T.A.B., Mussolini: Earle Can't Tell the Difference
"Finally, Earle recounted Mussolini's definition of fascism as the merger of state and corporate power, and suggested that T.A.B. would contribute to a similar merger in Texas unless stopped in its tracks." –The Austin Chronicle, April 11, 2003
You are probably guessing that in Ronnie Earle’s partisan fanatic mind Tom Delay and the Republicans would be the neo Mussolini and his Black Shirts. You are right. But, who is this evil T.A.B. (Texas Association of Business)?
The noble Ronnie Earle has prosecuted more demoracists than Republicans
Defenders of Earle like to point to the red herring that Earle has prosecuted Democrats, as well as Republicans, over the years. What they don't mention is that those Democrats were clearly guilty of serious violations (the cases were open and shut), and those prosecutions happened decades ago, when Texas was essentially a one-party state (controlled almost entirely by Democrats).
The real issue here is a failure on the part of Democrats to cope with the loss of political power they held in Texas (and elsewhere) for so many generations. Because Democrats have been so ineffective at the ballot box, and because DeLay is, in part, responsible for that failure, he must be destroyed.
As pseudo intellectual progressive liberal demoracists go Ronnie Earle is a real peach. Could this man be a ethical paragon?
"Dollars for Dismissals"
Byron York, NR White House Correspondent
The prosecutor in the DeLay case dropped charges in exchange for cash to pet cause.
Ronnie Earle, the Texas prosecutor who has indicted associates of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay in an ongoing campaign-finance investigation, dropped felony charges against several corporations indicted in the probe in return for the corporations' agreement to make five- and six-figure contributions to one of Earle's pet causes.
A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, last September indicted eight corporations in connection with the DeLay investigation. All were charged with making illegal contributions (Texas law forbids corporate giving to political campaigns). Since then, however, Earle has agreed to dismiss charges against four of the companies — retail giant Sears, the restaurant chain Cracker Barrel, the Internet company Questerra, and the collection company Diversified Collection Services — after the companies pledged to contribute to a program designed to publicize Earle's belief that corporate involvement in politics is harmful to American democracy. –The National Review Online, June 20, 2005
"This case is not just about Tom DeLay. If it isn't this Tom DeLay, it'll be another one, just like one bully replaces the one before." --Ronnie Earle
