I'm not saying that Lehmberg is a great person, and I remember when she got arrested. Her blatancy in demanding a sheriff give her special treatment as she pounded on the jail door was practically unbearable to watch, and there are many democratic representatives here in Austin that I disagree with in their actions, but that doesn't change the fact that Perry abused his power as Governor.
FYI: Did you know that Rick Perry was at one point a Democrat?
John Chait of New York magazine, who is pretty left but also pretty sharp, gives us a good rundown of exactly why this indictment is complete BS:
Rick Perry Indictment Is Unbelievably Ridiculous -- NYMag
This is scummy Texas Democrats going after a scummy Texas Republican. Pretty much naked political gamesmanship.
Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
Given your predisposition to the liberal ideology I wouldn't expect you to understand the concept or the advantage of luring new investment with tax breaks.
Texas lured Toyota out of that Blue plague State California with 40 Million in relocation assistance so Toyota could come here and spend 300 Million setting up their new head quarters. For that 40 Million Texas also gets 3000 Professional High paying jobs that move into the Dallas area.
Are you getting it yet ?
Since 2011 more than two dozen California companies including Titan Laboratories, Xeris Pharmaceuticals, Superconductor Technologies, SCON +1.04% Pacific Union Financial and Med-Logics have relocated in Texas from Jerry Brown's disaster of a State, and for Texas that equates to increased revenue which will no doubt be added to our existing 10 Billion dollar Surplus.
So as California struggles with their growing fiscal nightmare, and their huge population of people totally dependent on the Government, Texas is going to continue doing what works.

TX has no state income taxes, has a low cost of living, is at the top in job creation, has 52 Fortune 500 companies and that simply drives you crazy. All those people and businesses moving to TX so they can make low wages, have no insurance, and living in poverty. That is liberal logic
Saying the same lies over and over again don't make those lies true. TX does not lead the nation in the number of people making minimum wage, they have the most in the nation, 500,000 out of a 13 million labor force making the FEDERAL MINIMUM Wage, California has the most people making a minimum wage, three times the number in TX. Suggest you learn how to do research. California minimum wage up to July 1 was $8 an hour. How was it living in California living on $8 an hour?

You think it is because of Rick Perry that our state does so well? While you proclaim that low taxes are your answer, have you seen what Texas Republicans have done to property taxes? Oh, and have you been to the local DPS office lately? How's that working out for you? How did you like it when Rick Perry refused federal funding for healthcare, in a state that ranks at the bottom for people covered by healthcare? How do you like the changes in education books that Texas Republicans put forth under Rick Perry's direction to further stupefy our state as a whole, and with it many other states?
