  •  It is different, unfortunately... (none)
    Gawd, don't I wish I could reject some visiting judges.  You would figure that the rules would be more liberal when it involves someone's liberty than when it involves money.
    •  The fact that it's not... (none) really a classic example of the way things are done in Texas, though, you have to admit.

      I'm fucking glad it's different. It means DeLay's goose is being cooked, with Priest about to be running the ingredients. You can bet they are partying in the Travis County DA's office. It's a good time to be on staff there.

      you'd expect it to be the other way around.  That would be consistant w/ "reasonable doubt" and "preponderance of evidence" standards.  In that case it is harder to be convicted for a crime because you risk loosing your liberty.
