    Texas Court Issues Warrant for DeLay

    (10-19) 12:14 PDT Austin, Texas (AP) --

    A Texas court issued a warrant Wednesday for former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to appear for booking, where he is likely to face the fingerprinting and photo mug shot he had hoped to avoid.

    Bail was initially set at $10,000 as a routine step before his first court appearance on conspiracy and money laundering charges. Travis County court officials said DeLay was ordered to appear at the Fort Bend County jail for booking.

    The warrant was "a matter of routine and bond will be posted," DeLay attorney Dick DeGuerin said.

    The lawyer declined to say when DeLay would surrender to authorities but said the lawmaker would make his first court appearance Friday morning.

    The charges against the Texas Republican stem from allegations that a DeLay-founded Texas political committee funneled corporate money into state GOP legislative races through the National Republican Party. Texas law prohibits use of corporate money to elect state candidates.

    DeLay is charged with conspiracy to violate state election laws and money laundering, felony counts that triggered House Republican rules that forced him to step aside as majority leader.

    Two separate indictments charge that DeLay and two political associates had the money distributed to state legislative candidates in a roundabout way — sending it from the political action committee in Texas to the Republican National Committee in Washington and finally back to candidates' campaigns.

    DeLay has denied wrongdoing.

    The effort had major political consequences, first by helping Republicans take control of the Texas Legislature in the 2002 elections. The Legislature then redrew congressional boundaries according to a DeLay-inspired plan, took command of the state's U.S. House delegation and helped the GOP retain its U.S. House majority.
    The shit has hit the fan.

    He's turning himself in, apparently. I have to see this live. Maybe this will wipe that smug, self-satisfied look off his face. YYYYEEEEEHHHHHAAAAAA!!!!

    DeLay turns himself in
    01:07 PM CDT on Thursday, October 20, 2005

    Associated Press

    HOUSTON - U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay on Thursday turned himself in at the Harris County sheriff's bonding office, where he was photographed, fingerprinted and released on bond on state conspiracy and money laundering charges.

    “He posted $10,000 bond and they have left the bonding office,” Lt. John Martin with the sheriff's department said.

    DeLay, accompanied by his attorney, Dick DeGuerin, showed up about 12:15 p.m., appeared before a judge and was gone in less than 30 minutes, Martin said.
