From “Dancing With The Stars” with hopefully “Dancing With The Inmates”. Tom Delay represents one of the lowest forms of political deviancy that this country has seen. His corrupt process of influencing Texas redistricting as well as the fraudulent manner he raised money has been unparalleled until this year’s Karl Rove.
The very citizens that Tom Delay thought he owned have seen the light. Many Americans may not realize the magnitude of this conviction. For a Texas jury to convict Tom Delay, one of the most revered politicians in Texas and the country should put fear in Karl Rove and other political operatives that operate by bending election laws to distribute the windfall from the Oligarchs and Plutocrats that are the puppeteers of the Republican Party.
While the Oligarchs and Plutocrats were able to purchase a substantial portion of the Supreme Court, this particular conviction seem to be outside of the domain of the “Citizen’s United” decision that overturned McCain Feingold and many other laws that protected corporations from involving themselves directly into politics. Tom Delay is claiming that the current jury did not understand the case. He claims that their verdict is tantamount to the criminalization of politics.
The “criminalization of politics” was a phrase used often in the 2006 elections when a barrage of Republicans suffering ethics violations and criminal indictments needed a form of cover. This phrase is simply an attempt to make it appear that in politics what most Americans can smell as fraud is morphed into standard political operating procedures. Americans must not and will not allow this to occur.
Tom Delay’s conviction must only be the beginning. It is times to hunt all those that have compromised the body politic of America.
