"In respectful tones, DeGuerin noted that Perkins had donated money to MoveOn.org, a liberal organization that he said has been 'selling T-shirts with Mr. DeLay's mug shot on it.'
'Let me just say I haven't ever seen that T-shirt, number one. Number two, I haven't bought it. Number three, the last time I contributed to MoveOn that I know of was prior to the November election last year, when they were primarily helping Sen. Kerry,' responded the judge.
'All we want is a fair trial and a fair tribunal,' DeGuerin told reporters outside the courthouse.
Prosecutor Ronnie Earle signaled he intends to contest the request for a new judge.
'What this means is if a judge had contributed to Crime Stoppers that judge could not hear a burglary case,' Earle said. 'Carried to its extreme, that is what I think this motion means and I think that's absurd.'"
You go, Ronnie! I've seen the mugshot. It sucks! Where's the real shot, you know, with the numbers and height lines?
