Might want to read my post again. I wished the IRS didn't get involved as I'm perfectly fine with the GOP consultants screwing their party and candidates over.
Ive been staying out of this, and kind of wished the IRS did as well, but not for the reasons you might expect. A disproportionate number of these tea party fundraising groups are basically scams to line the conservative political consulting classes pockets. Very little of this money actually elects anybody. The first beneficiary is the GOP consultants, the indirect beneficiary are Democrats, because the money doesn't actually get used for its intended purposes of...
It probably does. It's the one jurisdiction where being a lawyer doesn't practically excuse you from being on a jury, simply because otherwise there may not be enough people for a jury.
the kobe bean don't fall very far from the jelly bean tree.
Hillary is really the only winner on the Democratic side, if only by attrition. From the medias point of view, her potential opponents included Warner in VA, O'Malley in MD, Biden, and Cuomo (talk about a regional, racial, and gender bias; every single one of these guy is white male cover by a major media market); Warner barely held on, O'Malley's guy lost in MD, and Joe Biden is Obama's VP, in addition to still being Joe Biden.Cuomo's the only guy left as he won last...
Fairfax County always comes in late. GOP needs to be up by a lot in the early votes, otherwise the Democrat will catch them as the returns come in.In the end, Warner was beatable. Gillepsie should have never taken his foot off the pedal; he essentially conceded a few weeks back and it turns out it was closer than he realized.
Right now I think the net result will be 53-47, GOP control. I think, however, it will take a few months as I think Orman will win in KS, and GA and LA will go to runoff. Orman will announce who he is caucusing with after the GOP gets that 51st Senator, which will depend on runoff dates. I think the Dems will win only one of the NC, CO, and Iowa triumvirate.
Atlanta's ownership groupings (yes, I use plurals on purpose) is dysfunctional. Levenson wants the other group to buy him out and this is as good of a time as any, with the 2 billion sale of the clippers being part of the valuation.
Venue would be in Austin because the statehouse is in Austin. The group would be based in Austin because most of the evidence and acts would be likely to be in Austin, especially any investigation into pay to play lobbying and campaign donation scandals.(Edit: distance from TX Statehouse to Travis County courthouse - 1.7 miles; the Travis County DA's office is one block (possibly across the street) from the Travis County Courthouse. This sub two mile distance is...
According to the main Austin and Houston papers, it appears that Travis County DA and other Democratic officials from Travis county recused themselves. According the Houston paper, a Republican judge then appointed the special prosecutor that put out the indictment and is handling the...
