Justice DeLayed

Justice DeLayed is Justice Denied.

Mr Delay was finally convicted of money laundering (DeLay Convicted in Donation Case by a Texas Jury, New York Times, November 25, 2010 A1

However there is no restitution for the voters of Texas. Indirectly, the money provided by Delay was used to support Republican candidates in the state office elections. They won control of the legislature and then, in an unprecidented between census redistricting, redrew federal House district boundaries to benefit their fellow Republicans.

In the subsequent election, the Texas delegation which had a small Democratic majority (17-15) swung decisively to the Republicans (21-11).

Are the Texas House victories won by Republicans to be declared invalid because of the tainted funding? Are the House district boundaries to be redrawn?

How can Texas be made whole again?
