"More troubling, however, is the fact that Chalmers attended, photographed, and commented on an event with Democratic state Sen. Kirk Watson while grand jury proceedings were ongoing.
Watson was a witness in front of the grand jury. On June 27, 2014, Chalmers shared a photo of the Watson event on a community Facebook page she started called Developer’s Dungeon. “Senator Kirk Watson telling the story of the Wendy Davis fillibuster (sic),” she wrote in a comment accompanying the picture. …
Numerous posts from both of Chalmers’ Facebook pages — her personal page, which she shares with her husband, Davis [David, apparently, from the screen caps -- Ed], and her “Developer’s Dungeon” page — make clear that she is a partisan Democratic activist, and that she was an active participant in the Texas Democratic Party’s state convention in June while grand jury proceedings were ongoing.

1)If you actually read what is written, you will notice that there is not even one single allegation of wrongdoing.
No one is even saying that something untoward happened.
2)After that, we could also add the moot point that there's zero evidence presented that something inappropriate happened [ to support the allegation which has not been made ].
3)There is evidence that Chalmers took emotion out of it and looked at the facts.
The article cited in your article, the one from the Houston Chronicle, quotes Chalmers, "several" other members of the GJ saying that they made a good faith effort to be impartial about the thing.
That is not very much evidence, their sayso I suppose.
However, it stacks up against zero evidence to the contrary.
More than zero is more than zero no matter how infinitesimal it is
So, be as "concerned" as you like, or w/e tf you'd like to call it, but as of yet, there's nothing and no one actually saying that there's been any impropriety.

I may be wrong.
IMHO, this is the liberal left trying to "criminalize" anything opposing liberalism.

Again, Sikma does not accuse Chalmers of wrongdoing.
There are no allegations of wrongdoing--if there are, please share them
There is no evidence of wrongdoing--if there is, please share
I am pointing out that no one has accused her of wrongdoing.
What wrongdoing did Chalmers do?
Who is accusing her of what wrongdoing?
What evidence has been presented?

At least the outcome of the fiasco is that Perry's political career is over. Personally, I would rather this not having occurred. I looked forward to seeing Perry make a fool of himself again running for president.
Fooling a lot of people is something the conservatives have majored in for decades. Turn about is fair play.
