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

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.
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."
"The law is reason, free from passion."
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 .
