BREAKING: Tom DeLay Guilty of Money Laundering

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

The Hammer won’t be reprising his role on Dancing with the Stars anytime soon.

After deliberating for 19 hours, a jury today returned guilty verdicts against former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay — once one of the most powerful and feared Republican in the U.S. Congress, of illegally funneled corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.

He faces up to life in prison on the money laundering charge.

Prosecutors said DeLay, who once held the No. 2 job in the House of Representatives and whose heavy-handed style earned him the moniker “the Hammer,” was convicted of using his PAC to illegally channel $190,000 in corporate donations into 2002 Texas legislative races through a money swap.

    The Hammer won’t wield any power in prison. In fact, he may have to use his gash to pleasure Bubba and not talk smack about Democrats. DeLay is one of the most disgusting pieces of human feces to crawl on all fours out of the Lone Star State. Enjoy your bright orange jumpsuit, asshole, oh and Happy Thanksgiving!

    There’s much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving! 🙂

    I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’ll be back commenting Friday. Stay safe and avoid the drunk drivers.

    This made my day!

    Tom DeLay: the Pride of Tejas! ROFLMAO!

    Life is good.

    I hope Tom wears his tacky red, white & blue outfit he wore on Dancing with the Stars, & dances into prison. Glad they nailed him.
    Now they need to give Rangel something more than a censure hand slap for bilking the US for 17 years of tax evasion on his Dominican Republic villa.
    Come on! What would the average citizen get for 17 years of tax evasion?
    I’m thinking jail time.

    Good. This trial has dragged on seemingly forever. Now, let’s just hope President Obama doesn’t decide to pardon him to curry favor with his “friends across the aisle.” There’s got to be a miserable prison in West Texas where the temperatures are 120′ nine months out of the year to send Delay.

    Somewhere in Sugar Land, a Republican woman weeps.

  8. Thai Noodles says:

    Well, according to the legal experts on FIXED News, Delay has nothing to worry about because he was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars.

    In the warped world of Murdock and Ailes, this makes DeLay a fine, upstanding citizen.

    I guess the conviction on money laundering is no more serious than an unpaid parking meter ticket.

    Remember Tom DeLay’s smiling mug shot? Today Tom has received a massive attitude adjustment. Tom isn’t smiling anymore.

  10. Joe in Colorado says:

    Thai Noodles,

    Are you serious? DWTS, according to FOX News, made DeLay a fine, upstanding American citizen? You really have to wonder what they’re smoking over on Avenues of the Americas? Talk about creative logic.
