    Really? there doesn't have to be a reason, only in your mind for a veto. There is nothing in the law that states that the Gov. doesn't have the right to veto a bill. The Legislature can always override that veto. You are reaching because of your dislike for Perry and probably most Republicans.

    Vetoing legislation is the right of any Governor. Doesn't matter the reason nor does it prevent the Legislature from overriding that veto. your double standard continues to show. What exactly did the Republicans do to you or your family that creates such hatred, lack of logic, and basic lack of understanding of civics?

    This will be yet another case where the facts dont matter, only the seriousness of the accusation.

    One more time: It's not the veto that got him indicted. It's the reason for the veto that created his problem.

    Do you know what got Al Capone locked up in prison?

    Tax evasion.

    Does any governor need any particular reason to veto a bill?

    There doesn't have to be a reason, that is something you don't seem to understand although Perry had one.
