Rick Perry Cleared

"If you're trying to change minds and influence people it's probably not a good idea to say that virtually all elected Democrats are liars, but what the hell." TRKOF

After costing him time, money, effort and possibly tarnishing his presidential bid, former Texas Governor Rick Perry on Wednesday was finally cleared of charges that he abused his office when he threatened a veto and then issued it in 2013. His real crime? “Governing While Republican.”
Some liberals are no doubt disappointed to hear that a Texas appellate court today, on a 2-1 vote, reversed the conviction of former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. They shouldn’t be. There were good reasons to think that DeLay’s prosecution in Texas for violations of state campaign finance law, like the federal prosecutions of former presidential candidate John Edwards and former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, involved politically motivated charges brought by overzealous prosecutors. Today’s ruling is a window into the world of corporate access to elected officials, for sure. But it confirms that the big problem is not what’s illegal, but what’s legal. [Liberal California law professor Rick Hasen]

To a Democrat-influenced grand jury, Perry’s actions of, well, governing, meant he coerced a public servant and abused his office, and they issued an indictment. But Judge P.J. Keller, who wrote the court’s majority opinion dismissing the case, disagreed. “No law passed by the Legislature can constitutionally make the mere act of vetoing legislation a crime,” Keller wrote, and the court system cannot “examine the motives behind the veto or second-guess the validity of a veto.” Nevertheless, the frivolous prosecution did serve the Left’s goal: to stall a strong conservative’s political career. How much more support could the cowboy-boot wearing governor have generated if donors and voters weren’t wary that the indictment would stick?

Texas  Rick Perry
Travis County (Austin) Democrats are among the most blatantly corrupt people on God's earth. Drunk driver District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg used a malleable Democrat-influenced grand jury to effectively knock Perry out of his presidential bid, just as former prosecutor Ronnie Earle (now in Hell), "an unabashed partisan zealot," indicted DeLay (it took 3 grand Juries!) forcing him step down as House Whip.  In fact, Dem prosecutors in Austin have tried to indict (and failed)  virtually every elected GOP Senator.  My caveman solution: put another Charles Whitman in the Texas Tower with instructions to clean up Dodge. It's the Texas way.

I think Rosemary Lehmberg posed as Candy Crowley in the Uhbama-Romney debate. She is also under investigation for using campaign funds to pay her DWI legal bills.
We have another Hillary-in-training.
