Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle has subpoenaed two officials at the Free Enterprise Fund (http://www.freeenterprisefund.org) in connection with ads the conservative group has run criticizing him for his indictment of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R.-Tex.). The ads attacked Earle, who has a history of indicting his political enemies in both parties, comparing him to an attack dog.
( The TV spot was entitled "Bad Ronnie, Bad" (Attack Dog) that is being run in Austin, and other markets. FEF started airing the TV spot on October 12, 2005. Here's the video if you missed it - Funny. It was previous posted at FR and in "The DeLay Chronicles" - TAB)
The draft subpoena served to the organization demands that Free Enterprise Fund (FEF) Communications Director Todd Schorle and executive director O'Brien Murray testify in Texas at DeLay's change of venue hearing on Dec. 27, 2005 the Tuesday after Christmas.
In the subpoena, Earle also demands "any and all documentation regarding the advertisements that have been produced or paid for by the Free Enterprise Fund, including any and all information regarding media buys by the Free Enterprise Fund for those advertisements that have run in Austin, Texas, and that may affect whether Thomas Dale DeLay may receive a fair trial in Travis County, Texas."
FEF fears that Earle is trying to get its donor list with this document request, a spokesman said. Former U.S. Solicitor General Ted Olson, now an attorney in private practice, will represent FEF in the matter. (Great FEF has Ted Olson to take on Earle the Squirrel - TAB)
FEF will be running its ads against Earle in Houston this weekend on the Sunday talk shows, including "Meet the Press."

LOL! This is getting fun. Ol' Ronnie's trying to strong-arm these folks into shutting up. Prolly won't be too long before the D's lose patience with getting pounded over his antics, and he'll be forced to resign.
Dig your hole deeper ronnie, just keep diggin'
Earle vs Former U.S. Solicitor General Ted Olson...this should be good.
Is there any doubt that if he gets the donor list, he'll subpeona all the donors as well?
I'm stunned that lefties on one side claim to support freedom but on the same token try to squish anyone who disagrees with them.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised though: this is the same bunch that "supports the troops" but tries to stop people in uniform from voting.
Talk about Out of Control...

Earle's subpoena should be squashed, squished, and flushed.
Ronnie Earle has now officially "Jumped the shark!"
Imagine finding this fellows picture on a milk carton.:):)
He's lost whatever marbles he had.
No. Democrats are chronically evil by nature. They love this stuff.
Well--I think ole Ronnie will more than meet his match if Ted Olsen is representing the other side--snicker!
Would you care to venture a guess as to why Earle did this? I mean, DeLay couldnt have asked for a better Christmas gift..
Go get Ronnie Earle! He deserves to be attacked.
They do love this stuff -- but Ronnie's making them look silly, and they hate being laughed at.
I just went and donated some cash to FEF.
Subpoena this Earle!!!
