Texas: DeLay subpoenas judge to recusal hearing

AP reports: Democratic state district Judge Bob Perkins has been subpoenaed to testify Tuesday at a hearing to determine whether he is too biased to preside over U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay's criminal case.

DeLay's attorneys want Perkins replaced as the presiding judge because of multiple contributions he's made to Democrats.

Perkins filed a motion to quash the subpoena to avoid testifying. He cited previous court rulings that support a judge's absence in his own recusal hearings. ...

DeLay's attorneys have cited 34 political contributions Perkins made to Democrats since 2000, including donations to MoveOn.org, a liberal advocacy group that has waged a campaign against DeLay and generally attacks Republicans and their policies. -- AP Wire | 10/31/2005 | Judge under fire by DeLay subpoenaed to testify
