Democratic Party Games

You gotta hand it to the Donks - they’re consistent. Consistently stupid and crooked, that is. This latest ploy of theirs is just another way for them to grab a House seat with underhanded means. Typical bulls**t from the Party Of Idiots, Whiners And Losers. They want to keep DeLay on the ticket so they can make an issue out of him. They don’t have the guts to let the GOP choose another candidate after DeLay resigned. Then they’d have to actually compete with someone. They’d rather do it in this backhanded manner. Stoopid Donk Asshats!

Democrats File Suit To Keep
Tom DeLay On The November Ballot

June 08, 2006, 12 44 pm

In a surprise twist to the Tom DeLay saga, the Texas Democratic Party filed suit Thursday in an attempt to keep the resigning Republican Congressman’s name on the November ballot. The suit, filed in Travis County 126th District Court, seeks to undo an hours-old declaration by Republican Party Chair Tina Benkiser that DeLay is ineligible to run in the general election.

If DeLay doesn’t serve as the party’s candidate for Congressional District 22, then according to the Texas Election Code, no other candidate is allowed to replace him, the suit says. Lawyers for Houston’s Riddle & Brazil law firm, which filed the action, obtained a temporary restraining order at about 5:10 p.m. from Judge Darlene Byrne. Sources familiar with the case said the order prevents Benkiser from calling a meeting of the so-called District Executive Committee or taking other measures to replace DeLay as the Republican Party nominee for CD-22.

Benkiser, the only defendant named in the suit, could not be reached for comment Thursday afternoon. Officials at state Republican Party headquarters didn’t return a call for comment. DeLay announced in early April that he would resign from Congress, move from Sugar Land to Virginia and thus be ineligible to run for re-election on the November general election ballot. Benkiser formally declared him ineligible Wednesday night.

DeLay spokeswoman Shannon Flaherty expressed disdain over the legal action. “Mr. DeLay is now a resident of Virginia and ineligible to run for office in Texas,” she said. “The party of baseless, frivolous lawsuits is at it again, and the only surprise is it took them more than 30 minutes to file it.” The lawsuit says DeLay never intended to complete his run for re-election, and instead schemed to collect campaign contributions and convert them to his own use.

“DeLay deceived voters into giving him ‘campaign contributions’ – money he intends to use to pay his attorneys to defend him from criminal charges...” the suit states. “DeLay has finally let voters in on his true intent: he wants to have his name removed from the ballot in November and replaced with another candidate while keeping the money contributed to his primary campaign, in clear violation of the Texas Election Code,” the lawsuit says.

- More Donk silliness here ...

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
