The Hammer...

gets nailed!

Tom Delay was indicted in Texas today on conspiracy counts.

There is a spin alert:
Expect the Republican spin machine to come out in full force exclaiming that Ronnie Earle is a partisan Democrat and has indicted Tom Delay as part of a "partisan witch hunt."

It's not true. The numbers don't lie. In his career, Ronnie Earle has prosecuted more Democratic officeholders than he has Republican ones.

The pontificator from DailyKos cites:

Houston Chronicle (March 17, 2003):

During his long tenure, Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle has prosecuted many more Democratic officials than Republicans. The record does not support allegations that Earle is prone to partisan witch hunts.

El Paso Times (March 6, 2004):

Earle says local prosecution is fundamental and points out that 11 of the 15 politicians he has prosecuted over the years were Democrats. His prosecutions include former Democratic Attorney General Jim Mattox.
