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

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.

“It’s an exciting evolution.”

CNN’s Anderson Cooper said during an interview with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos that he found the demographic decline of white people “exciting”.

“The idea that, you know, whites will not be the majority, I mean, that’s — it’s an exciting transformation of the country, it’s an exciting evolution and you know, progress of our country in many different ways,” said Cooper.

Ramos agreed that whites becoming a minority in America was inevitable and a positive development.

The Judge@V8POW

Anderson Cooper barely able to contain his excitement about Whites becoming a minority.

Not thrilled about being replaced in the country your ancestors founded: you're a "Supremacist"

Understand White People, you're already in a race war.

“There’s nothing really they can do against this incredible demographic revolution. And in 2044, everyone is going to be a minority,” he said.

The media has repeatedly asserted that even raising the “conspiracy theory” of “the great replacement” or the demographic decline of white people puts you on a par with mass shooters and terrorists.

However, it’s apparently completely fine to talk about the issue so long as you proclaim the demographic decline of whites to be a positive thing.
