Looks like Delay is actually going to pay the price:
AUSTIN, Texas — Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, once considered among the nation's most powerful and feared lawmakers, was sentenced to three years in prison Monday for a scheme to influence elections that already cost him his job, leadership post and millions of dollars in legal fees.

The sentence comes after a jury in November convicted DeLay, a Houston-area Republican, on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering for using a political action committee to illegally send corporate donations to Texas House candidates in 2002.
Gotta love all the teabagger rhetoric about corruption and "the crimes of the Obama Administration" *fartz* while one of the most important Republican of the last while is literally going to prison for committing real crimes.
