    Where is the bribe?

    I guess the answer is yes, he can and then be prosecuted for taking the bribe. The Legislature will override the veto if that is the case. Now answer my question, what are you afraid of?

    That is true but you don't see many from Austin moving to the Socialist Republic of California, wonder why?

    So you admit that a Governor can be committing a crime by vetoing a bill.

    Now you know why Perry has been indicted.

    The Left turned that into a hellish place to do business and live. Austin is right on it's tracks... one of the most expensive over-taxed cities in the country.

    It's fixing to move to a single member districts which might cull a lot of the Progressive influence that controls it now. So there's some hope.

    In the scenario you presented the veto isn't the crime. Receiving the bribe is.

    Again, I'm not aware of any bribe.

    Bit of a stretch. There is no bribe involved here for one thing. Second, even if there were he would not be guilty of taking a bribe until he took a bribe. The act of vetoing a bill which results in personal gain or protection from investigation would counter conflict of interest rules more likely. Not sure that is indictable though.

    BTW; I am no fan of Perry

    well, not really amazed... Travis county folks go to absurd lengths to protect Democrats.... the rest of the state goes to absurd lengths to protect Republicans.

    if Perry has his trial in Travis county,he might be facing the fight of his life.... if it's moved out of Travis county, he's got a decent shot at getting past this ordeal.

    in any event, the real "winner" in all this is the drunk bitch who decided to chug a bottle of vodka while driving down the road, endangering lives... after she got done with her cocktails at the bar.
    she gets to keep her job ( trying and convicting drunk drivers, no less) and she gets to watch the political revenge of her antagonist take shape.

    as for Perry, I don't care what happens to him... if he broke the law, he outta pay.. if he didn't, he shouldn't.
