DeLay is sentenced to three years
finally catches up to dirty, lousy crook
"You mean I have to let large Black
men have sex with me for three years?"
Tom, you don't have to
"let them" do anything - they'll take what they want from you.
...and there's no crooked president to pardon your guilty ass,
Former House Majority Leader Tom
DeLay was sentenced Monday to three years in prison
for his role in a money-laundering scheme that helped crooked
Republicans reshape Texas politics.
State District Judge Pat Priest rejected a defense request for
probation and said he agreed with
a jury's November verdict that DeLay illegally helped funnel $190,000
in corporate money to
Republican candidates for the Texas Legislature in 2002, a violation of
state law. That money
helped the crooked GOP gain control of the Texas House, a power the
party used to redraw
congressional boundaries following a plan DeLay helped engineer.
DeLay, whose swagger and sharp elbows made him the biggest dick in
remained unapologetic at his sentencing.
Addressing the court before his sentence was read, he acknowledged he
was both arrogant
and passionate to the point of appearing angry at times, but said he
did not violate the law.
He blamed his travails on the criminalization of politics and selective
"Judge, I can't be
remorseful for something I don't think I did," he said.
The Pardon and Parole Board LOVES an unrepentant criminal.
A shot of Chinaco for Texas justice!
