A Texas judge today issued an arrest warrant for Congressman Tom DeLay, who has been indicted for state campaign finance violations, reports the Associated Press. The law does not demand that former House Majority Leader DeLay undergo the booking process, which includes being fingerprinted and mugshot. However, state District Judge Bob Perkins, who issued the warrant, appears determined to put DeLay through the process. Not surprisingly, Judge Perkins has a political ax to grind.  He is a leftwing activist who contributed $1,775 to MoveOn.org, John Kerry and the Democratic National Committee in 2004.

Judge Perkins conspicuously chose September 11, 2004 – the third anniversary of the 9/11 attack – to make his $200 donation to MoveOn.org.

A Florida-based Freeper calling himself “Recovering Democrat” discovered Judge Perkins’ conflict of interest by running a search at OpenSecrets.org, whereupon he posted his findings to FreeRepublic.com on Monday. (hat tip, FreeRepublic)

For some reason, DeLay’s Democratic counterpart, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, has not been arrested for doling out more than $100,000 in illegal campaign contributions to Democrat candidates in 2002. (via Roll Call).

  1. Sharikov says:

    Is this the kind of activity the leftist progressives describe as that of a police state?

  2. Rpettiet says:

    Due to the fact that they have indicted Mr. DeLay with a Money Laundering charge, a felony in the State of Texas. The arrest warrant is perfectly legal. Any charge from a Texas District court is a felony.

    While it is obviously a politically motivated charge by a left wing hack (Mr.Earle), Mr. Delay is subject to arrest by any Texas Peace Officer under the law in the State of Texas.

    If Mr. DeLay doesn’t turn himself in, the Sheriff of Travis County will be forced to enter the warrant in to NCIC (National Crime Information Center) and Mr. DeLay may be arrested by any law enforcement officer in the United States.

    Irregardless of Bob Perkins’ political affilation as a Judge he has immunity from any indictment. The only way to effectivly attack him would be to accuse him of Judicial misconduct.

    They have a saying in Austin, ” Keep Austin Weird”, and they are doing a good job of it.

    The beheading of Sir Thomas More was likewise undertaken in accordance with the formal procedures of English law. Even so, it signaled the onset of tyranny.

    That’s alright, it signals how desperate they are. Thank God for the internet.

  5. Rightminded says:

    The biggest threat to our freedom has nothing to do with terrorists! It has to do with 80% of the members of the ABA being registered, filthy, scum sucking Democrats!

    […] It starts first as just talk.  It doesn’t have to be true.  The media will make it walk.   It is that simple, that powerful, and that desperate.   Who makes it work?  Leftist judges, like Bob Perkins, the judge who has issued the arrest warrent for Tom Delay.   It is quite clear that the Left will use every judge they have in their pocket.   An indictment a wonderful way of delivering a deadly blow to an opponent.  […]

    Scumbag judge. F–k him.

    Excellent! With that paragraph, Mr. Poe nails it better than any source I have read on this topic! The essence of this politically-motivated, out of control prosecutor is pure, unadulterated hypocrisy, and the ongoing attacks against Rep. Delay reveal the Democratic Party’s commitment to double-standards.

  9. Publius says:

    The left first tried getting DeLay on charges of illegal junkets and nepotism, etc., but the internet jumped in and it was shown that a whole bunch of democ-rats were way ahead of DeLay on the list. He was in about the middle of the pack. As I remember, democ-rat Harry Reid was the king of nepotism.

  10. OlinHype says:

    What does Poe really know?

    He pounded out that 10-part WorldNetDaily series based on his 2004 WorldNetDaily-published book, “Hillary’s Secret War�? purporting to describe “how Hillary Clinton and the left’s ‘shadow government’ have labored to put her and her far-left agenda in the White House by controlling the still-uncensored flow of real news to Americans — via the Internet.”

    Poe’s WND series, however, is filled with uncorroborated statements and long-discredited assertions. Additionally, he bashes liberal billionaire George Soros and lionizes and whitewashes conservative billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife — while hiding the fact that Scaife plays a role in providing him a steady paycheck.

    Poe, you know, you are just a cheap, sheep-herding hypocrite.

    […] We conservatives need to rethink our tactics.  Now that Republican Congressman and former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has been arrested and booked at the order of a leftist judge, even the most complacent cigar-and-brandy-snifter Republican must be wondering whether the time has finally come to take off the gloves.  Stop wondering.  The time has come.  Our leftist adversaries make no pretense of following Marquis of Queensberry Rules, nor should we.

  13. Mr. Beamish says:

    Yeah, Richard Poe!

    Next time you get paid to write an article keep in mind that some idiot (for example, OlinHype) will compare you to the political groups being financed by George Soros.

    Which makes said financing okay, right? It’s okay that George Soros finances left-wing causes because Richard Poe writes articles about it?

    Leftists must cheat via the Soros method to win elections because asking them to field even a modestly intellectual idea to be debated would severely reveal their shortcomings. As “OlinHype” so effectively exemplified.

  14. kev says:

    olinhype: Re your #10. Please stop insinuating that Mr. Poe is a typical democrat! That’s unfair and below the belt!

  15. Moonbat Central » Blog Archive » DeLay: A Successful Smear? says:

    […] Richard Poe has clearly pointed out what is happening, and what the Republican response should be.   Even so, in the case of Tom DeLay, can we not at least hope that the obvious improprieties and abuses of the "Neo-Communist" Left will appall the public to the point of such intense disgust and outrage that the Left will be shunned like the plague?  […]
