I may be wrong.
Had she resigned, Rick Perry would have appointed her replacement. So you'd have a corruption investigation tied against Perry's administration being taken over by one of his direct appointees.
Either way Rick Perry was able to successfully hinder the corruption investigation. When the funding for the Public Integrity Unit was vetoed by Perry, Travis County stepped in and provided half of the original funding coming from the state.

I know for an absolute fact that Rick Perry is a completely honest guy, only concerned about the taxpaying public, and couldn't possibly carry a grudge against the woman or an organization leading up an investigation intimately involving Rick Perry's administration.
It'd totally be against Rick Perry's nature to be into that type of political payback.
