Blast from the past time: Tom Delay's trial finally starting

Tom Delay, the scandal-plagued former Congressman from Texas who ran amok in Washington and across the country (and the world) with Jack Abramoff the last time the Rs controlled the House is finally going on trial.  He faces money laundering charges in Texas stemming from campaign finance violations.

From CNN -
Jury selection is scheduled to begin Tuesday in the trial of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who is charged with illegally funneling corporate money to help elect GOP candidates to the Texas legislature.

The Republican was indicted in 2005 on charges he illegally sent $190,000 in corporate money through the Republican National Committee to help elect GOP Texas legislative candidates in 2002.
Corporate moneyLegislative elections?  Delay was a man ahead of his time.  Too bad for him that he was a criminal in his time.

Thanks for the heads-up on this go to Jobsanger in Texas...
