6 more named in funding inquiry (Texas GOP)
AUSTIN - A national Republican Party official, a former lobbyist and the Weatherford lawmaker who drew the state's new congressional map are among the people ordered to provide records to a grand jury investigating accusations of illegal fund raising, court documents filed Friday show.

The latest wave of subpoenas -- nine in all -- is part of an expanded investigation of 2002 fund raising, which now includes the race for House speaker. That contest produced the first Republican speaker, Tom Craddick of Midland, since Reconstruction.

1. OUTSTANDING
I couldn't believe it when I saw this reported in the Dallas Whoring News. Am SALIVATING at the thought of a "Goodhair" Perry scandal too.

I'm actually reading the Houston Comical since they're reporting on this...the fund raising, that is, not the (alleged) Goodhair "dalliance".

3. Here's Hoping The DA Can Make A Case And Run With It!
Here's hoping that the Travis County, Texas district attorney can make a successful, appeal-proof criminal prosecution of those rascals.

Schadenfreude--Catch The Fever!

4. Wow! This thing is getting better and better, CatWoman.
Unreturned phone calls, no comments, etc.

You couldn't SHUT these guys up when the Democrats had gone to Oklahoma and New Mexico, last year.

I hate to hope for much, but it would be BEAUTIFUL to see justice here, FOR ONCE IN A LIFETIME!
