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.”

This woman was argumentative. She was non-cooperative.The officer was very courteous with her.  She kept saying you are going to ruin my career. She knows the law but she obviously didn't care. Now the democrats are blaming Governor Perry to get rid of her. If it would happen to me, I would have to surrender my flying privileges. Here we have an attorney that is braking the law. This is crazy and pure unethical. I hope that Perry would not be charge and  that the truth would eventually come out.

How 'coinidental'? that a potentailly scandalous news item concerning Texas Governor Perry should break just two days after Governor Perry embarrasses the federal government by calling out the Texas National Guard to the southern border.
Are you catching a whiff of petty socialist stink too?

This inditment stinks all the way to here in Florida. How about an investigation of how this came about, who's really behind it, who financed it, and why is it comprised of only Demorates. Might also ask why nothing was done to R. Lehmberg for removing a public drunk from office or at least a suspention.

As a fellow Floridian I can smell the stench here in Orlando as well.  Anytime the Dems are in deep trouble they seem to revert to questionable tactics to sway momentum in their direction, and IMHO that's what this matter is all about.  A well-know credo of the left is "the ends justify the means". 

This woman has zero credibility. I would not hire her to defend me in any matter before a court of law. As I understand this case - it is a she said vs. a he said.  The grand jury took her side against a respected governor. This woman should not be in charge of any government entity surely not a legal one. A grand jury is formed with no one being questioned as to their political affiliation. Clearly the grand jury must have had more demon rats than sane citizens as members. The whole process should be stopped - the evidence should be presented to a district judge for a proper determination of facts & then be allowed to continue based on the judge's decision or thrown out in it's entirety with no possible further action allowed. The stupidity I believe to have already occurred is beyond belief. Tell the DA to show us the facts of the case or shut up & resign. This he said - she said is a political farce. I would call for an investigation of the DA immediately before any further proceedings in the case.

The libs look so stupid trying to push this.

   This fool got exactly what she deserved.  The Actual question is, "Who headed the Grand Jury.?" That will tell you why this even occurred.

Remember....Holder (with his phone and pen), not Hussein....but both directed by Jarrett and the untold number of secret Czars (shadow government)...are directing this debacle...Why? .. Just like with Christie (NJ)...Walker (WI) and any other R....Gov. or otherwise, that rears their ugly head (in the eyes of Jarrett)...gets targeted. Gov. Perry, just the latest threat to them!! This is their plan to keep the Senate in 14...with implications for the "biggie" in 16. Not rocket science!! Only problem we have...is the first phone call is to the LMSM (press)....get their talking points on this from the "white house" war room!! It is all a lie, anti-American/s...to start with....the entire political program we have seen since we took the House in 10. This/that is what we are seeing every day.....take the heat off Hussein...any way they can. 

Another about the law pos libertard.  I hope rick perry wipes the floor up with this idiot.

I am sure that in the offices where this lady works, and around the grapevine...it is probably a well known fact that everybody knows this women's alcohol problems, but instead, because of her position everyone has enabled her to continue in this state of self destruction...in the meantime all of her cases in the past few years should be reviewed for judicial review...and she should have been sent to a mandatory rehab....what an embarrassment.....and she should have been fired or resigned from her position.....and that entire office of the district attorney should be under investigation......I am sure emails have been dumped and evidence has gone missing....

Same game plan they used on Tom DeLay to ruin his reputation.

ALERT ALERT

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.
