A prosecutor normally does not press charges if they think a conviction is unlikely. Ronnie Earle knows that he will not be able to put Tom Delay in jail. His actions are purely motivated by politics. The liberal establishment only cares about damaging DeLay’s effectiveness. We are going to see more of this in the future. The Democrats cannot win at the ballot box. They will instead opt to cripple Republicans in the court room. The GOP leadership naively passed a rule which compels them to remove their congressional leader if this individual is criminally indicted. It sounded good at the time. However, we are living in an entirely different era. The Democrats are desperate and have no hesitation to corrupt our criminal justice system in the pursuit of their goals.
