This is all happening thanks to Tom Delay, who came back to Texas last year and stage-managed the "redistricting" after the lines had already been drawn by state judges. Remember that, when the democrats on the legislature checked out of the state for a few weeks? Yup, that's Tom Delay's handiwork. The districts that were reformed forced two long standing representatives to have to duke it out, because Frost's district was purposely diluted to the point of unelectability. Frost had to shift districts to stay in office, and he's running for that district, held by Sessions.
The Sessions folks don't give a rat's ass about child molestors or anything else. They just want to make as much noise and grief for Frost as possible. This is no doubt a little benefit of being a friend of Dubya and Karl Rove.
