The Bugman's New Routine

Shaker Deborah pointed me to this story at MSNBC, with the note: “I wants me some televised perp walk!” You know, I wants me some of that, too.

A Texas court issued a warrant Wednesday for former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to appear for booking, where he is likely to face the fingerprinting and photo mug shot he had hoped to avoid.

Bail was initially set at $10,000 as a routine step before his first court appearance on conspiracy and money laundering charges. Travis County court officials said DeLay was ordered to appear at the Fort Bend County jail for booking.

The warrant was “a matter of routine and bond will be posted,” DeLay attorney Dick DeGuerin said.
All routine. Just another former House Majority Leader being arrested, getting fingerprinted, and having his mug shot taken. Nothing to see here. Move along. It’s all routine, people!

Shakers, set your browers to The Smoking Gun. Full steam ahead.
