    This goes against precedent, we dont hold politicians responsible for anything.

    I just depends on what part of Texas you're in. In this part of the state, democrats often don't even bother to run, but this state is rife with sleazy dems in some areas, and has been since at least the 60's. (think LBJ )

    I saw that. Strikes me as kind of a weird decision since she apparently heads the "Public Integrity" unit. I mean, maybe it's just me, but if you get wasted and get busted then cuss out the cops and scream for a favor from the sheriff I....and maybe it's just me....would question your integrity.

    I doubt this will go anywhere. Only Illinois Governors go to jail.

    It might be a little worrisome for Perry that there is precedent for this type of charge. After reading the article I just can't understand how what he did was wrong, it seems all the shenanigans were going on in the "integrity unit" not in Perry's office, he simply used his legal authority to do what is right. Dems shouldn't stand against him on this one, unless they are just hacks that do not care about right and wrong.

    Texas is ground zero for the Democrats. There is a massive movement to get those electoral votes and the means by which they are obtained isn't important.
