Delay - This Is Serious
I wondered when some bright mind would wake up and charge Delay with laundering. And here we go.
The Ronnie Earle conspiracy charge is complete silliness and a waste of taxpayer money. But if the laundering charge is true, it's real trouble. This is perhaps the easiest allegation to understand. It is alleged that DeLay received corporate money for TRMPAC, sent it to the RNC, which returned the funds to TRMPAC, which then sent the money to Texas candidates for office. The problem is that corporations can't donate to the campaigns of candidates in Texas, but the national party can. If Delay has his prints on the checks, or the transactions happened at his orders, there are indeed problems in store.
