    I seldom do gun reviews. They take a lot of time to do right; many others are already doing them. That doesn't mean I won't comment on items that deserve it.Taurus TX22 Pistol I mentioned the Taurus TX22 from the Shot Show last year. I was impressed with the pistol. I recently acquired one, by purchase, at the normal price. It is an impressive pistol, a great choice for nearly everything a .22 pistol is called upon to do. I have had a hard time finding serious accuracy testing of the pistol online, so I did what I could...

    South Carolina's unexpected Democratic nominee for the US Senate, mystery man Alvin Greene, says he wants to play golf with Barack Obama. But in Texas, another surprise Democratic primary winner, congressional nominee Kesha Rogers, wants to impeach the President. So while South Carolina party officials are still unsure of what to do about Greene's success at the ballot box, Texas Democrats have no such reservations — they wasted little time in casting Rogers into exile and offering no support or recognition of her campaign to win what once was Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay's old seat. Rogers, 33, told TIME...

    Houston Chronicle ^ | Oct. 26, 2008 | Alan Bernsetin
    ABSTRACT: Two Houston-area congressmen under political siege likely face opposite fates in the Nov. 4 election, according to a poll conducted for the Houston Chronicle. U.S. Rep. Nick Lampson, D-Stafford, trailed Republican challenger Pete Olson by 17 percentage points early last week, according to the survey by Zogby International. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points. U.S. Rep. John Culberson, R-Houston, led Democratic challenger Michael Skelly more modestly, by 7 percentage points, with virtually the same margin of error. In both Republican-friendly districts, a key factor appeared to be the Democratic candidates' inability...

But Lampson has been an effective lawmaker. Still, he faces a strong GOP challenger in Pete Olson and the district is very Republican. If Lampson holds on, it will symbolize the GOP's lost opportunities of 2008. 10.25.08 Fox News: This is Tom DeLay's old seat. DeLay made the seat less Republican...

    - - Nick Lampson's Voter Fraud Attacks on Pete Olson "Ironic" HOUSTON - As news came out that the FBI was investigating the liberal organization ACORN for voter fraud, Houston-area conservatives blasted Rep. Nick Lampson for his recent, baseless allegations against Pete Olson. CCM members called on Nick Lampson to repudiate ACORN's actions, citing Congressman Nick Lampson's consistent support of ACORN's legislative efforts in Washington. "I find it ironic that Nick Lampson would make these half-baked, egregious allegations of voter fraud against Pete Olson, when in reality he supports an extremely controversial organization that is currently under investigation by the...

Key questions in the Houston-area race between Democratic U.S. Rep. Nick Lampson and Republican former Senate aide Pete Olson are whether Lampson has earned his middle-of-the-road stripes — and whether his political career will die there Nov. 4. Lampson has tried to relieve the odd fit ever since, saying...

    Fort Bend County – Monday’s debate between District 22’s U.S. Representative Nick Lampson and his Republican challenger Pete Olson lasted a little over an hour. From the moment it started it was certainly charged. The debate was their one and only meeting on the campaign trail, and it was peppered with attacks and wise cracks. Even with the spirited debate, there is still a question as to which direction the district will fall. It is Tom Delay's old seat, and he gave up under a cloud of legal problems and ethical questions. After Delay resigned, election laws kept Republicans off...

    SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Republicans are still hot over the loss of two congressional districts to Democrats in 2006 — especially the one that had been held by House Majority Leader Tom DeLay — and they're looking to win them back this fall. But first, they must choose their challengers in the March 4 primary. Both seats drew multiple GOP candidates eager to take on incumbent Democratic Reps. Nick Lampson in the 22nd District and Ciro Rodriguez in the 23rd District. National Republicans have set their sights on finding someone who might evict Lampson and Rodriguez in November. "These are...

Also new to the race is Kevyn Bazzy, a U.S. Army reservist with a background in military intelligence. By the filing deadline Tuesday, here are the candidates, along with details of...

    WASHINGTON — The turmoil in newly elected Rep. Shelley Sekula-Gibbs' office deepened Thursday with the Houston Republican demanding a congressional investigation of aides who quit in a mass walkout earlier this week. Sekula-Gibbs said the staffers, holdovers from her predecessor Tom DeLay, deleted records from the office's computers Monday, the day before seven of them resigned in apparent protest of their treatment. "As public servants, they have harmed the 22nd Congressional District and they have brought shame to this office," Sekula-Gibbs said in a statement. "I have a duty to investigate." Sekula-Gibbs was elected to complete DeLay's term. Democrat Nick...

Rep. Shelley Sekula-Gibbs (R-Tex.), who is warming the 22nd District seat for only a few weeks, said that former DeLay employees apparently deleted the office's computer files shortly before they walked out, en masse, on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON - New evidence is emerging that the top Democrat on the Senate committee currently investigating Jack Abramoff got political money arranged by the lobbyist back in 2002 shortly after the lawmaker took action favorable to Abramoff's tribal clients. A lawyer for the Louisiana Coushatta Indians told The Associated Press that Abramoff instructed the tribe to send $5,000 to Sen. Byron Dorgan (news, bio, voting record)'s political group just three weeks after the North Dakota Democrat urged fellow senators to fund a tribal school program Abramoff's clients wanted to use.The check was one of about five dozen the Coushattas listed...
