A grand jury indicted Governor Rick Perry Friday for his attempts to remove Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg from office after she was arrested for driving while intoxicated last year in a case that made national headlines.

In April 2013, Lehmberg was arrested after a witness called 911, describing her as driving erratically, swerving back and forth into the bike lane, and into oncoming traffic. Officers at the scene reportedly found an open bottle of vodka in her car, and a blood sample obtained later that evening purportedly showed a blood alcohol level of 0.239—almost three times the legal limit—even that many hours later.

Not only did her arrest attracted headlines, but her belligerent behavior after she was brought to the police station—all captured on video tape—drew attention, as well. Lehmberg is seen blaming the police for destroying her political career, yelling and insulting them; demanding that they call Travis County Sheriff Greg Hamilton; sticking out her tongue; making faces; kicking at the door to her cell; and eventually getting restrained with leg irons, being strapped to a chair and wearing what is commonly referred to as a “spit mask,” which is usually used when a detainee is spitting or biting. To be fair, the video does not expressly show that happening, and Lehmberg’s defense attorney later claimed that the mask was used to “protect her identity.”

She has the same credibility as obozo - NONE.  Disbarment for abuse of power is in order.

Well, considering Ted Kennedy spent most of career in constantly gin soaked state, this lady is a light weight! Yes, how dare Rick Perry try to remove an unfit, alcoholic from public office? Who does he think he is? The GOVERNOR of the state or something? Oh, wait ...

Typical democrat blame someone else for their behavior. She was ridiculous with her behavior so let's ruin Rick Perry's reputation and career. I hope the people of Texas stand up for him. Evidently he is liked to have been Governor for so long. The dems are afraid he may become more popular because of his taking control of his state when the government won't. Maybe it will cause the people to turn on them. This is what should be happening to most in D. C. and they know it. Criminals. 

Perry has done some bad things but firing this drunk isn't one of them.

I AGRE AND TELL HE TO CLIMB BACK INTO HE BOTTLE

Declare war on all demonRATS.

AND RINOs!

You get rid of RINOs & you are left with extreemists on both sides....You & I will end up with , God forbid , Elizabeth Warren , a super liberal as President. I know how liberal she bacause she is my so called jr. senator. Senator Paul said he could work with RINOS because even though are "squishy Rep.'s" they are still Republicans. Get enough Republicans we can "fire" Harry Reid....Think about it!

Hey, not to worry! Perry did us all (Americans) a favor. Democrats are going to do what they always do. Stand up for the blame America/ans first...and protect the anti-Americans for all their miscreant behavior. Been getting away with it since LBJ. I say, let em go.....then....and only then....we will end up in the streets and take care of bidness, for AMERICA.....done it before, will do it again....and be done with it. They are obviously wrong...only "americans" that don't understand this ... are them, Leftist, Liberal, Marxist....Jihadist....anti-American Democrats. 

The headlines really didn't make any sense. This blog clarifies a lot of the background information. From what I have garnered, Gov. Perry is within his rights to demand sobriety from elected officials.

ALERT ALERT

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
