    If Judge Dupuy is correct, then he will have to be impeached rather than Quo warrantoed out of office. If Texas has a fourth special session for the purpose of presenting and trying an Impeachment against a GOP Judge, It does not bode good for the charmed life of the Texas GOP's statewide candidates. Dupuy is crazy like a fox.
