Warrant Out For Delay

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A state court issued an arrest warrant on Wednesday for Rep. Tom DeLay, requiring him to appear in Texas for booking on state conspiracy and money laundering charges...

The indictments charge that a DeLay-founded Texas political committee sent corporate donations to the Republican National Committee in Washington, and the national party sent funds back to the state for 2002 campaigns.

DeLay has denied wrongdoing and accused Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle - a Democrat - of having partisan motives. Earle has denied the accusation.
We'll see how this plays out, but my guess is that Ronnie Earle is going to be exposed for the cheap opportunist that he is. As I've noted before, Earle's search for recognition will fail and his partisan motivation in his charges will blemish his record forever.
