Video of Katherine Harris's announcement

If you'd like to hear Katherine Harris in her own words and in her own, ahem, unique style, visit Crooks and Liars.

Tell Katherine Harris elections aren't for sale. Period.

We just sent this email (below the fold) out to our list of activists -- can you believe that Katherine Harris is trying to wash away her legacy with $10 million? Can you believe that she thinks people will forget that she abandoned the principle of oneperson, one vote in 2000? That  somehow spending $10 million makes it okay to have taken illegal campaign contributions. Our petition is here.

DeLay Judge Throws Out Earle Subpoenas

A state appeals court yesterday threw out more than 30 subpoenas issued by Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle in the criminal case against Tom DeLay.

The court said that the subpoenas are null while the case is on hold. In December, the district court stayed the case, after Earle appealed a decision by Senior Judge Pat Priest to dismiss a conspiracy charge against DeLay.
