Texas politics: Fred Baron's $1.7M

Asbestos-suit impresario Fred Baron has dropped $1.7 million into Texas Democratic coffers over the past two years. Among the results: the stunning Democratic takeover of the Dallas judiciary in last month's election, with all 42 incumbent Republicans in contested races losing their seats. The Austin American-Statesman has a profile which is almost entirely incurious about Baron's history as a poster boy for legal ethics in the asbestos-suit area. Texas Shark Watch has more as well.
