Is RoBold the snitch?
Ever since Travis County DA Ronnie Earle indicted Tom DeLay on the initial charge of conspiracy, and especially since he heaped on two more indictments based on "additional information" he received last weekend, DeLay watchers have been reading the tea leaves trying discern who might have agreed to testify against Mr. Big.
In today's Roll Call, there's an article (sub.req.) by John Bresnahan, devoted almost entirely to the voluble denials from DeLay's alleged co-conspirators Jim Ellis John Colyandro, each insisting that they haven't cut a deal.
But sticking out like a sore thumb in Bresnahan's piece is the second graf which reads ...
A lawyer for a third DeLay associate who also is under indictment in the Texas probe, Warren RoBold, did not return calls seeking comment on whether he is cooperating with Earleâs investigation.
RoBold isn't quite the insider that Ellis and Colyandro are. So perhaps he's decided it's time to cut his losses, turn the tables and nail the hammer?
