to have abortions. And DeLay defended that.

    Let him rot in prison.

    The commercials almost write themselves.

    *GOP Candidate* stands with big business not us; just look at his close ties to the convicted felon and big business money launderer, Tom Delay.

    Yep i'm reviving this thread.

    Probably you all know his 2010 conviction had been appealed and was overturned last fall. But today the AP reports that the highest criminal court in Texas will hear the prosecution's appeal of the overturn.

    So the fat lady has not sung yet. Time flies. If he'd gone to the slam when he was sentenced, he'd be out now, the jerk.
