Rho Chalmers, who disclosed to the Houston Chronicle yesterday that she was a member of the grand jury that indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry, was an active delegate to the Texas Democratic Party convention during grand jury proceedings. Chalmers’ active participation in Democratic state politics is important because she claimed yesterday to the Houston Chronicle that her decision to indict Perry, a Republican, was not based on politics.
“For me, it’s not a political decision,” Chalmers told the newspaper. “That’s what a grand jury is about – take the emotion out of it and look at the facts and make your best decision based on your life experience.”
More troubling, however, is the fact that Chalmers attended, photographed, and commented on an event with Democratic state Sen. Kirk Watson while grand jury proceedings were ongoing.
Watson was a witness in front of the grand jury. On June 27, 2014, Chalmers shared a photo of the Watson event on a community Facebook page she started called Developer’s Dungeon. “Senator Kirk Watson telling the story of the Wendy Davis fillibuster (sic),” she wrote in a comment accompanying the picture.
The grand jury was selected in April of 2014 and its proceedings did not conclude until it returned two indictments of Perry last week. While grand jurors are not generally prohibited from engaging in political activity, Chalmers apparent giddiness at attending an event for a grand jury witness calls into question her ability to objectively scrutinize his testimony. Watson had testified before Chalmers and the rest of her colleagues on the grand jury just one month before Chalmers attended his event. Knowingly seeking out participation in an event featuring a grand jury witness while grand jury proceedings were ongoing also seems highly questionable.
May God Bless you Rick.
Only further proves this BS indictment against Rick Perry is nothing but a witch hunt, a vain attempt by the Dems to discredit him and, I have a hunch, petty retribution in an indirect way by the Obama administration for his daring to be defiant. Even Gov. Perry knows himself that this whole charade is nothing but a farce; the fact that he stopped off for an ice cream cone after being booked was his subtle way of conveying that message.
WITCH HUNT IS RIGHT EVEN D AXELROD WEIGHED IN ON PERRYS SIDE THEY KNOW IT IS PURE BULL
I have nothing but disgust for these democraps. They are from hell! Thier reward will come. God Bless Rick Perry.
No Honor, no self-respect just politics. Following the white House lead they don't need real laws, they just get in the way. I hope she gets taken apart. I wish Rick the best and thank him for having the guts to look these creeps in the eye and say "BRING IT ON!"
!! shock !! a delusional manipulative progressive in Austin?? wow...
easy pickins, but try to find a sane person there. especially one with enough social status to get on a grand jury.
In Travis county.... that is a Dem strong hold. Left over from the years of strangle hold the Dems had on Texas. Seems the "new lib people to Texas" land there. Plus they always have the U of Tx students who are passionate to vote... but do not have a clue about anything. They are guided by their far left Prof and many are just out to spite their parents who just don't know anything. When Ronnie Earl charged Tom DeLay it took him a # of Grand Jury's to get the vote he wanted. And that vote came shortly before this particular GJ would end. The Foreman of the GJ strutted out to the microphone and announced they would get DeLay this time. So much for Secret GJ.
There is no democrat party. Call it what it really is. The party de la muerte. El communistas. No God, No country, No flag, No kids.Flag burning is freedom of speech, Child murder is settled law. Legalizing drugs for tax money. What more could they do to destroy the country? I know play cards. Squash American pride.
Teach anti American atheism in communist cucumber sex schools. Destroy the military. Give outer space to the Russians and hang up on 911 calls from Benghazi. LEAVE AMERICANS TO DIE ON THE BATTLEFIELD AND BLAME NAM ON NIXON. Have their own communist media to cover up the high body count in Afghanistan. Take law abiding citizens guns away while rearming Al Queda and Isis. Other than that they are not bad people. Do you mind if I throw up?
Viva Christo Rey
They did the same thing to the Hammer Tom DeLay and they found it was all BS just like it will with Perry but you know the demoRats will make sure this damages him in some way.
Why certainly she weighed all the evidence against Gov.Perry that being that Gov.Perry is a Republican who is set to run for President in 2016 which he could win so that automatlcly made him GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY.For with holding funds from the Drunken Democrazy lush of a DA in Houston.Of course we all know that the fix was in to indict Gov.Perry for his defieing King OCrazys border surge with the 1000 National Guard sent to the Texas Mexico border.
I though all the proceedings including the jurors names were to be held in secret... did this woman violate the Grand Jury rules/laws if so ... she needs to be indicted.
