Grand Jury is being empaneled and Perry is lawyering up

Today is a great day for Texans. A grand jury is being empaneled and Perry is lawyering up. http://www.politicususa.com/2014/04/14/republican-rick-perry-focus-criminal-investigation.html

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has lawyered up as the criminal investigation into whether he illegally withheld money from a district attorney’s office is gaining steam.

According to the American-Statesman:

Gov. Rick Perry has retained a high-profile Austin defense lawyer to represent him in a criminal investigation into whether he illegally withheld money from the Travis County district attorney’s office, the American-Statesman and KVUE-TV confirmed Sunday.

AUSTIN – A judge on Monday is expected to seat a grand jury to begin looking into the threat that Gov. Rick Perry carried out to veto funding for the Public Integrity Unit under Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg.

Perry last year said he would veto money for the unit, which prosecutes wrongdoing by public officials, unless Lehmberg resigned in the wake of a drunken-driving arrest.

There is a saying that a good prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich. There is not a great deal of difference between Perry and a ham sandwich.

1. Nice

"There is not a great deal of difference between Perry and a ham sandwich."
Hair being the only difference I can see although I did drop a slice of ham on the floor once and it then was exactly the same.

4. Juanita Jean is really enjoying watching Perry lawyer up

Juanita Jean is really enjoying watching Perry's self-inflicted wounds http://www.juanitajean.com/2014/04/14/lawyered-up/

Rick, Darlin’, Matlock couldn’t get you off.

You can check some background here, but it appears that Governor Perry might be in some manner of trouble and whatnot over threatening a public official when he got all “Me jogger. You Coyote.” on District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg.

The bottom line is that Perry threatened to withhold funding from the DA’s office unless the Lehmberg resigned. And, yes, that is a whole lot like what Chris Christi threatened to do with withholding Sandy relief funding, but poor dumb Rick didn’t get somebody to do the threatening for him under the table. Nope, this cowboy drew a crowd and threatened her on the steps of the capitol and in the damn newspaper. He is that macho and dumb.

Honey, be kind to both Christi and Perry because they can’t help it. It is some kind of strange chemical reaction between testosterone and Axe Body Spray that causes them to act that way.



The only reason this isn’t drawing as much attention as the Christi deal is that nobody – including coyotes – takes Rick Perry seriously any more.

If there is a trial, I have a feeling that Juanita Jean will be having another caravan heading to Austin to watch this trial. She was at the DeLay trial and at DeLay's sentencing.
