BREAKING: DeLay Reveals Plan To Have Texas Legislature Oust Ronnie Earle

Transcript:

SNOW: Okay, so at this point, you know — are you willing to let bygones be bygones?

DELAY: Absolutely not. Texas should not allow a district attorney from Travis County have this kind of power. And they can take his power away from him because there was the Texas legislature that gave him this power. And I think that will happen in the next session of the Texas legislature.

SNOW: Oh, really?

DELAY: Yes.

DeLay sounds like someone who is really confident of his ability to win on the merits in a court of law.
