Best Hammer Hunters: Travis County District Attorney

Nailing Tom "The Hammer" DeLay for money laundering is like collaring Al Capone for tax evasion, but after a decade of legal and political fights, this year the staff of the Public Integrity Unit finally gave Travis County residents and all Texas voters the justice they deserved: Three years in prison and 10 years probation for the great gerrymanderer. He may be out on parole, but at least now we all get to say "convicted felon Tom DeLay." Thanks, Travis County D.A.
