Relentless scoundrel, Jesus Jumping Bible Banger, and former house majority leader, known as “The Hammer,” and contestant on “Dancing with the Stars”   has been sentenced to three years in prison.  His lawyer begged the judge for probation but the judge, who could have sentenced this hypocrite to life, refused, ordering instead that The Hammer needs to do his time for money laundering.

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) has been sentenced to three years in prison, the AP and the Austin-American Statesman are reporting.

Texas Judge Pat Priest handed down the sentence this afternoon in an Austin courtroom.

DeLay was convicted in November on money laundering and conspiracy charges. His lawyers asked for the minimum sentence, probation. Prosecutors asked for at least 10 years in prison.

According to the Statesman, Priest sentenced DeLay to three years on the conspiracy charge.

The charges stem from the 2002 Texas state house elections, when DeLay’s state PAC collected $190,000 in corporate donations and sent the money to the Republican National Committee. The RNC then sent a total of $190,000 to seven Republican state house candidates hand-picked by DeLay’s PAC.

Under Texas law, it is illegal for candidates to use corporate money — raised directly or indirectly — for their campaigns.

Tip o’ the hat to Dusty for the picture…
