Texas style justice

I do admit to a case of schadenfreude from Tom DeLay's misfortune, but when I read today's WaPo articleabout DeLay's two newest indictments, I almost spit my tea all over the computer.
Both money-laundering crimes are more serious felonies, and the maximum punishment is life in prison
(emphasis mine)

I guess what they say is true, everything is bigger in Texas, even the punishment for washing a little cash.
