    (CNN) -- Jury selection is scheduled to begin Tuesday in the trial of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who is charged with illegally funneling corporate money to help elect GOP candidates to the Texas legislature.

    The Republican was indicted in 2005 on charges he illegally sent $190,000 in corporate money through the Republican National Committee to help elect GOP Texas legislative candidates in 2002.

    DeLay, who resigned in 2006, has pleaded not guilty to money laundering and conspiracy. He has said the trial will clear him.

    With that red face of his, I'm surprised he hasn't stroked out by now. Hope he finally finds some peace and fades quickly out of the political realm.

    Most yes. I think he is down to under a hundred charges now.

    I sincerely hope he is convicted and has to live out the rest of his wretched life in prison.

    He spent years, bullying his fellow congressman and using his position of power to both illegally and unethically get what he wanted at the expense of others. He was/is a poster child for crooked politicians everywhere.

    He deserves everything he is about to get and then some.
