Rick Perry

Democrats Prosecutorial abuses

As I predicted Texas Governor Rick Perry's attorney's have filed to have the case dismissed outright with prejudice. Go to the link to read the writ.

I must say this is one of the best writs I've seen in a while. It details why using the courts for political reasons is a bad idea and the freedoms it attacks on us and our political system.

TX Gov Rick Perry Indicted On 2 Felony Corruption Charges

"A Travis County grand jury Friday indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest.

Grand jurors charged Perry, 64, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public servant, a third-degree felony. The first charge carries a punishment of 5-99 years and a fine of up to $10,000. The second charge is punishable by 2-10 years and a fine of up to $10,000.

The indictment stems from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.5 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget."
