*Ding*Ding*Ding* Round Two: Ronnie Earle

In what looks like is going to be an ongiong battle, a second judge has been removed from the trial of indicted former Majority Leader Tom DeLay for money laundering and conspiracy.

Administrative Judge B.B. Schraub has recused himself after D.A. Ronnie Earle filed a motion to have Schraub removed from the case, based on his past contributions to Republican candidates, including Gov. Rick Perry, a prominent ally of Tom DeLay.

Schraub said he will ask the Chief Justice of the Texas Supreme Court to name a judge to preside over the case.

"Governor Perry was a major figure in the redistricting effort that the (DeLay) successfully argued," Earle said in his motion. "Because Judge Schraub has donated to Governor Perry, he has disclosed through this free speech that he agrees in principle with Perry's agenda regarding Tom DeLay's redistricting map."


  • Supreme court judge also removed

    Chief Justice removed

    You can play musical chairs, all you want Delay. It will just mean the trial gets moved out of state and a NON-PARTISAN judge with no connection to the scandal, will have to hear the case.
