The Anvil vs. The Hammer
Nostradamnthem is thinking this - that in order for DeLay to want to be re-instated as HML badly enough to want to risk and immediate trial and the possibility of being convicted, there must be either a lot of crooked people he thought he could squeeze for an acquittal, or a lot of money involved in holding that position, or both. Certainly in an environment as corrupt with bribery and pay for access as GOP K Street Washington, the HML who conceived the K Street Project may be getting a slice of every transaction. At least, that is the way organized crime would be doing it, and this is definitely organized crime - bribery, money laundering, influence peddling, voter registration violations, vote fraud, lying to Congress, treason, and God only knows what else is going on.
Remember the map of the alleged Clinton money laundering thing? The one that involved Bill authorizing Arkansas Redelevopment Loans for people, thru Hillary's Rose Law Firm? Whitewater, wasn't it called? Anyway the map looked like a spiderweb of Arkansas names. Well, just wait until you see the map of the Abramoff / DeLay Access-gate scandal. It's going to make Whitewater look like a street map of Podunk compared to a map of D.C.
