Whispers


Nick with the Fort Bend ticket

Busy as a bee today, but here's a few rumors in the wind:

1. Will the high court address redistricting before the session ends in a week and a half? Imagine for a moment the possible remedies...What if the court returned district lines to their former boundaries? Answer: Pure unadulterated chaos.

2. There may be a new entry into the twisted beauty pageant to replace DeLay on the ballot. The consensus among a lot of GOP big-shots is that none of the currently declared clowns look promising.

3. Ergo, there may be one more lawsuit in this mess - A challenge to the gang of four based on the proportionality argument. The claim is this: Since Brazoria and Galveston counties have far fewer residents in CD22 than Fort Bend and Harris, they should not have an equal say in picking the nominee. However, TEC designates another way to pick a candidate: Selection by the Executive Committee of the Texas Republican Party. But long story short, this race could be in the courthouse until August.

4. Not really a rumor, but more of a fact: It is impossible to raise $2 million in three months.

The latest rumor of a well-known Fort Bend elected official plotting to challenge the portionality of 4 votes is true. Fort Bend Republicans can find the courthouse, too.

Any such challenge would be the quickest way of ensuring that the candidate from CD22 will from Harris County.
