    Thanks for the info. No wonder Perry took the position he did. So in retaliation, they decided to accuse him of abuse of power, completely ignoring what she did? It figures! :

    Greetings, nota bene.

    Again the question isn't does the governor have the right to veto, it was the resignation part that got him into trouble. Why didn't Perry just veto the monies... why all the resignation drama?

    Perry gave her the chance to resign and when she didn't he did veto the money

    It doesn't take much to be smarter than the clown in the WH right now, but again I forgot Progressives react to appearance whereas actual results don't matter. What other reason could there be to only think with their heart rather than their brain?

    The position of using his power as an elected official to try to force another elected official to resign?

    How is that position not an abuse of authority?
