It took prosecutors years to convict former Sugar Land Congressman Tom Delay and critics say the prosecution was just politics. Now his appeal is dragging along.
But Delay Attorney Brian Wice says there was some progress this week. A justice the defense says is biased against Delay because of remarks she made in 2006 was ordered to step aside this week and Wice is brimming with confidence.
3rd Court of Appeals Justice Diane Henson, who refused KTRH's request for comment, was removed from the case.
"If we win, when we win it's gonna be like a 15 seed beating a two in the big dance. It happens; it doesn't happen very often and when it does I think you really get to say 'hey, we shocked the world.'"
Wice says he won't even consider a date Delay might have to report to prison.
"In the words of major league prospect Bryce Harper 'I think that's a clown question, bro' and I'm not gonna answer it."
Delay was sentenced to three years in prison for money laundering in an investigation that began nine years ago.
