DeLay v. Texas Prosecutorial Overreach? - MP3
Running Time: 0:48:23
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has been involved in a lengthy legal battle over campaign finance activities in the 2002 election cycle. On September 19, 2013, a Texas court overturned Delay's previous conviction for money laundering, citing the evidence as legally insufficient to sustain his convictions. Our experts provided some summary of previous developments and technical background on the campaign finance aspects of the case, and offered a balanced discussion of the First Amendment issues at play.
