Political Payback: Perry Falsely Indicted

Another play out of the Democrats playbook: Use the court system to beat up your political enemies.
From Fox News: Texas Gov. Rick Perry was indicted Friday for allegedly abusing his veto power during a dispute with a public corruption prosecutor over her drunken driving arrest -- in a case that could mar the potential 2016 presidential candidate’s political prospects....
The indictment came down late Friday, after a special prosecutor spent months calling witnesses and presenting evidence that Perry broke the law when he threatened to veto $7.5 million over two years for the public integrity unit, which is run by Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg's office. 
The governor wanted Lehmberg, a Democrat, to resign after she was arrested and pleaded guilty to drunken driving in April 2013. When she refused, Perry vetoed the money.
Mary Anne Wiley, general counsel for Perry, said in a statement Friday evening that the governor's actions were allowed under the law.
“The veto in question was made in accordance with the veto authority afforded to every governor under the Texas Constitution," she said. "We will continue to aggressively defend the governor's lawful and constitutional action, and believe we will ultimately prevail.”
Perry's defense attorney David L. Botsford, whose $450-per hour fees are being paid for by state funds, said he was "outraged and appalled" at the decision.
"This clearly represents political abuse of the court system and there is no legal basis in this decision," he said.
Austin, Texas is a liberal hell hole in Texas, where most liberals in Texas hang out, so it is no surprise that they were able to get a bunch of brain dead liberals to indict Perry.
More shame on liberals and Democrats.
