Tom DeLay calls Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s indictment a ‘conspiracy’

by Joseph Weber,
August 19, 2014

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay on Monday sharply criticized the Texas county prosecutor’s office that indicted him and more recently fellow Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry, calling the case against the governor a “vendetta” and another example of the “criminalization of politics.”

In an interview with, DeLay attacked nearly every aspect of the prosecution’s case against Perry — suggesting it was political retribution for the governor’s attempt to remove a county district attorney with a criminal record and a “conspiracy” likely traceable to Washington Democrats.

“There is no doubt [the case] is politically motivated,” he said. “Once again, the district attorney of Travis County presented a case, not unlike mine, that was very weak, if it was a case at all. … It’s a conspiracy to use the legal system to politicize politics.”

    The calibre of thoughts expressed hereafter are all pitted against each other over Obama and all negative quotes from the news media concerning Governor Perry who was just “indicted” by a grand jury on 2 counts of abuse of power & coercion over a funding VETO he made. Last year Gov. Perry vetoed $7.5 million in FUNDING FOR AN integrity unit (part of the D.A.’s office). The move was seen as hard ball politics to force out Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lahmberg after she plead guilty to drunken driving, which has been recorded via video showing how completely abusive and out of control she was because they had to put a mask over her face as she was spitting at the officers. The Public Integrity Unit, she oversaw, disperses funding for assuring public offices for the whole state of Texas are run according to their laws and integrity. This suit, broadcast as a crime committed by the governor and brought about by a radical political group is insane and the citizens of Texas had better support their Governor who acted as he has sworn to do in upholding the ” integrity ” of Texas laws. ( as quoted in part from WND 08/15 )

    being indicted for doing his job–nothing but a vendetta!

  • Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

    I am compelled to tell you haters that there is no Federal involvement in this case against Governor Perry and that you trying to somehow spin as if it is is sheer ignorance. Argue the point on it’s merits. Governor Perry has admitted what he said and did and claims he has a Constitutional right under the Texas Constitution to do so and the Special Prosecutor, a former Bush employees says there is a law written to prevent exactly what Governor Perry did.

      Dude you’re so full of SH!T the skin is falling off of your face and your eye balls are coming out of your head.

    2. I Seigel says:

      Raymond, have you noticed that ALL of boone1’s comments are TOTALLY empty of any meaningful response? Just a bunch of denials, name-calling, and accusations. Not one sentence with a logical argument, a rebuttal containing a single fact, or a fresh idea. He’s just a mindless prole channeling Sean and Laura and Glenn. Don’t waste another minute trying to talk to him.

      In fact, I think boone1 and numorning2 might be the same person. loon1 and numoron2, I mean.

      1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

        Have you noticed that although the name changes many of these posters on here remain exactly the same? They make the same spelling and grammatical errors. Their syntax stays atrocious. Their methodology is pathetic and they are simply ignorant of facts?

  • Betty Hanner says:

    i dont understand how they can try rick and not try obama he has done more then rick he abuse his power time and time again

    1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

      Again simply put there is evidence against Governor Perry and he admits he actually did what he is accused of claiming he had a right to. I can not tell you anything about President Obama as your accusations are too vague and sound like dreams or something

      1. Betty Hanner says:

        i will tell you what i am talking obamahas over stept his power so many and now he wont to give all them mexican annesty so what are we suppose to do with them we are haven ahard enought time trying to make a liveing for our own familey but he is going to over stept his powes again so what do you say about that???

        1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

          Had a bit of a time reading your post but I think I finally understood it. It is my fault you see I should have said give us something real not just in the imagination of Bill O’Reilly or Laura Ingraham. While he has the power to make some changes as President that is up to him and if he does you can bet it will be legal. Your not liking it does not make it illegal.

          1. Betty Hanner says:

            i know it take some time for some people to understand thing but are you so stupied that you can not see what obama is doing to the united state he is trying to destrody us i don under stand people like you

          2. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            Perhaps if you tried English we would both do better in comprehending?

          3. Betty Hanner says:

            you sound just like some onewho came from anothercountry may be that why you cant under stand what i am saying or you are just plane stupied or maybe you are a muslin if so come around me and i will blow your head off

          8. numorning2 says:

            how many years did you attend post HS on the taxpayers back? while you and your type think so highly of themselves spending as much time in academia as possible the rest of the pop. the so-called ‘ignorant’ are out producing keeping the wheels turning so you can enjoy living off the system at every possible chance you can. Then u come here and think anyone has any respect for anything you have to say? come on – don’t u people ever work while taking up the space where you’re suppose to be employed?

          9. I Seigel says:

            You seem to be saying the same thing over and over again to anyone who disagrees with you. Do you think anyone that went to college is “living off the system” and living off the taxpayers? That just shows what an ignoramus you are.

          10. numorning2 says:

            really? first of all Seigel about one third of the people I know working for the state, federal or local governments are college grads. Please tell us what you do to contribute to society, you do recognize this as a rhetorical question. don’t bother answering mr. intellectual…lol btw I suppose I should be flattered that u would bother to read anything I post over and over again! But, I’m not.

          11. I Seigel says:

            Can you PLEASE try to make some sense? NOTHING here makes any sense. You seem to be contradicting yourself from one comment to the next.

            Again: please explain what going to college and “living off the backs of the taxpayers” has anything to do with each other. In one comment, you say criticize people who “attend post-HS on the taxpayers back”, and then in another comment you seem to be defending the “one third of the people I know working for the state, federal or local governments are college grads”. So what are you REALLY whining about?!?!

          12. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            Actually no you ignorant dumb fuck I do not work I am retired. That’s right I am an angry old white guy who thinks you were nothing more than gas that your mother passed

          14. boone1 says:

            Sure it will but it won’t be legal you can bet on that and that’s why he needs to be impeach.

          15. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            Yall got nuttin but warm not even hot air!

        2. I Seigel says:

          Betty, I’m interested to know how YOU and your own family are having a hard time making a living and why the “Mexican amnesty” would hurt your family. Could you please give some details?

          1. numorning2 says:

            how about the entitlements they’ll recieve courtesy of the taxpaper, now don’t give me the BS they’re not going to get any. How else do these dem keep their voter base? the jobs they’ll do cheaply (making rep. and dem. happy) could be forced upon the folks sitting on their butts collecting welfare that are able to work. Next the overcrowding of schools – these folks come into America live in a community where the average American has 2 or 3 children in a household and place 4-8 kids in there. tired of telling u what u should know.

          2. I Seigel says:

            Yeah, yeah, blah blah blah. Try reading my question and answering it. You’re just regurgitating the trite and tired crap from Fox.

          3. numorning2 says:

            hey there you sick puppy, I should be so fortunate as to be such as yourself – able to spend my time watching Fox….what u need is a job, a real job out in the real world where u have to produce. Not taking up space and collecting off the backs of the taxpayer! Grow Up and when you’re ready to leave the back porch come on back and run with the big dogs!

          4. I Seigel says:

            Oh, so you know all about me huh? You must be a private detective. Also known as a private dick.

            So you’re implying that people who watch Fox News are unemployed leeches? Oh, that’s nice!! The folks around here will love you for that. Keep talking, genius. I can’t wait to hear more of your deep and meaningful insights.

          5. numorning2 says:

            name calling how original! never said everyone who watches Fox is anything particular. I said, or rather inplied that liberal trolls like yourself are watching to try and develop an argument with anyone who has an opposing opinion. get it or do u want a picture drawn?

          6. I Seigel says:

            Wait, wait!! You call me a “sick puppy”, tell me I need a “real job”, that I shouldn’t “take up space and collect(ing) off the backs of the taxpayer”, (of course while knowing nothing at all about me) and YOU accuse ME of name calling?!?!? Wow! Nice argument. Thanks for playing. Now go home and sit on YOUR porch, and don’t bother trying to “run with the big dogs”, ’cause it’s obvious you have nothing to contribute.

      2. boone1 says:

        LIBERALS will not admit to anything and that is you liberal you will never admit to anything because it’s in your blood to lie.

        1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

          And other than stupidly saying no hard proof exists even when the Governor admitted openly and frely that he did what have you admitted to? Being a moron? Why thank you but that is no secret.

  • budgienation says:

    Tom Delay is a contemptible little shit. He can call it a ‘conspiracy’, hell he can call it a corned beef on rye with mustard if he wants. It’s simply the gears of justice grinding, only this time its Perry caught in the gears. If it has merit, it will proceed, if not, it will fail. Just let it drag on and see what happens. Why so worried? You do think he’s innocent, don’t you? Or, gee, maybe, in the pit of your political gut, you know Perry is a loud mouthed, know nothing, contemptible shit, too? How’s that fit? Walk around in it and get used to it. See you at the polls in November, and, I hope you like the smell of sawdust, because you’re going to ‘the woodshed’. Have a nice time on the ‘rubbish pile of history’.

    Tom was exonerated of his purported crimes BUT THE DAMAGE WAS DONE.

    1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

      I agree there was an appeals court decision exonerating Mr Delay of charges that brought about his downfall. I will also admit that two separate and distinct committees have stated unequivocally that there simply is nothing to all the whining done on Benghazi. Why is it Delay is now an acceptable outcome but Benghazi is not?

      1. regulus30 says:

        how many Americans were left to die needlessly by TOM DELAY???????

        1. I Seigel says:

          Not nearly as many as were sent to die in Afghanistan and Iraq by Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld without proper body armor and armored vehicles. What is the point you’re trying – and failed – to make?

      2. Gnowark says:

        Perhaps because DeLay’s evidence was available, but Hillary/Obama/State Dept is STILL trickling out non-information in response to Investigation requests. I see you haven’t read the Benghazi report which did NOT state what you claim.
        The asked but unanswered questions (and I am sure you don’t have the answers, but no longer want to ask any questions) remain (conveniently) in limbo..

        1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

          That is not unlike a child dropping to the floor and pounding their feet while screaming “I want it, I want it I want it”. Time for you to get out of your denial these were Teapublicans not Democrats saying there is no there there. For once grow up ! Seriously the right has wasted enough money on stupidity. Get your nose out of Murdoch’s backside and try to focus on reality

  • Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

    Yes by all means an absolute moron such as Rick Perry is worth the time it takes to come up with a conspiracy. Asshats!!!!

    1. numorning2 says:

      you should be so lucky as to be such a moron! so who puts the bread & butter on your table?

      1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

        Suffice it to say unlike Perry I earned what I have legally. Oh and if you see Rick tell him I talked with Bubba and they are getting married! Well at least there will be a Honeymoon.

        1. numorning2 says:

          legally?? are you a social worker for the state? hey, if you think Perry is bad – you need to take a close look at the dude taking up space in the oval office and his gang of merrymen!

          1. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            Let me try to make this so simple there can be little confusion., This is not about the President of the Untied States, it is about the Governor of t is much more comfortable for yall to spin this somehow to the President however I am not easily spun to a different topic. Next yall will begin calling me names rather than stay on topic and that is ok as well because your opinions of me are totally insignificant especially if you simply can not stay on topic. I will add that while there is hard evidence against the Governor you have only dreams and wishes against the President. Yall make huge claims such as Trey ” I have a bombshell on Benghazi” Gowdy did until a Republican committee said there is simply no proof, none and in this country despite idiots like Perry there is still a rule of law

          2. numorning2 says:

            try to keep it and get off pmsnbc….if u think for one second that perry is any worse than BO you’re just one of the mindless followers of the propaganda machine that leads the voters in this country into one of two paths- both ending in the same place. so here we are in that place all together and each of us can point fingers and push the blame anywhere it falls and sticks, but, the truth of the matter is if you were really thinking and not interested in socialism, you’d not be a member of either of the establishment political parties in the USA.

          3. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            Still not simple enough apparently? I saw photographs of Governor Perry as a defendant in a Court Room. Despite all the claims I have not seen President Obama in such a position. While Teapublicans, including you, regardless of denial, are all against President Obama constantly, the number of Democrats involved in this against the Governor is minimal. The Governor is simply not a national figure never was a national figure and now will undoubtedly ever be a national figure.
            Now as to the veiled attempt at putting me in a niche so you can better satisfy your need for me to be what I am not. I never once praised nor condemned either man. Your childlike suggestion of my mindlessness is worth exactly what I just called it a childish gesture, nothing more. And strictly for your edification, here in Florida we can and I have registered as no party affiliation. I am the one you do not wish to insult because some will vote Dem no matter. some will vote Rep, no matter. I will vote for the better man every time and that is why you ned to call me what you do. Have a great day!

          4. numorning2 says:

            I don’t think I ever said I was a big fan of Perry. and regardless of what party you’ve claimed to be registered with, I can spot a far left progressive with my eyes shut. oh BTW most of my days are good – thank you. as far as BO goes, ones has to ask themselves WHY is he a national figure? If u convince yourself it’s bkz he’s deserving, well then I’ll have to place u in the category with most of the others who think him to be something he’s not, delusional and/or just a party line fella. What I want to know is as bad as Bush was, how come after or near 6 yr later this current leader (use that term loosely) still has to blame everything (such as you do) on past administrations. Bush walzed into a hot bed bkz clinton didn’t take the threat over in the mid east with the terrorist seriously, and we go 911. Now this dude goes on 4ever about EVERYTHING being someone elses fault. I see how his foreign policies are working. WOW just freaken great! I bet those folks being beheaded etc…over in Iraq are sure glad BO pulled all the troops out. but, oh my, that’s right our prez said that was Bush’s fault too….he has no time but, to do 300 rounds of golf in 6 yr and still bush was the only one to blame for our woes of today. give me a break. Perry may be another bozo on the bus, but, currently the leader of the clowns is BHO

          5. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            You do not think you are a big fan of Governor Perry? You defend his indicted ass as if you are using it in ways it was never intended to be used. Other than that no you are not particularly fond of him.
            As for your entire ridiculous diatribe about President Obama well he is President because a majority of Americans elected him not once but twice.SO despite what you say you are in the minority
            How is it that you suggest that time corrects the mistakes a person makes? I have a piece of news for you it does not. It may dull some of the pain and it sometimes also dulls some memories but an idiot will remain an idiot forever. Is our children learning?
            Then you stupidly quote numbers without foundation. If you like let’s compare rounds of golf played by previous Presidents. If for now other reason other than to validate the significance of your claim. OK? I have the numbers right here. Would you care to look even more ridiculous than you already do outside the confines of a Teapublican site? Once every so often I run across someone who forces me to think “do they really believe themselves? do they read what they post?” and you are certainly one of those. Oh also if you wish we can talk about the blunders of George W. I am open to that. You say do not blame Bush because time has taken care of his mistakes and then you go back beyond him to President Clinton? Really? Do you think that is going to fly?

          6. numorning2 says:

            maybe u need to re-read without attitude inserted my comment. secondly, I haven’t voted for an pres. twice since Reagan. Duh more than I can say for you. Now the Perry politics I am not really following. I know TX not only survived the recession, but, thrived and Perry has been – lets say re-elected 3 times. gee he must be doing an awful job. BO getting re-elected means nothing, bkz the mindless followers who have their hand out and await the govt to do everything for them (maybe we could exclude wipe their asses) couldn’t produce or keep a horse running around a track. What I’ve seen on the perry thing, is Dems coming out saying it’s ridiculous – NYTimes Mark halperin you must know him how about Axelrod ‘pretty sketchy’ I believe I’ve quoted him correctly. You far left progressives all think alike and that’s why America is where it is today. Don’t tell me about Bush, I voted for him once and was done. Unlike you folks who think no one but a liberal is ever right. Children learning well since the Fed. Gvt. under the Dem took over the Dept of Edu. our students have continuously been dumbed down and can’t compete. Oh no, that’s a bad thing. Can’t have winners and loosers – got to even out the playing field so no ones feelings are hurt….why do u ever come off of a progressive leftie site? Yep must have hit a nerve you supposedly independant

          7. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            LMAO just because you are paranoid doesn’t mean they are not trying to kill you huh?
            Here is a quote for you from a Missouri former Party Leader which translated seems to mean if I am a Republican I can be a bigot.
            Again you rather dumbly suggest what my votes have been in the past. I have no problem saying I voted for Bush once and was wrong as hell. was an inept stupid ass fool married to a murderess and lead by an arrogant pompous lying bastard named Cheney. I do though love how you suggest that the majority is wrong and you are right. Mostly because by virtue of that very fact you have paranoid tendencies and are wrong as well. Majority Rules in the US

          8. numorning2 says:

            the Libetarian Party describes ‘democracy’ as 3 wolves and a lamb having a meeting to discuss whats for lunch. Paranoid gee I’m glad I have enough wits about me to still now when I should be. Bush was a one timer for me as well and the unfortuante thing about politics in America today is picking the lesser of two evils. Well lots of folks I know couldn’t do John Boy in 08, but, lots of my friends, family co-workers and neighbors who voted for BO in 08 couldn’t do it again in 2012. I wonder how often that was repeated throughout the country. And majority Rules thinking that’s a good thing hey? That’s why they (the left) need those give-a-way programs and bring on amnesty (not that the creepy republicans don’t want it to for their buds) to keep a good solid base. Yep, it’s pretty strange how you could see Bush for what he was, but, not BO. tells all!

          9. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            Again you do well to spin an article about one thing into an article or a bitch session about something else. There is the problem with the right. Simply can not stick to a point. Compelled to bounce to half truths dreams and innuendo. You fail to say what President Obama has done wrong you merely insinuate it. Is that because your paranoia tells you get specific and get defeated in a debate? I can name Bush’s mistakes beginning with the worst of all. Lying to put us into a war where we lost so much and see I simply state it. I do not insinuate Bush did wrong and you do not see it because I know you do. You may not like seeing it but see it you do. You bring President Obama into it and darkly say he is bad but grossly fail to enumerate his faults. Shows me your bias and bigotry outweigh all else. Now you wish to lean Libertarian? A utopic world with no rules no laws no anything? Good Luck that is not the US so when are you moving? You suggest majority rule may be wrong because it can be swayed and I believe Majority rule is best because it can be. This great Nation was founded on that idea and it has somehow been successful of overcoming many adversities in it’s history. If something works I feel no need to fix it. I will not fall on my knees to someone who wants me to worship a water Goddess. who says that minorities have less rights and public businesses can be both public and private at the same time. By the wit was not just war monger McCain it was a rich conniving asshat that was my Governor and I saw first hand his ineptitude at governing. He was good at screwing people but that is not governing. I hope they have the internet in your new country so that you can stay in touch as I would truly like to hear how it is working for you.

          12. I Seigel says:

            Without letting emotion or opinion get in the way, let’s look at 2 simple facts:

            1. Perry has been indicted by a grand jury (not by a DA or any Democrats), and has now been officially booked.

            2. Obama, as of this date, has not.

            3. Both men claim to be operating within their constitutionally-mandated rights and powers as the chief executives of their respective organizations.

            So, please tell me why, in the absence of any contrary FACTS, you see the actions of Perry as perfectly legal, but you feel Obama is breaking every law under the sun?

          13. numorning2 says:

            first look at how it came about, and where the grand jury was convened from. then look at what other prominent democrats are saying about this including axelrod…ny times and mark halperin… everyone is afraid of being labeled a racist, BO has his bases covered and those who put this anti american in the oval office knew how far they could go with this black prez in there. an agenda is being fullfilled and we’re the suckers who’ll pay. hope your consciencous is clear for the next 20 years.

          14. boone1 says:

            Hey asswipe there is NO hard evidence against the Governor of Texas and you are a fool to say that and as you’re president obama goes there is so much hard evidence to put him in jail for life now how do you like that liberal asshole.

          15. Raymond J Ambrozaitis says:

            You absolutely dumb fuck Governor Perry has admitted openly that he did what he is accused of. He does however claim he was right in doing so. THe dispute is not in what he did it is was it legal for him to do it in the manner he did it. No better third evidence than the man saying Yes I did you poor excuse for an asshat

Gee why do you think that was? Could there have been a political motive behind those? LMAO one of them was even a second offense and Governor Perry did not feel that was serious?

    I do not know the merits of this case regarding abuse of power. BUT I do
    know that our president is a prime example of such. Let’s indict him!

      Hey, “Guest”! Except for the inclusion of “for Mr. Perry”, you posted the exact same comment as “Ted” who posted the same thing at the same time “18 hours ago” from the time stamp on the posting. Wassamatter, “Ted”? Did you feed your little quote to a whole roomful of trolls, who will all post your stuff, with maybe a little addition or subtraction to make it look ‘original’? We are everywhere and we are watching “Ted”. Or, is it ‘guest’. It’s hard to tell as ‘all you trolls look and write alike’. It’s hard thinking for yourself without checking for the approval of “Flush Limpballs” or “Bill O’Really”, isn’t it?

      Ted and “Guest”: yes, it’s obvious that you don’t know the merits of the case. Please try to educate yourselves (or is it just one of you?) just a little bit before posting, or you simply show the rest of us that you have nothing to contribute here.
