BREAKING: Rick Perry indicted on two felonies



Why, it was only a few months ago that I posted Rick Perry lawyers up for criminal investigation of bribery, coercion, abuse of authority (VIDEO). Follow that link for the back story.

Now there's this, via the Dallas News:

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry was indicted on two felony counts for abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant late Friday by a Travis County grand jury.

The case stems from Perry’s vetoing the $7.5 million biennial funding for the Travis County Public Integrity Unit last year. He threatened to withhold the money unless District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg resigned.

What's his defense going to be? "I can't recall"? "God made me do it"?

    I'd say his Presidential run is done, but they did support Allen West last time, who was kicked out of the Army for torture. All he has to do is claim innocence, blame Obama, and the money will roll in.
