Congressman Tom Delay Wins Election, Despite Corruption Scandal

Do Americans care about corruption? I think not. I expected this guy to win, because as I have said, people in these Republican districts vote on 1 or 2 religious/social issues.

The fact that this guy is a criminal, and is thoroughly corrupt seems to have no impact on their vote.This was just a primary vote...but in heavily republican Texas, that IS the vote, because there is no democratic opposition. Many of the seats in Texas (and most of the Southern U.S.) go uncontested. How's that for "Democracy".

The U.S. is about as democratic as Iran.
