|No ruling expected for two weeks in DeLay case During today's hearing, defense lawyers argued that prosecutors had failed to allege any crime, saying the conspiracy law did not apply to either the state's election code or to money laundering in 2002. They also said the transfer of $190,000 of corporate money to the Republican National Committee was legal, as was the RNC's subsequent contribution of $190,000 to seven Texas candidates.

From my IT guy Dan:
"With the ever growing RASH of spam and phishing emails that we get almost daily, I am passing along a little tool that will help you not become a victim of one of these scoundrels."
