    Do you think the Dems will turn to voter supression and shady gerrymandering practices?

    Ha! The democrats want to flood the districts with illegals then give them the vote!

    As far as gerrymandering....I figure they already have that down pretty good.

    INTEGRITY ......NOT! She should have resigned



    Actually this thread is about Governor Perry, he's the person who has been indicted and is facing serious jail time, if tried and convicted.

    Let's all remember that Perry is innocent until proven guilty, after which his ass will be in jail.

    Looking forward to seeing the 'perp walk' photos.

    If that was his intention why did wait this long to do it ?

    This was over a specific legislator who was caught driving under the influence.

    Perry has the authority to Veto AND announcing his intentions to veto.

    Only Democrat Governors shut down State funded investigative groups.

    Like Andrew Cuomo for example.

    Notice the Libs have kept that to them selves for some reason.
    DA's aren't legislators.

    Perry is going to cut funding for the courts next. Then the prisons.

    No, the Goal post were moved long before I posted in this thread.

    Perry's legal authority to Veto spending suddenly morphed into a grand conspiracy to shut down Political investigations.

    Its a BS, and its the best the Liberals can do.

    Perry's popular in Texas, and through his leadership our economy has grown and so has our surplus.

    This is only going to piss off and motivate the majority of Conservative voters in a already Red State.

    Re: Gov. Rick Perry indicted for abuse of power for carrying out threat to veto prose

    From the article.
    Mary Anne Wiley, Perry's general counsel, predicted Perry ultimately will be cleared of the charges against him - abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant.

    "The veto in question was made in accordance with the veto authority afforded to every governor under the Texas Constitution," she said.

    David L. Botsford, Perry's defense attorney, whose $450-per hour fees are being paid for by state funds, said he was outraged by the action.

    "This clearly represents political abuse of the court system and there is no legal basis in this decision," Botsford said in a statement. "Today's action, which violates the separation of powers outlined in the Texas Constitution, is nothing more than an effort to weaken the constitutional authority granted to the office of Texas governor, and sets a dangerous precedent by allowing a grand jury to punish the exercise of a lawful and constitutional authority afforded to the Texas governor."

    Prisons are an extremely important economic industry in these red states--that's why they're going private.
    And of course the USA's economy depends on the chemical dependence of its citizens on Alcohol, ciggies and Pharms .
