Today Tom Delay was cleared of conspiracy charges. The charges were brought earlier in the fall by a Democrat prosecutor in Texas.
While Delay still faces money laundering charges, Delay's defense team has moved to have those charges dismissed as well.
The Democrats have based an important part of their public message on the idea that the Republican Party is corrupt, the dismissal of charges against Delay is a serious blow to the credibility of many Democrat officials and Democrat writers.
This follows a pattern where Democrats have made baseless charges against prominent Republicans only to see charges eventually dropped. In the past couple of months Democrats have alleged charges against Delay, Vice President Cheney, Senate Majority Leader Frist, Karl Rove, and Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline, only to see those charges dismissed or proven baseless.
