    He has the authority to not only Veto spending but to announce that veto.

    We will see, the problem is once a precedence is set then it is free for everyone to use.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Perry will get his day in court, like any other Texan.

    Then, if convicted, he goes to jail.

    Where it looks like he belongs, based on the available evidence.

    That day in court will include motions to dismiss.

    It's up to the judge.

    Yea, the outrage is over Perry's right to Veto, not the fact that this Liberal DA is still in office after a DUI and making a absolute spectacle of herself.

    "This clearly represents political abuse of the court system and there is no legal basis in this decision," Botsford said in a statement. "Today's action, which violates the separation of powers outlined in the Texas Constitution, is nothing more than an effort to weaken the constitutional authority granted to the office of Texas governor, and sets a dangerous precedent by allowing a grand jury to punish the exercise of a lawful and constitutional authority afforded to the Texas governor."

    If the above holds true, dismissal is in order.

    This case is idiosyncratic at least because it involves Texas laws. I don't think that we need to presume that the precedent will apply to other states.
    But Ianal.

    But, istm, the charge is that this is different from standard veto dramas and idiosyncratic in other ways .
    If Perry is convicted it will be because there was something about this case which makes it different from standard issue veto actions.
    At least that's my ignorant opinion.

    If Perry is not convicted, then maybe this veto drama is different than standard veto dramas without being illegal or it could be the same as run of the mill veto dramas.
    Won't be able to tell from that alone.

    But if this affair has some characteristics or attributes which distinguish it from "regular" vetoes, then the applicability of the precedent should be limited by those same distinguishing characteristics. Again, Ianal.
