It's Recess-time Somewhere

Oh Mommy! Oh Daddy! I Do Believe in Santa Claus!*

And so it has come to pass... Tom DeLay is indicted on two new and exciting charges. Money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering. Shame, shame on him. Bad, bad Representative. No soup for you.

A Texas grand jury indicted Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) yesterday for
alleged involvement in money-laundering related to the 2002 Texas
election, raising new and more serious allegations than the conspiracy
charge lodged against the former House majority leader last week.


Looks like Tommy might have made a big oopsie.

Conspiracy to commit money laundering can bring up to 20 years in the pokey and money laundering can bring up to life in the pokey. And from what I understand, there is a reason they call it "the pokey."

According to something I read somewhere, it's less likely that Chimpy will pardon him with all these new charges and the un-related investigation into the White House's role in the outing of a CIA operative.

And just so you don't go thinking it's the same witch-hunting grand jury, it's a different one. Not only that, but it only took them only one day to decide to indict. Must be pretty damning evidence, ya think?

Craig McDonald, director of Texans for Public Justice, said that
"for a new grand jury to indict DeLay on a day's notice suggests the
evidence of his participation is convincing."


Still think he's gonna get off scott free on this one, Fixer? Are we still too happy?

UPDATE: And in local news, a fella was arrested here in Tampa for spanking a horse. Neeehhhhh!

    Heh heh - you said "pokey"!

    I can't speak for Fixer, just myself, but we've been disappointed before. These clowns pull off some terrific saves sometimes when their asses are on the line.

    Of course, the outcome I want is for DeLay to be celled-up with a 300-lb bald-headed tattooed transvestite biker named Bubba who just loves to "pitch", if you get my meaning.
