DeLay's original indictment thrown out

The judge overseeing the case against Representative Tom DeLay today threw out the original indictment in the case. This is the one that alleged a crime that wasn't even a crime when it was supposedly committed. The judge rightly threw the charge out of court.

DeLay's not completely in the clear yet, though. There are still some charges remaining. I doubt those will stand up very long at trial, however; it took the DA three grand juries to obtain those indictments in the first place, and since a competent DA can get a chicken sandwich indicted, that just hows how weak the case really is.

I don't expect those who were crowing over the now-rejected indictment to admit that it just might have been a political trick designed to get DeLay out of the leadership position he held, though...
