Chris Christie also had no humility, these big shot talking bigoted (not Christie), GOP talking heads, who are welcomed onto Fox Nuts Channel to tell everyone what they’d do as President of the United States, but all keep losing for good reason will continue to be the Republican Party’s downfall. Sadly we need two parties in America, but the GOP is proving it’s definitely not a sane party anymore, and pandering to racists and bigots has become its biggest attraction.  Now Rick Perry, who put on glasses to try to look more intellectual, “oops!” Didn’t work, is the latest GOP star to face abuse of power charges.   Rick Perry of Texas was indicted on two felony counts on Friday by a state grand jury examining his handling of a local district attorney’s drunken driving arrest and the state financing for a public corruption unit under the lawyer’s control.

 

The indictment was returned late Friday in Austin.   The investigation centered on Mr. Perry’s veto power as governor. His critics asserted that he used that power as leverage to try to get an elected official and influential Democrat — Rosemary Lehmberg, the district attorney in Travis County — to step down after her arrest for drunken driving last year. Ms. Lehmberg is Austin’s top prosecutor and oversees a powerful public corruption unit that investigates state, local and federal officials; its work led to the 2005 indictment of a former Republican congressman, Tom DeLay on charges of violating campaign finance laws.

Following Ms. Lehmberg’s arrest, Mr. Perry and his aides threatened to veto $7.5 million in state dollars for the public corruption unit in her office unless she resigned. The governor followed through on his threat, vetoing the money by stating that he could not support “continued state funding for an office with statewide jurisdiction at a time when the person charged with ultimate responsibility of that unit has lost the public’s confidence.”

The criminal case against Mr. Perry began when a nonprofit government watchdog group, Texans for Public Justice, filed a complaint last June accusing the governor of misdemeanor and felony offenses over his veto threat, including coercion of a public servant. A judge appointed a special prosecutor – Michael McCrum, a San Antonio lawyer and a former federal prosecutor – and the grand jury began hearing the case in April.

A number of Mr. Perry’s aides have testified in recent weeks before the grand jury, including Ken Armbrister, the governor’s legislative liaison. A previous grand jury was sworn in last year to determine whether Ms. Lehmberg should be removed for official misconduct. Its term expired, however, and it appeared to not consider the issues surrounding Mr. Perry’s threat and veto.

For Mr. Perry, the longest-serving governor in Texas history, the criminal investigation had the potential to mar his legacy as his tenure neared an end. Along with his blustery image as a tough-talking, pistol-packing Texan, Mr. Perry has made it a point throughout his nearly 14 years as governor to tout his ethics and Christianity. He summed up his views in a book, published in 2008, about the values he learned as a Boy Scout; it was called “On My Honor.”

By the way, this was no liberal, but a very conservative-based grand jury.  So, no need for conspiracy theories abounding, it is, what it is.

Don’t worry, he can always go retire and rest on his “Nigger Head” Ranch, yes, he actually has a ranch called that, in the South!  Yet, he tried to portray himself as oblivious to the bad verbiage or meaning in his 2012 Presidential campaign.
