Moving to protect Majority Leader Tom DeLay, House Republicans want to change party rules to ensure that DeLay retains his post if a Texas grand jury indicts him as it did with three of his political associates.

The House Republican Conference, composed of all GOP members in the chamber, planned to vote Wednesday to modify a requirement that would force DeLay to step aside if charged with a felony requiring at least a two-year prison term.

"If they make this rules change, Republicans will confirm yet again that they simply do not care if their leaders are ethical. If Republicans believe that an indicted member should be allowed to hold a top leadership position in the House of Representatives, their arrogance is astonishing," [Dem. Minority Leader Nancy] Pelosi said.


Please note that the rules in question are internal Republican Party standards, not legal requirements.

It's no secret that DeLay is as crooked as they come. Why doesn't the GOP distance itself from this albatross?

The Travis county prosecuter in this case is as "partisan" as Mikie Moore. These charges are BS. The others "charged" are from a grand jury in a very Lib county. Kay Baily was also charged by this yoyo and the chrages were thrown out by the judge when they got to court.

I find the reference to the SS pretty discussting even for Grandy. Hitler and the Nazi's were "SOCIALIST". The SS is closer to Kerry, Hillary and ALL other libs than to Delay. If your gona sling mud do your research if they didn't teach real history in the schools you attended.

Hows that, facists. Is that better now???? Either way they are scum. You and I do battle all the time, who knows where you went to school. But I would bet one semester where I went cost more in USD than the entire term of your education.

DeLay's gonna go down sooner or later. It's just a matter of time. He's as corrupt as they come.

How is it you think you are so superior there Grandy. Don't be so sure I came from a trailerpark in Arkansas.

Any research into these baseless charges will show complete bias from the "corrupt" libs. Compare "Billyboy" Clinton to anyother president, even Nixon.

There is nothing wrong with comparing Bush to the Nazi party of WWII Germany, the Bush Family was one of the ones financing the Nazis FYI. All this Bruhaha about Clinton is little more than rhetoric, and it may suprise you to find that Clinton was a Bush Family lackey. Don't take my word for it, look up Barry Seal and who was running coke through the state of AK while Clinton was Gov. Look into the nazi ties of the Walker family, Bush's other side of the family tree. Do some research before you go touting the righteousness of the Bush Crime syndicate. Hell we have been under the Bush family rule for a hell of alot longer than most folks realize. The one time Reagan tried to stand up to Bush, Bush family friend Hinckley changed his mind. Bush family has been inthe business of war protifeering since the early days of WWII.

Who exactly doesn't profit from war?
Would this include nation's or strictly business's?
Would France, Germany, China, Russia, etc. fall into this category?

Delay already accepted the admonishments of the Republican led Ethics committee thinking that would be the end of it. It wasn't. Basically admitting wrong-doing doesn't make it go away just because you're the "majority" lawbreaker. And don't blame the complete lack of scruples of the Republican Party on Democrats. Jesus.

These criminals will change any law they can to get away anything they can. The Rule of Law is as meaningless to these traitors as the Constitution. Let's change that while we're at it so Arnie can run for President and we can legally discriminate based on sexual orientation.

And this would be the Party of Values? Laughable.

The family of the man charged with trying to assassinate President Reagan is acquainted with the family of Vice President George Bush and had made large contributions to his political campaign, the Houston Post reported today.



italy.indymedia.org...
John Hinckley, who shot Ronald Reagan, nearly fatally, in 1978, is ready to be released, government psychiatrists testified today. Hinckley's family and the family of President George W. Bush have long, close ties that have been little reported. Hinckley's brother was scheduled to have dinner at the home of the current President Bush's brother the day after the assassination attempt.



www.underreported.com...
Jack Hinckley had been a petroleum engineer in Ardsmore, Okla.,when his son, John Jr., was born on May 29, 1955. When the boy was an infant, the family moved to Dallas. The elder Mr. Hinckley worked for two small oil companies there before starting his own company in 1970, with $120,000 that he borrowed from friends. He called his company Hinckley Oil and later changed the name to the Vanderbilt Energy Corporation.
[...] The eldest Hinckley child, Scott, 30, is the vice president of his father's company and a friend of Neil Bush, the son of Vice President Bush. Scott Hinckley and a date had been invited to dinner at Neil Bushes' home last night, but the dinner was canceled after the shooting.

There's plenty of information out there, knock yourself out..

twitchy, your second photo isn't depleted uranium, for crying out loud.
That's a naturally-occurring disease called Harlequin Ichthyosis.

A little research before you post, please.

Also, don't post photos like that directly into a thread. Use a link and include a graphic content advisory.

I have read much of the "proof" posted before. It is typical leftist spin. Many "Nazi's" came to america during the cold war. One in particular you may not be aware of worked for Nasa. He got us to the moon by designing the Saturn 5 rocket. Point, there are just as many references to Democrats and Nazi's.

The Travis county prosecuter in this case is as "partisan" as Mikie Moore.




In May 2001, Enron's top lobbyists in Washington advised the company chairman that then-House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) was pressing for a $100,000 contribution to his political action committee, in addition to the $250,000 the company had already pledged to the Republican Party that year.

DeLay requested that the new donation come from "a combination of corporate and personal money from Enron's executives," with the understanding that it would be partly spent on "the redistricting effort in Texas," said the e-mail to Kenneth L. Lay from lobbyists Rick Shapiro and Linda Robertson.

The e-mail, which surfaced in a subsequent federal probe of Houston-based Enron, is one of at least a dozen documents obtained by The Washington Post that show DeLay and his associates directed money from corporations and Washington lobbyists to Republican campaign coffers in Texas in 2001 and 2002 as part of a plan to redraw the state's congressional districts.

This case "is only one piece of a much larger picture," said Ronnie Earle, the Travis County district attorney running the investigation. "And the larger picture is a blueprint of what is happening in the country, namely a saturation of the political process by large corporate interests with large amounts of money."

Earle, an elected Democrat who oversees the state's Public Integrity Unit, previously prosecuted four elected Republicans and 12 Democrats for corruption or election law violations.


Partisan scumbag.

I was waiting for the E-word to bubble up. Fact, Enron gave MORE money to Clinton and Gore than any other political carpetbaggers. Delay broke no laws. Earle is on a witch hunt because Delay used resources to hunt down the state Dem's when they left the state during state congressional sessions on redistricting. This is simple partisan payback. Earle is also in a hurry because Texas is about to take the so called "Public Intergity Unit" out of his hands and place it in the Texas Attorney Generals Office. The Ealre abuse is widely understood in Texas.

Can you explain to me how DeLay didn't break any laws? Can you do this without saying the word "Democrat" or "Republican"?

Nope because he's been illegally laundering money to finance his campaign.
