Justice Delayed

In a story that will get little national coverage, the Associated Press reports that a charge that the Texas Association of Business used funds illegally to support political campaigns in 2002 legislative races has been tossed out of court. Related charges, still pending, filed against Tom Delay led to his resignation from Congress.

Goodness knows that Mr. Delay's repudiation of what once were considered to be Republican principles (such as fiscal restraint and limited government), as evidenced by his pursuit of the "K-Street Project," makes him no friend of fiscal conservatives. It is somewhat unfortunate that this overzealous prosecution based on trumped up charges by a political opponent ultimately led to his downfall.
