Earle Wants More than Just 15 Minutes of Fame

(National Review) For the last two years, as he pursued the investigation that led to Wednesday's indictment of House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, Travis County, Texas prosecutor Ronnie Earle has given a film crew "extraordinary access" to make a motion picture about his work on the case.

Apparently The resulting film is called The Big Buy, made by Texas filmmakers Mark Birnbaum and Jim Schermbeck, and is about Tom DeLay. It is a Texas noir political detective story that chronicles what some are calling a 'bloodless coup with corporate cash.

Apparently, they tried to get interviews and such with DeLay, but have not been granted any time. However, Earle has been a bit more “generous” with his time. Whether DeLay is guilty or not, this is starting to look a bit like the story of a Glory Hound looking for his cash-cow.
