My hometown DA, Ronnie Earle, is quoted in this week’s Newsweek:
Earle, who was denounced by one House Republican last week as a “partisan crackpot district attorney,” declined to say whether he will ultimately indict DeLay or any more of his corporate donors. But he strongly hinted to NEWSWEEK there is more to come. “This investigation is a little like clowns coming out of a Volkswagen in the circus,” he said. “There’s always another clown coming out.”
Earle has his flaws and has made some horrible mistakes (the prosecution of 11 year-old Lacresha Murray for murder based solely on an illegally-obtained “confession” for example), but he’s served us well in regards to his supervison of the Public Integrity Unit here in Travis County. And he’s never met a politician that he feared. DeLay is in for a smack-down.
