HOUSTON (Reuters) - An arrest warrant was issued on Wednesday and bail set at $10,000 for former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay ahead of his first appearance in court on money laundering and conspiracy charges.

The warrant ordered by state District Judge Bob Perkins in Austin, Texas, called upon any Texas law enforcement officer to arrest DeLay, but he was expected to turn himself in voluntarily.

The issuance of the warrant, said Travis County Grand Jury Clerk Linda Estrada, was a "purely procedural event" but would require that DeLay surrender to authorities and be fingerprinted and photographed like anyone under felony indictment in Texas.

Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle, who has led the investigation into DeLay's campaign finance activities, said in a statement he had not requested the arrest warrant, but also had not objected to it.

"We believe that Congressman DeLay should be treated like everyone else," he said.

News reports said DeLay attorney Dick DeGuerin was negotiating with officials in Fort Bend County in DeLay's district near Houston for the congressman to turn himself in there on Thursday, but neither DeLay nor DeGuerin would comment.

DeLay is scheduled to make his first court appearance on Friday before Perkins, and a DeGuerin spokeswoman confirmed he would be there.

For some reason, this makes me very happy. Im sure we can all come together in the hope that all republicans are tarred and feathered.

No kidding, he could go to jail for life and his bail is less than he probably carries in his back pocket. Meh, what else would you expect from "democracy" today?
