Rick Perry might as well wear an oil industry shirt to work every day. He's their guy.
That said, what's it really matter?
-Rick Perry nationally is seen as an idiot.
-Rick Perry in Texas itself is seen as an idiot by every liberal, independent and everything in between.
-Rick Perry is a business conservative. In other words, he's a fake. He's a walking contradiction who quotes Ayn Rand on one hand (an atheist) and on the other hand preaches anti gay biblical statements. The man is an ideological nothing.
He gives con men a bad name for his sloppiness. If you're going to lie, at least make your lies not ideologically contradict one another.
Nonjusticiable political question, get used to that phrase, because that's how this is resolving.
"Sec. 39.02. ABUSE OF OFFICIAL CAPACITY. (a) A public servant commits an offense if, with intent to obtain a benefit or with intent to harm or defraud another, he intentionally or knowingly:
(1) violates a law relating to the public servant's office or employment; or
(2) misuses government property, services, personnel, or any other thing of value belonging to the government that has come into the public servant's custody or possession by virtue of the public servant's office or employment.
Once the grand jury ruled in her case, it was then "hands off". (2) is what applies here. Because the value is greater than 200K, it is a first degree felony.

Actually I think Rick Perry basically describes the modern day insurrection within the GOP. Quoting Ayn Rand, a Russian Atheistic Capitalist and on the other hand using biblical attacks against everything from computer nerds to anything and everything.
I don't think they could be more contradictory and ideologically conflicted to their core if they tried.
If she wasn't obligated to resign because of her DUI, then wouldn't Perry not funding her office essentially be him firing her?
