buckham, harris: toast

* tpm:
"In Texas, federal appeals court rules Tom DeLay must remain on the ballot.
Update: The Texas Republicans say they'll appeal the ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court."
* emptywheel has more on DeLay, as usual.

* emptywheel:
"Joe Lieberman argued that the Iraq war was the best way to solve a problem that turned out to be illusory. And not only has that "solution" caused a slew of problems. But it has prevented us from addressing the ones we already had. A vote against Lieberman "because of the war" is about a lot more than one vote to support the war."
* tpmm:
"At least four former aides to Rep. Katherine Harris (R-FL) have now been contacted or interviewed by the FBI as part of a widening investigation into wrongdoing by lawmakers and special interests.

* tpmm:
"National Journal reports (not available online) that FBI agents have been interviewing former aides to onetime House Speaker Tom DeLay (R-TX) about Ed Buckham, formerly one of DeLay's closest aides. They have also spoken with former advisors to Buckham's sham charity, the U.S. Family Network, about Buckham.
