Isn't it obvious that a DA who blows .239, is convicted of DWI & goes to jail, should resign as DA in charge of the integrity unit? Does anyone disagree? If so, why?Texas Gov. Rick Perry Indicted For Abuse Of Power
A grand jury indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Friday for allegedly abusing the powers of his office by carrying out a threat to veto funding for state prosecutors investigating public corruption — making the possible 2016 presidential hopeful his state's first indicted governor in nearly a century.
A special prosecutor spent months calling witnesses and presenting evidence that Perry broke the law when he promised publicly to nix $7.5 million over two years for the public integrity unit run by the office of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg. Lehmberg, a Democrat, was convicted of drunken driving, but refused Perry's calls to resign.
please don't make me post the list of GOP politicians who screwed up and then wouldn't resign.
If Axelrod is saying the above DA is blowing smoke with her indictment--it says everything. Notice you left out Think Progress dissing this DA's move.
How does one violate VETO powers?
