Governor Rick Perry is but the latest Republican to fall victim to a Texas Chain- Gang massacre, also known as Democrat Party corruption of the legal system in the Lone Star state.
“A grand jury has indicted Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry on two felony counts of abuse of power for making good on a veto threat — a case the possible 2016 presidential hopeful is dismissing as nakedly political, but which his opponents say is just deserts.
The indictments for abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant came late Friday, after a special prosecutor spent months calling witnesses and presenting evidence that Perry broke the law when he carried out a promise to nix $7.5 million over two years for the public integrity unit run by the office of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg. The Democratic official was convicted of drunken driving, but refused Perry’s repeated calls to resign.”
Although the charges are serious will & surely hinder Perry’s presidential bid in 2016, the repugnant, unseemly reputation of Democrats in Texas should see Perry through this outrageous abuse of the law.
Perry’s defense can be based on two simple words which tell the story of another wretched abuse by Texas Democrats.
The words: Tom Delay!
