From what I've read so far, it is trying to be passed off as a Democratic conspiracy. I mean, look at all those Democrats on the jury! And DeLay himself is blaming "rogue" DA and Democrats (http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/tom-delay ... d=12248623
). What I'm interested in seeing is if the circumstantial evidence gets flipped on its head in the appeal, because it SEEMS to be the case that they did this through a legal/economic loophole. That's what allowed the defense to say "look, it's not the SAME money..."
