So, is the perp walk a "Purely procedural event"?
Man, I hope so!
An arrest warrant was issued on Wednesday and bail set at $10,000 for former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay ahead of his first appearance in court on money laundering and conspiracy charges.
The issuance of the warrant, said Travis County Grand Jury Clerk Linda Estrada, was a "purely procedural event" but would require that DeLay surrender to authorities and be fingerprinted and photographed like anyone under felony indictment in Texas.
Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle, who has led the investigation into DeLay's campaign finance activities, said in a statement he had not requested the arrest warrant, but also had not objected to it.
"We believe that Congressman DeLay should be treated like everyone else," he said.
Busted for Money Laundering While Republican! Oh, the injustice! Oh, the humanity!
