Disgraced 'Amway' stooge takes large stride towards jail
Your free-thinking readers will be very pleased to learn that, two days ago (five years after he was indicted), one of the'Amway' mob's most-sanctimonious and sleazy US political stooges, former- Republican Congressman for a Texas constituency, Tom DeLay (b. 1948), was found guilty of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering, by a Texas State jury. The evidence against him was overwhelming and he risks spending the rest of his life in jail, but he left the courtroom still grinning from ear to ear, steadfastly pretending to be the innocent little victim of an abuse of power.
As has become the fashion in the American kleptocracy, the appropriately named Mr. DeLay, will have simply instructed his attorneys to lodge an appeal against his criminal conviction.
In 2006, two of Mr. DeLay's aides conveniently pleaded guilty to corruption charges resulting from their association with Republican 'lobbyist,' Jack Abramoff. At that time, Mr. DeLay, who was rapidly becoming a major embarrassment to the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob, decided to get out of politics. Theupstanding ChristianCongressman, and former 'Amway Business Owner,' himself narrowly escaped criminal charges after a six-year federal corruption investigation into Mr. Abramoff. This resulted in the 'lobbyist' being indicted, convicted and sentenced to 4 years in a federal prison for commiting fraud against native American Indian tribes and for bribing Republican politicians and their aides.
