DeLay Puts Stake Securely Through Own Heart
Prosecutor Needs Merely to Cut Off Head, Stuff Mouth With Garlic
[via FireDogLake] We earlier reported that DeLay turned down a plea deal. This appears to have been his undoing. ReddHedd at FireDogLake gleefully points out that DeLay "opened his own big mouth and got himself indicted. Twice." The post links WaPo piece that discusses crucial admissions by DeLay regarding $190,000 of mostly corporate money he had funneled to and fro:
The last-minute negotiations between the lawyers and Texas prosecutor Ronnie Earle were arranged after DeLay made what Earle considered a seriously damaging admission about his fundraising activities during an Aug. 17 meeting with the prosecutor in Austin.
At that session, DeLay acknowledged that in 2002 he was informed about and expressed his support for transfers of $190,000 in mostly corporate funds from his Texas political action committee to an arm of the Republican National Committee in Washington and then back to Texas, according to the sources, who spoke on the condition that they not be named.
DeLay has done most of the work. This time, Ronnie Earle has to remember to cut off the head, stuff the mouth with garlic, and weld the lid of the coffin closed. Only then can we keep DeLay from again rising at night to feed on the blood of the living.
