This Person Doesn't Like Soifer

RECEIVED Mon., Dec. 8, 2003

Jan Soifer was Rick Perry's lawyer for redistricting in 2001, and now she wants to run as a Democrat for district judge ["A 'Real Pesonal' Court Race," News, Dec. 5]? I am offended that she thinks she can pull a fast one on Democrats. She works for a Republican law firm. She worked with Republican superlawyer Andy Taylor. She was Rick Perry and John Cornyn's lawyer for redistricting. And now she wants good Democrats to vote for her?
   If she had half the common sense as she has gall, maybe she'd be worth voting for.
