Grand jury foreman speaks out

The indicted Tom DeLay (which we will now henceforth label him, until we tire of it) has been swinging at District Attorney Ronnie Earle for months, calling Earle partisan and proclaiming the whole proceedings are about politics. But I just found this great nugget from the long AP story (which allows the indicted Tom DeLay more than equal time, if you ask me):

However, the grand jury's foreman, William Gibson, told The Associated Press that Earle didn't pressure members to indict DeLay. "Ronnie Earle didn't indict him. The grand jury indicted him," Gibson said in an interview at his home.

Gibson, 76, a retired sheriff's deputy, said of DeLay: "He's probably doing a good job. I don't have anything against him. Just something happened."
