    The prosecutor said jail time of up to 99 years fro the first offense. 20 on the second. Lehmberg spent 14 DAYS
    in jail.

    Don't know if anyone mentioned this:


    US Rep. Joaquin Castro (who called for Perry to step down) is twin brother of former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro (new US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development due to be sworn in Monday) who is a possible running mate for Hillary Clinton and they're mom a Chicana political activist who helped establish the Chicano political party La Raza Unida.

    I don't doubt that the supporters of Abortion Barbie, Wendy Davis (Dem for TX governor) are also involved.

    What a wicked web is being woven.

    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?
    Look don't get me wrong, I love the Hill Country and in particular the city of Austin. I love most of TX except for the Rio Grande Valley but most importantly I love the reality that this is a conservative state and one that promotes personal not govt. responsibility. It is a state where individuals still can be successful and it is a great state to raise a family.

    Yes, I have seen what the Republicans have done but traveling around the country I have seen what liberalism has done to some very great areas as well. I can pick and choose where I live so I control my property taxes. I don't believe it is the Federal Taxpayers responsibility to fund mine or your health care. Healthcare is a personal responsibility and is best handled in the state. This state has dozens of options and of the uninsured more than half qualify for a state program but never sign up.

    I believe local communities should control the education and live in an area that does that. The best move I ever made was to TX in 1992. Unfortunately many Texans and apparently you are one of them don't really realize what you have here. Suggest you travel more, live in other areas of a while and see how "bad" you have it here.

    Houston and Austin are liberal cesspools. The thought of living in either one of those cities makes me cringe.

    Now I wonder why any responsible govt. would want to withhold taxpayer dollars from a department under this kind of leadership? Wonder how many liberals would like to see Lehmberg in control of any of their taxdollars?

    Seems to be pretty much business as usual in the great State of Texas.

    I live in the Houston area, my community is about 80% Conservative and Houston in the last election was 50-50 in the Presidential election. It does have a Lesbian Mayor who is very conservative on economic issues and I would even consider voting for her but am not eligible because I don't live in the city. Austin is close to being a Californian city and one that has a lot of Californians who fled their state but now want to change it into a California socialist republic which is called the "Land of Fruits and Nuts"

    Many Houstonites voted for that idiot Sheila Jackson Lee... she is voted into office time and time again despite being the atrocious representative that she is. I couldn't stomach living in her district if I tried.

    I am sorry that I lumped your area as part of a 'liberal cesspool'.

    The thought of living in any "city" makes me cringe.
