Despite a last-minute effort to rally Travis County to vote against Proposition 2, the gay marriage ban amendment passed overwhelmingly in Texas.
Texas became the 19th state to approve a constitutional ban of gay marriage as voters decided nine proposed amendments on Tuesday.
Now the rest of the story. Travis County, home to the Texas Branch of the "Let's Use the Courts to Get Us What We Can't Get at the Ballot Box" progressive liberal demoracists also is home to one of their chief operatives, Ronnie Earle, who is currently persecuting Representative Tom DeLay. Are you starting to understand why Tom DeLay wants his trial moved from Travis County to his home county of Fort Bend? On the one hand we have Travis County which we will codename "fruits and nuts county." On the other hand we have Fort Bend County which we will codename "jury of my peers county."
Judge Pat Priest will hold the first session of the trial on November 22 in Travis County. Tom DeLay could probably find an unbiased jury of his peers in almost any Texas county with the exception of Travis County. It is time for this ridiculous, politically motivated trial to go away. The charges are so problematic that they will probably be dropped and Ronnie Earle will return to being a bad memory.
