Right.

Of course, this is not the case here.

Has nothing to do with the case... you don't need hypothetical examples to understand what law was broken.

The case here is Gov Perry- and when he wasn't drunk, which is unusual- tried to use the threat of state funding coerce another state employee to resign.

That would be against the law if he did it in the manner the DA who is prosecuting him said he did it.

You have never met Scandinavians, apparently.
Simple. If Sweden is such a paradise like Liberal claim, why does it have one of the highest suicide rates of all country?? Happy people dont kill themselves often.

A) What libels claim Sweden is a Paradise?
B)What makes you think suicide rates are an indication of Paradise? Egypt & Syria are at the bottom of the list of states (at 100 or more) while USA is in the top third.

But here is how I differ from Liberals. I may not like some of the rulings and opinions of the four Liberal justices, but I would oppose their removel from the Court ,except for illegal activity.
In a free society people are allowed to have their own beliefs and opinion and I would never impose my belief on others.. So I guess I cannot be a liberal.
LOL, twist and turn. Can't face any facts can you. How about the illegal activity of overturning our elections and appointing the person they want as president? How about ending our democratic republic and allowing corporations to buy any and all politicians? Illegal activity? If you can't see the improper behavior then you won't even be able to buy a clue.

A more appropriate analogy would be if a supreme court justice was being investigated for corruption, and one of the investigators was caught drunk, and he abused his authority to end the investigation into his own corruption.

Instead of your nonsense about why you can't be a liberal, you can't be a liberal because you would have to deal with reality, not the made up Fox Fantasy.

AS has already been pointed out: Gov. Perry did not choose to call his two previous friends out or ask for their resignation but he did call for the resignation of someone investigating his office.
The fish stinks from the head.
PS: Did you enjoy the video of Perry drunken speech made in RI when he was running for POTUS last time?
I get a real laugh from watching biden every time he opens his trap! he appears being under the influence of alcohol all the time ! he actually reminds me of the Joker in the Batman movies !! anyway if your messiah is untouchable inspite of all his VIOLATIONS and one more with having swaped Merghdale for ALL those terrorists HE LET GO, even the Pentagon is shocked at this ! theres no way Perry will do anytime at all.....the judges know he was doing his job of keeping someone in a high position from continuing to receive tax payer money WHILE ENDANGERING the well being of the state and people.......had she killed someone in the indecent, shameful state she was driving in WHAT THEN ??? is this anyway to show our young people HOW TO LIVE THEIR LIVES.....PERFECT EXAMPLE OF A LOSER BITCH ! she looked disgusting, CHEAP AND DOWN RIGHT NASTY !!

And by the way, if your criterion is embarrassment to public servants, Rick Perry should be a bag boy in my local supermarket.
Not really, although Lehmberg is trying real hard to make it that way.
Every Governor has the authority to veto, even if that veto withholds funds. The Governor of Texas has the power of line-item veto. Now, guess what?
The Texas Legislature can override the Governor's veto. In this case, that didn't happen.
That is because the Governor's veto was and is reasonable.
Many Democrats understand that a committee charged with ensuring integrity should not be headed by a drunk and disorderly DA who attempts to abuse her power to avoid Justice.
Lehmberg's actions are an embarrassment to public servants.
I wouldn't trust her to bag my groceries.

But I hope this so called Scandal stay around for a long time so we can show the video of Lembergs arrest and point out how this is the type of public official the Democrats want to rule us.

Lemberg isn't the one charged here, californication.

Perry is.

And Perry is the one running for office.

Do you want to do a quick study on who has been helped with felony charges while running for POTUS?

The Democrats would love this to stretch out for another year.

Perhaps Perry will come up with an excuse to resign early... that he wants to spend more time with his family....

Sure.

Rick Perry wants to make a big deal about official being drunk in public...



PS: Two other DAs were arrested for DUII while he was governor.

Guess how many of them he asked to resign?

There is a large number of Democrats like David Axlerod who realize this is a fight that just makes their party look bad and want it to go away. But the good news is ther still a lot who dont realize this and want to fight it out.

I agree, SirPrize....... what an embarrassment this NASTY public servant is to Texas! I think there should be some kind of watch group keeping tabs on these nasties that benefit from our tax money for their pay. I object ! the wench actually believes she is doing her job impeccably well ?

Whatever the outcome here, we're talking about Rick Perry. The very fact that he thinks he has a chance in perdition to become president confirms him as an idiot.

of course not, ugh !! but that woman's mug photo !! I bet she was belching and farting all over the officers too along with her belligerent behavior of kicking and screaming ! how funny the video ! most embarrassing and as a Texan I hope she doesn't stand any chance in the future of holding more public servant jobs. How funny, and humiliating for her but apparently it didn't FAZE her which goes to show she has no conscience ! or soul for that matter. She is shameful, mean looking, evil and the lowest of the lowest. NEXT !

<quoted text> No its very relevent. This lawsuit is over Rick Perry trying to get Rose Mary Lemberg to resign as she is an embarressment to ALL public servants.
In the past the Democrats would all be on record as trying to get her to resign and none would jump to her defense. They would all be acting as to be ashamed of her.
Im just wondering why Democrats are jumping to her defense in drove?
Your prespective is twisted. Perry is indicted for crimnal activities, not sued.
