The "I Don't Get It" Defense

Otherwise known as our clients are, uhhh, too stupid. Austin-American Statesman (08.22.06), via The Muckraker, by way of The Stakeholder:
"The law that helped drive Tom DeLay from the U.S. House and put two of his allies under criminal indictment can't be understood by the 'man in the street,' defense lawyers argued Tuesday. Lawyers for Jim Ellis and John Colyandro, two DeLay lieutenants who operated the Texans for a Republican Majority political action committee during the 2002 campaign, argued that the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals should throw out the indictments against their clients because the state's ban on corporate campaign money is confusing." Lawyers want DeLay-related indictments tossed
