Sounds like the Travis County Javert is starting to feel a little more heat in light of his Hollywood debut plans having become so very public.
From a legal standpoint, Tom DeLay is entitled to have “Ronnie Earle the Movie” turned over in discovery. If Mr. Earle, playing himself (even Ben Affleck “wasn’t available”) is seen gabbing about the case and the evidence on film, it will most certainly be submitted as evidence of prosecutorial misconduct. It is hard to imagine that he isn’t trying the case in technicolor… after all, what would be the point of making a movie about a political corruption investigation if the hero is not going to do his best Mickey Spillane impersonation? The entertainment value may be priceless — who says farce is dead?
At any rate, even a Democrat Judge in Travis County may find it too difficult to allow the case to go forward. And with the evidence being so incredibly vague and flimsy, the movie gives the judge an airtight reason for saving the taxpayers’ time and money on this turkey of a case.
Prediction: Tom DeLay will walk. The movie will go straight to DVD and Ronnie Earle will have to return his SAG card for impersonating an actor.
