Delay asks Justice Scalia to remove him from ballot.

“The Texas Republican party asked the Supreme Court on Monday to block an appeals court ruling that says the name of indicted former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay must appear on the November ballot…The case was routed to Justice Antonin Scalia, who handles appeals from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.”

UPDATE: Scalia denies DeLay’s appeal. That was fast.
