Judges are dropping like flies in the DeLay case. After the original judge, Bob Perkins, was removed due to his contributions to liberal groups, now the administrative judge in charge of selecting a new judge has withdrawn at the request of Ronnie Earle. The Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice (a Republican) will select a new judge.
Oh, the name of the administrative judge now removed? B.B. Schraub. There's no relation, but my father did at one point contact him by mail and try to establish any connections. Seemed like a nice guy. Still, I like being the most prominent Schraub on the net, and am glad that a potential threat to that position has been pushed aside.
