Looks like Tommy boy will say anything, and I mean anything, even if he contradicts himself. All along, DeLay has been claiming that Earle indicted DeLay for the sole purpose of making DeLay step down as the Republican leader in the house.
Turns out DeLay's charges, are again, baseless.
Earle offered DeLay a plea bargain before the indictment was handed down. Earle offered to let DeLay plead guilty to a misdemeanor so DeLay would not have to step down as the GOP leader. But, DeLay refused, therefore Earle had to go forward with the felony indictments that forced DeLay from his seat.
So much for the contention that Earle only brought the indictment to force him to step down. Is it just me, or do politicians talk to much for heir own good sometimes?
Plea deals are a very common occurrence in criminal prosecutions. It is actually rare that cases go to trial. The scary thing about DeLay is, even if he is guilty as hell, he probably honestly believes he has done nothing wrong. That is just the type of guy he is.
DeLay Offered Deal Before Indictment
