A refresher on the what the hearing is about
Perkins has contributed money to several Democratic candidates and organizations, including 2004 presidential candidate John Kerry and Moveon.org, a liberal interest group waging a "Fire Tom DeLay" campaign through radio ads.
Duncan is a very fair judge and down to earth. He has a long fast rule with friends. They stay friends by never discussing religion or politics.
Duncan retired in 1988 and took senior judge status and travels around the state to serve as a visiting judge. He no longer has to run for office, so he contributes to who he wants. He no longer has to play politics.
Colleagues say the judge is too seasoned and independent to bow to the political pressure that might come from a high-profile case like DeLay's.
Since DeLay's lawyer, Dick Deguerin is known for his theatrics, this is going to be fun to keep up with. I'll put my money on the Judge any day of the week.
The hearing date, to hear the motion to recuse Judge Perkins, is set for Nov. 1st in Austin, Tx.
