Ok neo-cons, stop with the "Earle is doing all this" defense, and understand a jury decided there was evidence of a crime.In an effort to contrive jurisdiction over DeLay, Earle charges that because Congressman DeLay may have known about the transaction before it occurred, he was then part of a conspiracy.
However, Earle's office has sworn testimony and other exculpatory evidence showing that Congressman DeLay did not have knowledge of the transaction.
Jim Ellis and John Colyandro were agents for the corporations and meet every test as such. They were, in effect, subcontractors used to ensure the funds went where Sear's and ITT and others wanted the money to go.No corporation or labor organization was indicted in this conspiracy. Neither Jim Ellis nor John Colyandro is a corporation or labor organization.
Um...yeah...because the way you launder corporate money in TX is to pass 190,000 to the PAC, and a different 0,000 – from a separate, noncorporate account – is then distributed to state political candidates. The later met the time test, I think.No corporation or labor organization made a contribution during 60 days of an election.
Huh? So then it is broadly defined? My guess is cold hard cash would fit a strict or broad definition. Not like they funneled a cow thru some PAC.What constitutes a contribution under the Texas Election Code is not strictly defined.
This was rejected by Judge Hart in the civil case. Stare decisis says it will lose again. A concept you guys like, I thought.Neither the RNC nor RNSEC constitute a political party under Texas election law. They are considered PACs, just as the DNC is. Corporations in Texas could have legally made contributions to the RNC or RNSEC during the period in question under Texas election law.
There was no violation of the Texas Election Code. There was no conspiracy. The underlying transaction was legal. Had corporations sent money directly to the RNC or RNSEC, the transaction would be legal. How could anyone conspire to do indirectly what could legally have been done directly?
Don't be, in the reality of things, Texas would be considered a 'light blue" state. I was not until DeLay's ILLEGAL redistricting of the state that the Texas Legislature had a Republican Majority, the FIRST time since reconstruction....drnewel wrote: I am suprised that a Texas grand jury would do this?
Ms Parrot, I suggest you close your mouth about things you know NOTHING ABOUT except your ReichWing Talking Points.Cherry Kelly wrote: Rommie -- stop making false statements about "illegal" stuff when you have no proof other than your personal opinion. Redistricting is often done to reflect the population changes -- just look at some of your DEM states and see where it also exists... odd now isn't it unless you want to call what the DEMS do to redistrict as illegal as well.

ask yourself why it took Earle until the 6th grand jury to get an indictment... matter of record he tried WITH THE SAME "evidence" and all prior grand juries threw it out. bit odd don't you think??
