I know Bobby DeLaughter got removed from the bench, and there was some stuff about him and Trent Lott being connected, but I can't find his political party affiliation.
I know he ran for judge once and lost, but he got appointed later on (by a republican) but he was also appointed judge by a democrat.
Does anyone know, is his party republican or democrat, and is he a liberal or conservative?
Also, when he ran for judge the first time, on whose party line did he run?
FWIW, he was play by alex baldwin in the movie "ghosts of mississippi".
DeLaughter is a Democrat. Alec Balwdin would have never agreed to play him if he was a Republican.
I am pinging in the Mississippi folks to maybe give you some of the info that you are looking for. I will also suggest that you add www.yallpolitics.com to your bookmarks. The guys at YP have been doing a wonderful job covering this story and all things related to the Dickie Scruggs judge-buying scandal.
Thanks for the ping & website. I’ve forwarded it to my friends & relatives still in MS.
Thanks for the blog link!
I hope yall enjoy the site. I learned about them thru Supertalk MS radio some time ago. They do a good job of dragging a lot of headlines into one place for us folks who can’t take the time to find them all. Since all the mess with Scruggs has blown up, they have done yeoman work keeping the story up front.
Something wrong with your search engine?
Nope, when I googled him, I got his bios and other stuff, but it was really hard to get his party affiliation, it wasn't even in his wikipedia entry.
I teach at DeLaughter’s former high school.
Bobby's politically conservative. And I hate that he's caught up in this.
