2nd Week In A Row - Napolitano Gives Delay the 'Law Is Too Complicated' Excuse

Reported by Donna - October 4, 2005

Last week I reported that Judge Andrew Napolitano said that Tom Delay can offer the defense that it is such a complicated law, that he had to ask lawyers what to do, therefore, he is not guilty.

Today on Studio B with Shepard Smith, Napolitano repeated this same excuse. He said that Delay's defense will be twofold, 1, that he wasn't involved in this and 2, the law was too complicated and that's why he used lawyers.

Discussion between Smith and Napolitano this time did focus on the fact that last week's charge only carried a possible two year jail sentence. These new charges carry up to a 99 year jail sentence.

Napolitano added that Delay would receive a jury that wasn't from Sugarland, but from a highly liberal county that would either not know him or would know him and dislike his politics.

Comments: Since when is ignorance of the law a defense? Maybe that only applies to certain Republican Congressmen who raise large amounts of money for their party.
