Prof Bainbridge on the DeLay indictment
Professor Bainbridge points out
that Tom Delay will be both prosecuted (or is that persecuted) and defended by Democrats from his reading of a Tom Kirkendall posting
on the matter. There is a lot of good analysis on this sham indictment all over the internet. This is the only one I found that was genuinely funny.
By the way, Mr. DeLay has purchased a first-rate defense team, which includes well-known Houston defense attorney, Dick DeGuerin. You may recall that Mr. DeGuerin recently obtained a rather extraordinary acquittal for a client who had far more difficult problems than Mr. DeLay does.
Finally, Dick DeGuerin -- like Mr. Earle, the prosecutor -- is a Democrat. So, one of the leading Republicans in the U.S. Congress is going to be prosecuted and defended by Democrats.
