“A special prosecutor spent months calling witnesses and presenting evidence that Perry broke the law when he promised publicly to nix $7.5 million over two years for the public integrity unit run by the office of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg. Lehmberg, a Democrat, was convicted of drunken driving, but refused Perry's calls to resign.”
Though the Republican governor now faces two felony indictments, politics dominates the case. Lehmberg is based in Austin, which is heavily Democratic, in contrast to most of the rest of fiercely conservative Texas. The grand jury was comprised of Austin-area residents.

Remind you of anything?
The Democrats had to go to 3 Grand Juries to indict Delay; think they had to go to that many to indict Gov Perry? As the old saying goes, you can get a Grand Jury to indict a ham sandwich. Getting a conviction is another story. Travis County has a history of indicting Republican politicians: Senators Kay Hutchison and Tom DeLay and now Governor Perry. They've only gotten one conviction (delay) and that was thrown out by a Texas court.

And then there's THIS

(Speaking of Grand Juries)
In both cases, the Democrats were/are in fact debauching a national election process.  DeLay because he was the House "GUTS," and Perry because he has presidential aspirations, and has gone head to head with Obama and Holder.

Sounds like another Texas state prosecutor in need of defunding has just self-identified.

I think the next governor will be a Republican. Maybe he'll be defunding that office for good.

Perry just did what the FedGov does regularly when they want to control something outside their legal boundaries. Just threaten to cut funding if the seatbelt use does not increase, cut funding if the legal age for alcohol purchase is not raised. Same thing except on a national scale.
The most transparent administration ever. Yup. You can watch them reach into your pocket and take your money. You can watch them hand money to their cronies and supporters. You can watch them turn GM over to the union. Transparent, yes. Honest, no.

Rodge, I know that Seattle is high on the target list for a Barn Army carpet bombing, but I would respectfully suggest that flattening Austin would be of greater long-term benefit to both Texas and the country as a whole.

Austin, or "LA South" as it is known in the Hill Country.
When someone says "ain't nothin' but steers 'n queers in Texas" it's Austin they're thinking of.

Perry should file a motion for a change of venue (to a safe, God-fearing county) and a motion for a speedy trial.

That will get this stunt over and done with in a hurry, which could back-fire tremendously.

This drunk female prosecutor gave me a regrettable Ann Richards flashback.
