Always though he was a douchey bastard, but glad to see Delay was acquitted...

Funny that the poster child for the GOP's so-called "culture of corruption" has been found not guilty.

The charges were political crap,

I think Decatur was the biggest proponent of that political trial and argued Delay would never be acquitted.

He is a strage bird but this situation was another case of prosecutorial misconduct, IMO.

We've seen a lot of that lately.

"Legally insufficient to sustain DeLay’s convictions" is not the same as Not Guilty.

A prosecutor that shopped about 6 different Grand Juries before he found one that would indict.

Just checked. Bush did commute the prison time, but not the fine, community service, etc.
