Litigation Season ’08

Elections are becoming for lawyers what tax season is for accountants.

The Clinton campaign is urging its lawyer supporters to head to Texas this weekend, with a goal of having at least one lawyer present to monitor each county and state Senate convention site.

On the GOP side, TPMmuckraker has learned, vote-suppression guru Hans von Spakovsky, formerly of the U.S. Justice Department, will be giving a talk next week to the L.A. chapter of the Federalist Society titled “Litigating Elections: the Campaign Process in 2008.”
