Judge Rules On TRMPAC

STATEMENT BY CHARLES SOECHTING

Judge Hart's landmark decision that TRMPAC failed to report $532,000 in
corporate contributions makes two things very clear: there was an illegal
conspiracy in 2002 to break Texas law, and Tom DeLay and Tom Craddick were at the center of that conspiracy.

Everything since then -- the takeover of state government by extremist
politicians paid for by corporate interests, the unprecedented mid-decade
redistricting to give the GOP seats it couldn't win at the ballot box, the
failure of Texas Republicans to address the state's most pressing public
policy challenges -- flows from the illegal conspiracy directed by Tom DeLay
and Tom Craddick.

Bankrupt public schools? Eligible children stripped of their health
insurance? Soaring college tuition rates? No ethics reform? The highest
homeowners' insurance rates in the nation? Blame it on the illegal
conspiracy directed by Tom DeLay and Tom Craddick.

TRMPAC violated state law, judge rules
The treasurer for Texans for a Republican Majority violated state election laws when he did not disclose more than $600,000 in corporate money the committee spent during the 2002 legislative campaigns, state District Judge Joe Hart ruled this morning.
