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

    It probably just got real for Perry:

    (Reuters) - Texas Governor Rick Perry, a possible Republican presidential candidate in the 2016 race, was fingerprinted and had his mug shot taken by judicial authorities on Tuesday after being indicted last week on two felony charges of abusing power.

    "[...] This indictment is fundamentally a political act that seeks to achieve at the courthouse what could not be achieved at the ballot box," Perry said after finishing the 15-minute processing at the Travis County criminal justice center, a short walk away from the governor's mansion.
    ROFLMAO... Perry himself tried to achieve at the governor's office (via veto) what could not be achieved at the ballot box (Lehmberg's removal). This guy is as clueless as they come.

    Rather interesting that you care so much about Perry whereas the people of TX care more about the booming economy and jobs created here. Obama should be thanking TX for all the job created and the wages in all wage levels

    https://www.dallasfed.org/assets/doc...4/swe1401d.pdf

    Texas experienced stronger job
    growth than the rest of the nation in all
    four wage quartiles from 2000 to 2013,
    even in the middle two wage quartiles,
    where growth in the rest of the nation
    was negative and zero, respectively
    (Chart 1).6
    In Texas, the two upper wage
    quartiles grew at 28 and 36 percent,

    Intent to harm is not harm.

    Look, you seem to be having a really hard time with this.
    Don't feel bad, you're not alone.

    Let me demonstrate how it's done. I'll do Count I. You read that and try your hand at count II.

    The indictment of Perry won't stand because...

    As to Count I
    On or about June 14, 2013, in the County of Travis, Texas, James Richard "Rick" Perry, with intent to harm another, to-wit, Rosemary Lehmberg and the Public Integrity Unit of the Travis County District Attorney's Office, intentionally or knowingly misused government property by dealing with such property contrary to an agreement under which defendant held such property or contrary to the oath of office he took as a public servant, such government property being monies having a value of in excess of $200,000 which were approved and authorized by the Legislature of the State of Texas to fund the continued operation of the Public Integrity Unit of the Travis County District Attorney's Office, and which had come into defendant's custody or possession by virtue of the defendant's office as a public servant, namely, Governor of the State of Texas.

    http://dig.abclocal.go.com/ktrk/PICS...indictment.pdf

    Perry did not perform acts which comport to the specifics contained in the law.
    To wit

    Before the governor signs legislation, it is not a law.
    Any legislation which provided monies for the continued operation of the Public Integrity Unit is not a law until it is signed off on by the governor.
    This legislation was never signed by the governor.
    Therefore the legislation never became law.
    Funding, monies, contained in bills are not real. Funding does not come into being until the legislation becomes a law.
    This legislation never became a law.
    Therefore the monies never actually existed.
    It is impossible to misuse property which does not exist.
    Therefore, not only is there reasonable doubt that Perry is guilty of this charge, it is literally impossible for him to be guilty of this charge.

    See?

    Give it go with Count II.

    Pointing out your dishonesty isn't trolling.

    Then stop making dumbass statements, you claimed that the facts are in the indictment when the reality is the charges are in the indictment. Perry is going to win this one and even prominent democrats are running from it.

    In a nicer way I have trying to encourage you to follow that advice your own self.

    I still don't recall saying that.

    I take it you're not up to the challenge of constructing an argument as to why Count II won't fly?
    I may be wrong.

    I wonder how many times democrats in TX have to try and criminalize opposing political ideology and lose embarrassingly before they realize it is a losing strategy?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Well, Ronnie Earle destroyed Tom Delay's career and reputation. The man spent three years in prison before being acquitted. I think Travis County Dems might call this a "win." And if this partisan ploy succeeds and derails Rick Perry's ambitions (when, really, he's capable of doing this all by himself), they'll also call this a "win" too.

    What would be funny is if this backfires.
