That's Some Catch, That District 22

A federal judge ruled today that Republicans cannot replace former U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay on the ballot for the 22nd Congressional District race. ...

DeLay had sought to have state Republican Chair Tina Benkiser declare him ineligible by moving from Sugar Land to his condominium in Virginia. But Sparks said that would not make him ineligible because the requirement under the Constitution is whether DeLay is an inhabitant of Texas on election day.

Sparks said contradicting evidence raised questions about whether DeLay planned to remain a resident of Virginia, but he said that did not matter because DeLay could not say where he would be on election day. ...

DeLay, dressed in shorts and a baseball cap, answered the door at his Sugar Land house this afternoon, but declined to talk with a Chronicle reporter.

"I don't do this (interviews). Not at my house," he said as he closed the door. "Goodbye."
"There are some things I don't do."
--Frank White, in King of New York

The *not at my house* part is certainly "telling" of waht a sham these guys will go to to scam the system.

Nice. Tom DeLay's last attempt to screw Texas - and the electoral system - and the GOP gets screwed instead.

Hopefully just the beginning of the karma that he and they so richly deserve.
