During oral arguments Monday, a Fifth Circuit panel suggested that DeLay's eligibility turns on whether there is "conclusive" evidence that he has moved to Virginia following his indictment on money-laundering charges and resignation from Congress [JURIST reports]. Two of the judges said Delay could move back to Texas before the election. Delay is now licensed to drive and registered to vote in Virginia and has said he plans to reside there indefinitely, although his wife continues to live in their home outside Houston. AP has more. The Houston Chronicle has local coverage.
