This article says most of the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas money went to Republican donors. Tea Party leaning donors, I assume

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals on Wednesday scheduled arguments on whether to send former Gov. Rick Perry to trial on one of the felony charges that hung over his failed presidential campaign.

The state's highest criminal court put Perry's case on the fast track by ordering briefs due Oct. 21, and agreeing to hear oral arguments on Nov. 4 on the abuse of official capacity charge. The felony is punishable by 5 to 99 years in prison.

Perry's attorneys did not want oral arguments, but the state did.

Perry's criminal case has wound its way for 14 months from Travis County Court to the state's Third Court of Appeals, where Perry appealed a visiting judge's refusal to quash the indictment.

In July, the Third Court of Appeals dismissed a lesser charge, coercion of a public servant, as unconstitutional. The court left the abuse of official capacity charge intact and Perry's legal team appealed to the Court of Criminal Appeals in August.

Well WTF? Yall think former Texas Governor Rick Perry will get some time?

I personally feel that he will be convicted of this charge. I don't think he will get 99 years in prison. Probably probation. You can't fire a county attorney tho, even if you are the governor of Texas and that county attorney went after all your buddies.
