It's About The Appearance Of Impropriety

They really used this as an excuse. These people are so disconnected from reality that they can't even tell. I know someone who is diagnosed as paranoid and even she checks in with reality occaisionally.
Defense Wins New Judge in DeLay Case: "'He's not the right judge for this case,' said DeLay's lawyer, Dick DeGuerin, after the ruling. 'It's not personal; it's not about him. It's about the appearance of impropriety.'

DeLay, who stepped down as majority leader in September after his indictment, left the courtroom smiling but did not take questions from reporters.

DeGuerin said the next motion to be heard in the case by a newly appointed judge will be a request to move DeLay's trial out of heavily Democratic Travis County."
Black people never got or get to move any of their trials out of a heavily caucasian area. OJ had to pay for some really good lawyers to help him and they still didn't get to move venues or prevent tv cameras in the courtroom. Money and power change the rules and in this case "the good ole boy" network looks like it kicked into gear. Now it seems if you intend to serve in the judicial branch, you must never express or have a personal opinion of your own, you must never contribute to any type of cause or campaign, because you don't know when it might be held against you by the current party in power. No thinking allowed. Nice country we have here.

What does it say to the people who elected you, that you don't trust their judgement and you want to go somewhere else for a "fair and impartial" hearing? If he had done a good job for his district wouldn't they support him and give him the benefit of the doubt?

Just a thought.
