Rick Perry indicted
for Lehmberg veto threat

A Travis County grand jury today indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest. Grand jurors charged Perry, 63, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official. The indictments stemmed from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.2 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget. The money was earmarked for the state’s Public Integrity Unit, which is housed in Lehmberg’s office. Perry’s veto forced

I would much rather see a headline saying "Obama indicted for multiple criminal charges." I utterly despise the evil, evil Democrats. If only they were as concerned about the abuse of power from their dear leader Obama.

In spite of being charged with "abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official," it appears to me Perry exercised the veto rights that are vested in the governor.

The only abuse and political retribution I see is that by Lehmberg supporters. Lehmberg was caught driving drunk, pled guilty and received a sentence of jail time. Quite the credentials for a District Attorney.

Once again, Texas Democrats are up to their dirty tricks. No wonder Texas voters do not support them.

Fellow Texans, this is why Bob Strauss has to go! As Speaker of the House, he sides with too many Democrats and refuses to allow a bill that remove authority from the Travis County DA to enforce public integrity laws to come up for a vote in the Texas Legislature. State Law gives only the Travis County DA the jurisdiction over laws involving Texas Ethics. The law MUST be changed so that national dems cannot use the drunken ugly hags and fools like Ronnie Earl and Rosemary Lehmberg to indict Texas conservative leaders that seek to influence national policies.

Pay attention to the local stuff, fellow Texans. Bob Strauss must NO LONGER be Speaker of the House! There is a conservative seeking this position. Support Turner.

If the special prosecutor had an ounce of integrity, he would be investigating Rosemary Lehmberg for misuse of her authority and for public corruption. How can a drunken idiot uphold the law?? Rick Perry was RIGHT and was acting within his authority to do what was necessary to keep this ugly hag from using any money from the State of Texas. She must have gotten all the grand jurors from the local lesbian hangout or the Democrat HQ.

It seems the special prosecutor, Mr Michael McCrum has some legal issues of his own cropping up.

From the san Antonio fishswrap: SAN ANTONIO — High-profile San Antonio defense attorney Mike McCrum could potentially face up to six months in jail if a visiting judge agrees with prosecutors that he unethically steered a witness away from testifying during an October trial.

McCrum, a former federal prosecutor, is scheduled to appear before visiting Judge Dick Alcala on Jan. 17 for a contempt hearing related to his alleged conduct during the intoxication manslaughter trial of client Taylor Rae Rosenbusch.

Melanie Little, a counselor and case manager at Starlite Recovery Center where Rosenbusch sought counseling after the fatal crash, was told by McCrum that the “DA was out for blood” and to “get lost for awhile” when prosecutors tried to call her back to the witness stand, the motion alleges.

Let´s see, a rogue grand jury is a very liberal district indicts a sitting Republican governor who is popular across (most of) the rest of the state. Democrats then call for him to resign because of his "unbecoming conduct."

Odd, they never mention the DA´s drunkenness and abusive behavior toward the cops during her DUI arrest. Is that kind of illegal misbehavior not "unbecoming" the highest-ranking law enforcement official in the state? What do Texas Democrats say about that? They change the subject, of course.

The Democratic Party in Texas has always been an embarrassment - and long before the days of Landslide Lyndon - and it continues to behave like, well, drunken swine. If they want to derail Rick Perry, this is an awfully pathetic attempt: The video of the DA at her arrest tells no lies.

Again, the abuse of Travis County law enforcement is nothing hew. The most famous incident was the Kay Bailey Hutchison farce. It was also a curious coincidence that just about anyone who was in the way of Ann Richards´ path to power got in the Travis County law enforcement spotlight. We are a Democrat banana republic here.

Who’ll be the next attorney general? Washington’s favorite parlor game is filling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate?

Washington - The Obama Administration announced Tuesday that it will pick up the bill for immigration attorneys who will be assigned to unaccompanied children from Central America and elsewhere who are stopped at the U.s. border. Dallas and Houston are two of a handful of cities where the money will be spent, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a phone call to The News Tuesday. The program starts today and will be funded with $9 million between now and the end of the next fiscal year. In all, the funds are estimated to be enough to pay for lawyers for more than 2,600 children.

Intelligence officials are said to oppose being more forthcoming about who has been subjected to surveillance, especially in cases involving noncitizens abroad — who do not have Fourth Amendment privacy rights — because such information would tip them off that the National Security Agency had intercepted their communications.

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here. An unnamed patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was placed in isolation while awaiting test results for the dreaded virus. Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

President Barack Obama´s intelligence briefings have provided him with specific information since before he won re-election in 2012 about the growing threat of the terror group now known alternatively as ISIS and ISIL, an administration insider told MailOnline on Monday. ´Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president´s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,´(snip) ´Any time you´re hired by a boss to advise him about what to do in a high-stakes area, and he ignores you for

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It

Leading astrologers say that Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky is destined for a future working on social justice and will enjoy a strong relationship with her proud grandparents, Hillary and Bill. After Chelsea Clinton and Mark Mezvinsky’s daughter was born at 7:03 pm at Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side on Friday, POLITICO asked astrologers to weigh in on what is written in the stars for the former first daughter’s first daughter. “She may not follow her family’s politics, but she will follow the family’s activism and social justice and finding a way to serve the world, following in that
