The worse part of it all is that even after Delay lost his appeal to the Supreme Court - when Justice Scalia of all people turned them down - Bopp still looked for a way around the law:
The lawyer who argued the Republicans' case, James Bopp Jr., said Tuesday that there might still be ways to keep Mr. DeLay off the ballot. For instance, Mr. Bopp said in a telephone interview, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, a Republican, could appoint or nominate Mr. DeLay to another office, making him ineligible to serve in Congress.
So look on the bright side Matt. Even though you seem to have violated campaign finance law and hired the lawyer of the most corrupt politician of the last two decades - at least he may still find a technicality that will keep you out of trouble.
The bad news? It didn't work for Delay...
