Delay loses fight to get off the ballot

Oh damn, this is sweet:
Federal District Court Judge Sam Sparks just ruled in favor of Texas Democrats who sought an injunction to prevent Republicans in Texas Congressional District 22 from replacing Tom DeLay on the congressional ballot.
Texas Democrats argued that the U.S. Constitution, not State law, defines eligibility to serve in the U.S. Congress. Judge Sparks agreed.

This is really, really bad news for Delay. TX-22 is pretty damn Republican, but they hate Tommy boy now that he's covered in filth. If he can't get off the ballot before November, he will probably lose his own seat. To a Democrat.

Justice: Tom Delay rigs the Ethics Committee to escape punishment, only to face political execution at the polls.
