But DeLay paid a huge personal price. With his Texas criminal case dragging on, he renounced his leadership post early this year. Then, with his legal jeopardy rising in the unrelated Jack Abramoff corruption probe, he resigned from the House, which he had dominated for more than a decade.
Still, he said he was heartened by yesterday's Supreme Court ruling.
"It's always worth it to stand up for the Constitution," DeLay said.
I think if the Framers had wanted bribing politicians to be legal, they would have put that in the Constitution. I'm not entirely sure how DeLay thinks he was standing up for the Constitution, if in fact he's not just lying out of habit. And if I recall correctly they didn't write in the idea of drawing districts to help political parties out either.
DeLay, you are a big bag of un-American, un-patriotic, lying, filthy, immoral crap.
