Justice Antonin Scalia on Monday afternoon denied the request of the Texas GOP to delay a federal appeals court ruling that requires the name of former Rep. Tom DeLay to remain on the congressional ballot for this fall's election. That ended the matter, since the Republican party's lawyer, James Bopp, Jr., said he would not renew the request with another member of the Court.
I must be reading that wrong. I thought Scalia was a Republican lapdog and simply did their bidding. Can someone point out the right-wing conspiracy in this move?
Perhaps he thought DeLay was a Democrat.
