Ruh-Roh for Ronnie Earle

Seems that Texas prosecutor Ronnie Earle might have to explain his actions in getting a grand jury to indict Tom Delay in a court of law.

::::::::The legal battle between Rep. Tom DeLay and a Texas district attorney continued on Tuesday as DeLay's attorneys subpoenaed the prosecutor to try to show that he acted improperly with grand jurors.

The filings made in Austin late in the day accuse Texas District Attorney Ronnie Earle of misconduct and call for him and two of his assistants to appear in court to explain their conduct.

Mr. Earle might not appreciate having his actions put under a microscope. And, with the nation watching, it's a very large microscope, indeed.
