AUSTIN, TEXAS: On Friday, a Travis County Texas grand jury indicted anti-gay governor Rick Perry on two felony counts, for abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant. Abuse of official capacity carries a sentence of 5 - 99 years in prison, and coercion of a public servant carries a sentence of 2 - 10 years.
Let me fill you in on why "Prick Perry" was indicted.
The county seat of Travis County is Austin, which is also the state capital. Within the Travis County District Attorney’s office is a division known as the Texas Public Integrity Unit (TPIU). The TPIU is responsible for prosecuting government corruption, insurance fraud, and motor fuels tax fraud, for the entire state.
In 2013, Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg was arrested for drunken driving. She received a fine, and was sentenced to 45 days in jail. The District Attorney did her time and fulfilled the obligations of her sentence.
Governor Perry demanded that the District Attorney resign. If she didn’t resign, Perry said that he would veto the funding that provides $7.5 million to run the TPIU.
Rosemary Lehmberg, a Democrat, told Rick Perry, a Republican, to go fuck himself because she wasn’t stepping down. Perry stuck to his guns and vetoed the funding and decimated the TPIU.
The special grand jury believes that Perry coerced the Travis County District Attorney, and from the sounds of things, he did just that. His veto of the funds to finance the TPIU is certainly an abuse of power, as he freely admitted that he was out to get the Travis County D.A.
When Perry was on the campaign trail as he was running for President in 2012, reporters noted that he sometimes slurred his words, and appeared to be drunk. Just before his campaign suffered a major meltdown, Perry participated in a debate where he was asked about the federal agencies that he would shut down, if he was elected. As we all know he couldn’t remember any names, and ended up saying “oops.”
Rick Perry will never be the moral arbiter of anyone or anything, with his track record. Just 8 weeks ago the man was in San Francisco telling people that alcoholism and homosexuality are the same.
Rick Perry made an ass of himself in 2012, and he is allegedly gearing up for a 2016 run for the White House.
Good luck with that governor Perry. You’re going to need it.
You look good in orange.
