Hastert a Heartbeat Away From Money-Laundering Scheme

Well, this was refreshing to see in the press today:
    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A Texas grand jury on Monday re-indicted
    Rep. Tom DeLay on charges of conspiring to launder money and money
    laundering after the former majority leader attacked last week's
    indictment on technical grounds.
I was wondering when we were going to use the proper language and call the whole thing what it really is.

Honestly, now, if $190,000 is collected -- illegally or not -- and then filtered through another organization in the same amount in an effort to legitimize it, that's money-laundering.

If it happens to be part of the "election reform" these bastards ushered in in the past 11 years, then it's called institutional money-laundering.

Hastert has voted with DeLay 100% of the time for a reason. He's bought & paid for just like the rest of the IL GOP Congressional Delegation. The one word that is synonymous with everyone (especially in IL) in DeLay's pocket is ===>>
