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

THr ELITES a ARE USING HER TO GET RID OF PERRY BEFORE 2016. THEY WANT JEB BUSH VERY BADLY FOR PRESIDENT . THEY ARE STARTING THEIR NASTY POLITICS ALREADY . PERRY ISNT GUILTY OF ANYTHING , BUT HIS REPUTATION IS BEING SOILED .

WERE CUFFS AND ALL NECESSARY . WHEN BLOOD TEST COME BACK YOU WILL KNOW . PERRY IS IN A SITUATION OF DARN IF HE DOES AND DARN IF HE DOESN'T!! YES DEM WANT BUSH .  WE NEED TO WATCH ALL AND SPEAK UP {  NO !!!! } .TO BUSH .

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.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
