Or as South Texas Chisme says, Even the Republicans want Tom DeLay in jail. From the AAS.

An attorney who represents the state in cases before Texas’ highest criminal appeals court has joined Travis County prosecutors in asking the court to reverse itself and reinstate an indictment against former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

State Prosecuting Attorney Jeffrey Van Horn filed a friend of the court brief saying the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals erred in not upholding a conspiracy indictment against DeLay, a Sugar Land Republican who stepped down from Congress last year.

Van Horn said in Thursday’s editions of the Houston Chronicle that he filed a brief in support of Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle’s request for a rehearing because the court’s recent ruling in DeLay’s case would affect many areas of criminal law.

He said under the court’s ruling, the conspiracy statute will apply only to crimes that have been specifically designated by the Legislature as having a conspiracy element.

I knew there had to be at least one Republican that still believed in the rule of law.
