Sparks orders another halt to GOP's effort to replace Delay

No official ruling on the merrits yet, but the mercurial Sparks orders the GOP to cease the process the replace DeLay, at least until the end of the week.


U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks made it clear Monday afternoon that he considered former U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay’s maneuvering to get off the ticket a "withdrawal" by the candidate and the Sugar Land Republican’s subsequent moves to be declared ineligible a way to game the system.
Sparks gave attorneys for the Democrats until the end of the week to file additional papers. He promised a judgment as soon as possible but acknowledged his decision would likely be appealed. "Nothing as important as this stops at my door," he said.

You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows...

UPDATE: Getting conflicting reports on whether Sparks has ordered that local executive committies take not action. It seems his prohibition probably just applies to Bensiker, preventing her from taking steps to replace DeLay on the ballot. So the local groups are likely free to meet.

Does this mean that the Harris County Republicans can't hold their selection meetings? Somebody better tell them because they still have it planned.
