Re: Sharing

I don`t even understand what it is that Rick Perry supposedly has done, so I doubt the Low Information Voters have a clue either, but they vote Democrat anyway.  The Republicans are a clean party, so they will throw Perry in the volcano.   I bet you dig deep enough, this all has to do with Perry finally pulling his head out of his ass and getting tough on the Mexicans.   ...meanwhile back at the ranch corrupt ol` snake Harry Reid is running around scott free. 

 

Here`s the history of the term "indict a ham sandwich" that is what`s really going on here, folks.

Here's what it's about. Perry wanted her to resign but she refused so he vetoed her budget.

Like Manna from heavan, ask and ye shall recieve Smiley Happy

 

 

A grand jury indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two counts of Friday, accusing him of abusing his veto power by threatening to withhold funding from the Travis County's public corruption unit if the district attorney did not resign following her drunken driving arrest. The Travis County grand jury, led by special prosecutor Mike McCrum, indicted Perry on one count of abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public servant, a third-degree felony. The punishment range for the first count is 5 to 99 years in prison Smiley Happy  and on the second count, 2 to 10 years in prison,McCrum said. "I'm ready to go forward," McCrum said. Asked about the effect on Perry carrying out his duties or eyeing higher office, McCrum said, "I took into account we're talking about the governor of a state... When it gets down to it, the law is the law." Grand jurors for months have been looking into whether Perry violated the law last year when he said he'd kill funding for the Travis County district attorney's public corruption division unless District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg resigned after a messy drunken-driving arrest. Perry carried through on the veto threat when Lehmberg stayed on the job.

 

Austin watchdog group Texans for Public Justice filed a complaint with prosecutors last year over Perry's threat. The group, which tracks money in politics, contended that with the threat, Perry violated laws against coercion of a public servant, abuse of official capacity, official oppression and, potentially, bribery.

I guess those "Smartification Store" glasses did not work for Perry.

Maybe that is what Perry was so mad about with this picture? Obama told him this was coming?

Re: A ridiculus analogy

Comparing a ham sandwich to an attempt to coerse a public official to resign an office as a prerequisite of signing a bill into law.

 

It's raw political power not unlike Chris Christee's attempt to intimidate public officials in his debacle. First Perry doesn't need to worry too much about votes. He grand design will be to stay out of jail. It has nothing to do with illegal mexicans or intergration. It's about a very powerful governor doing something incredibly stupid. In the first place he indicated that his vote was for sale. Do this and get that. Don't do this and you get nothing.

Proves the best the dems have to offer is a blithering drunk. The legislature could override the veto if they think the drunk should be funded.

Re: A ridiculus analogy

You're not really that dense are you? The discussion is not about whether he vetoed the bill or not. It was the coersion that was illegal. You cannot bribe a public official. The quid quo pro being, you resign and I will fund your department. If he had kept his mouth shut and vetoed the bill there would have been no criminal act.
