Tom DeLay Indicted By Texas Grand Jury!!

A Texas grand jury charged Rep. Tom DeLay and two political associates, with conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme, forcing the House Majority Leader to temporarily step aside, relinquishing his post!
The indictment accused DeLay of a conspiracy to "knowingly make a political contribution" in violation of Texas law outlawing corporate contributions. It alleged that DeLay's Texans for a Republican Majority political action committee accepted $155,000 from companies including Sears Roebuck, and placed the money in an account.
The PAC then wrote a check for $190,000 to an arm of the Republican National Committee and provided the committee a document with the names of Texas State House candidates and the amounts they were supposed to recieved in donations. The indictment included a copy of the check.
DeLay and other Republicans dismissed the charges as politically motivated by Democrats. (no surprise there!)
House Minority Leader Nancy Pilosi of California said, " The criminal indictment of Majority Leader Tom DeLay is the latest example that Republicans in congress are plagued by a culture of corruption at the expense of the American people."
--This administration is corrupt in Oh-so-many-ways. It's run on big money from big corporations fueled by power and greed, with a radical Christian agenda. The hypocrisy in the White House is out of control. They are constantly pointing out other countries corruptions,etc-but this country is being ran the same way. The Republicans only know how to play dirty and feel no shame in doing so, ironically praising Jesus along the way.
They are wounded. We need to keep punching until they stay down.
