Delay Resigns

Tom Delay has been indicted, and has stepped aside from his leadership post. Delay, of course, proclaims his innocence, declaring the charges to be political persecution.

As expected, people on the Left and the Right have lined up, declaring him guilty or innocent. So did he so anything wrong? I have no idea. Obviously, Democrats have been after him for a long while, and I’m sure politics do play a major role in this whole episode. But that doesn’t make him innocent. Ultimately, I suspect Delay will beat these charges, but my stance on the matter is simple: If Delay is innocent, I hope he is acquitted. If he is guilty, I hope he is convicted.
