CCA denies motion for rehearing

No story just yet, but thanks to Vince's news alert feeds, I can tell you that the Court of Criminal Appeals has denied the motions made by Travis County DA Ronnie Earle to reconsider its to let stand the dismissal of the conspiracy charge against Tom DeLay. Looks like my initial skepticism was accurate, despite Paul Burka's persuasive case otherwise. So at long last, we're at the point where the next step in the process is an actual trial for Tom DeLay. Better get him before the feds do, Ronnie. More later when this hits the wires.

UPDATE: Here's a Chron story. I expect we'll get more, with quotes, later.
