Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Money-laundering charge stands
WASHINGTON — A Texas judge threw out a conspiracy charge Monday against former House Republican Leader Tom DeLay but refused to dismiss a money-laundering charge, moving him closer to a criminal trial.

Senior District Judge Pat Priest's decision came as a new USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll indicated DeLay may be in political trouble at home. (Related item: Poll results)

DeLay spokesman Kevin Madden called the ruling a victory and said DeLay "looks forward to his eventual and absolute exoneration."

A Thursday-Sunday poll of registered voters in DeLay's suburban Houston district found that if an election for his seat was held today he would lose to an unnamed Democrat 49%-36%. DeLay was returned to Congress last year by a 55%-41% margin.

The poll showed he now has a favorable rating of 37% among registered voters in his district. More than half — 52% — have an unfavorable opinion of him. And 55% said the charges against him are definitely or probably true. Only 8% said they were definitely not true.
