Goodhair cuts funding for Public Integrity Unit

One of the other vetoes issued by Goodhair today is the line item veto of the funding for the Texas Public Integrity Unit http://www.texastribune.org/2013/06/14/senator-perry-vetoed-equal-pay-bill/

Gov. Rick Perry issued more than two dozen vetoes Friday, including a line-item veto that wipes out funding for the Travis County prosecutors who investigate government fraud and public corruption.


According to Juanita Jean, Goodhair's threat to veto this funding may have been illegal http://juanitajean.com/2013/06/14/oh-rick-being-a-bully-aint-cute/comment-page-1/#comment-61755

The campaign finance watchdog group Texans for Public Justice announced today that it has filed an official complaint with the Travis County District Attorney and County Attorney, asking them to look into whether Gov. Rick Perry broke the law in threatening to veto funding for the Public Integrity Unit unless Travis County DA Rosemary Lehmberg resigns her job.
