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

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
