Tom Delay claims Democratic judge is biased seeks new one

Wait a minute. You mean it does matter which party a judge supports?

Yet, we are supposed to accept Harriet Miers and John Roberts like it didn't.

One of them has already been confirmed already.

(From: Washington Post)

This is such an obvious tactic to get a partisan judge favoring Delay that judges everywhere should be outraged.

Rule of law: Everyone is treated the same.

Rule of Republicans: Whatever favors them works best.

Please note the poltics of personal destruction at work here. Either Rove has gotten an apprentice or the knee jerk use of personal destruction is much more ingrained into the Repbulican party than realized.

Delay's team focuses on Perkin's donations to Democrats, the DNC, and Move On (an organization started after the failed attempt to remove President Bill Clinton from office. An article in the New York Times reports that Delay's attorney, DeGuerin claimed that "Move On" was selling T-shirts with Tom Delay's mugshot on them.

But according to Houston Chronicle:
MoveOn issued a statement refuting DeGuerin's contention. The T-shirts were being produced by Public Campaign Action Fund, not by MoveOn...

DeGuerin later said he was wrong about the T-shirt, but noted MoveOn donated $150,000 to Public Campaign in 2004. Donnelly called the connection "ludicrous" and said DeLay just did not want to talk about why he was in court.

Ok so, over 9 months and up to 21 months ago Move On gave some money to PCAF and that is a direct connection with a mugshot t-shirt?

And this guy is a crack attorney? Maybe that's what they call a crack attorney in Texas. We have other names for it in my neck of the woods.

Back to the Washington Post article:

Get this:
DeLay's staff disclosed that he flew to Houston on Thursday morning on a corporate jet owned by R.J. Reynolds, a longtime contributor that has flown him to Puerto Rico and other destinations; they said the jet was "used in compliance with regulations." The company, which has also given $17,000 to DeLay's legal defense fund, did not have a comment Friday.

LOL The man is an addict!

BTW Tom, you can't fool all the people all the time:
But the indictments have already taken a toll on his political standing: A tracking poll in the Houston area, including his congressional district, by SurveyUSA on Oct. 10 for the first time showed that a plurality now supports his resignation from Congress.
