The Travis County prosecutor is out for revenge and using the power of his office to execute it and take down a presidential contender while he’s at it.
This is what life under totalitarian Democrats will be like for all of us if they are allowed to get away with it.
Take a look at Travis’ County DA Rosemary Lehmberg’s nasty drunken behavior in the video below which she exhibited at her arrest and booking. She is the reason Governor Perry has been charged with felonies that could put him in jail for 109 years.
These politically-motivated charges are meant to do to him what New Jersey Democrats did to Chris Christie – ruin his chances at the White House.
Watch her seemingly drunken behavior and her deceit during her arrest and ask yourself if you want her serving as your DA:
At the end of this booking video, Lehmberg makes a gun out of her fingers, points it at whoever was taking the video, and appears to shoot.
This says more about the Democrats orchestrating this than it does about Rick Perry.
Famed law Professor Alan Dershowitz is a liberal Democrat who says he’d never vote for Rick Perry but he is “outraged” by the charges against Perry.
The charges are politically motivated and an example of a “dangerous” trend of courts being used to affect the ballot box and politics, he told Newsmax on Saturday.
“Everybody, liberal or conservative, should stand against this indictment,” Dershowitz said. “If you don’t like how Rick Perry uses his office, don’t vote for him.”
Dershowitz said this is what is done in totalitarian countries.
District Attorney’s office in Travis County, Texas, filed its indictment against Perry charging he overstepped his powers by threatening to veto, and then vetoing $7.5 million in funding for the office’s Public Integrity Unit after District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg refused to step down after her conviction for drunken driving.
Perry is well within his constitutional rights to have vetoed this funding.
“We don’t settle political differences with indictments in this country,” the Republican governor said in a brief news conference Saturday afternoon. “It is nothing more than an abuse of power — and I cannot and will not allow that to happen.”
Even President Obama’s former senior advisor weighed in against this indictment with a tweet.
“Unless he was demonstrably trying to scrap the ethics unit for other than his stated reason, Perry indictment seems pretty sketchy,” Mr. Axelrod tweeted.
Democrats have to know it shows them to be statists who will abuse their authority.
Gov. Bobby Jindal called it a “witch hunt” and Sen. Ted Cruz voiced his support of Perry.
