DeLay Draws Another Democrat

With two judges recused from the prosecution of Rep. Tom DeLay because of their political donations, Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Wallace Jefferson -- a Republican whose 2002 campaign treasurer had ties to Texans for a Republican Majority, the organization involved in the prosecution -- appointed retired San Antonio judge Pat Priest to preside over the trial.  Apparently, Judge Priest has made only modest campaign contributions, according to a Washington Post story (here), involving only three $150 checks to Democrats in the 2004 election cycle.  Then again, even those modest contributions may bring us the sequel, Recusal Motion, Part Deux, from the defense camp.
