Here's a question: Why isn't Tom DeLay in a jail cell?

Once again House Majority Leader Tom DeLay finds himself being censured by the House Ethics Committee. His most egregious ethics violation was offering another House member money for his son's Congressional campaign, in exchange for a vote. For this, DeLay was chastised by the House.

If I, or any other normal citizen, had offered the same compenasation for the same vote, it would be called bribery, and we'd be sitting in jail awaiting trial in federal court. Why shouldn't DeLay be subject to the same laws as you or me?
