Texas Gov. Rick Perry Indicted For Abuse Of Power

The Washington Post reports “Texas Gov. Rick Perry has been indicted for abuse of power after carrying out a threat to veto funding for state public corruption prosecutors.

Perry is the first Texas governor indicted in nearly a century. He’s leaving office in January, but he’s a possible 2016 presidential run. Read more HERE.

AOL By WILL WEISSERT reports” Texas Gov. Rick Perry was indicted by an Austin grand jury on felony counts of abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant. Maximum punishment on the first charge is five to 99 years in prison. The second is two to 10 years.

Perry said Lehmberg, who is based in Austin, should resign after she was arrested and plead guilty to drunken driving in April 2013. A video recording made at the jail showed Lehmberg shouting at staffers to call the sheriff, kicking the door of her cell and sticking her tongue out.

Lehmberg served about half of her 45-day jail sentence but stayed in office, despite Perry’s assertions that her behavior was inappropriate.

Lehmberg, a Democrat, faced pressure from other high-profile Republicans in addition to Perry to give up her post. Her blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit for driving, and she eventually served about half of a 45-day jail sentence.

Meanwhile, the jail video led to an investigation of Lehmberg by a separate grand jury, which decided she should not be removed for official misconduct.

Lehmberg oversees the office’s public integrity unit, which investigates statewide allegations of corruption and political wrongdoing. Perry said he wouldn’t allow Texas to fund the unit while Lehmberg remained in charge. He used his line-item veto power to remove funding for the unit from the Texas budget.

Perry and his aides say he didn’t break any laws.” Read more HERE.

  1. Hi!

    According to the Associated Press news about Perry, it states in part that Rosemary Lehmberg (Democrat), whose office is the public integrity unit that investigates statewide allegations of corruption and political wrongdoing, was arrested and plead guilty to drunk driving which was 3 times the legal limit.

    According to AP news, Perry threatened to use his veto to fund that office that Ms. Lehmberg works in.

    Who is the criminal?

    Why it is Ms. Lehmberg, of course, as she was arrested and served ONLY half of her 45 day sentence according to the said AP.

    Why ONLY half of her sentence?

    Anyone else wouldn’t get such treatment.

    Did Governor Perry break any laws of Texas?

    I don’t know.

    Did he “harm” anyone by saying that he will use his veto power?

    Not that I know of.

    He does have that power so “just making” a statement that he will use it does NOT make him a criminal, does it?

    Of course not!

    He is a republican.

    Is this really to prevent him from running in 2016?

    Is this to “go after” republicans?

    Maybe.

    Is this so Hiliary (Democrat) can run and win in 2016?

    Maybe.

    It appears to me that the Grand Jury may have been used by someone (Democrats?) to cause trouble for Governor Perry in 2016.

    Thank you!

  2. last month I personally sent via USPS Certified Mail return receipt requested to our Washington State Governor Inslee who is also an attorney and member of the WSBA, sent him documented signed proof of Felony RICO Organized Crime Felony Judicial Criminal Corruption throughout the WSBA, the Superior Court, the Wa. State Court of Appeals Div.II, The Wa. State Supreme Court and all of their respective Clerks Offices. Also the Tacoma Wa. U.S. Bankruptcy Court, U.S. District Court, U.S. Attorney Office in Seattle, The FBI in both Seattle & Tacoma, Proof of Fraud, Color of Law, Extortion by the State of Wa. via Color of Law and threat of major loss through fraudulent liens by the State of Wa. abusing the Law, Authority of Office and the Judicial System, violations of Due Process and intentional malicious improper venue being assigned in each and every case I have had so as to flagrantly Obstruct Justice and War upon innocent citizens, defraud them and illegally fraudulently convert Title /Deed to Real property via an in house Foreclosure Mill operated by two local attorneys, and a foreclosure Company owned and operated by the wife of one of the same attorneys, basically all of them having but 2 separate address. Proof of Felony Grand theft, Proof of the Superior Court allowing the unlicensed practice of Law multiple times during my divorce proceedings. Asking for a meeting with our Governor concerning all of this that he has jurisdiction and authority over. Governor Inslee deigned to meet with me , nor respond to this Official Written notice of Criminal Felony Organized Crime Judicial Corruption within all aspects of the Wa. State Judicial System. In essence Misprisoning Criminal Felony organized Crime, RICO, Color Of Law , Fraudulent conversion/Home and property theft by the Judiciary. Aiding & Abetting all of the aforementioned most serious Felony Crime, becoming an accessory after the fact to all of this knowingly and willingly. Practically begging to keep up with Texas Governor and share a cell with him possibly so they could share stories about the Fraudulent robbing and Stealing good ol days I guess. By not responding and refusing to assist me after being provided undeniable hard evidence on Court documents that are on docket and easily verifiable, violating Sworn Oath to Office and the Law itself, the parties that I have notified of this are presently guilty of committing serious Felony crimes, proof established via the little green card provided by the USPS. These corrupt
    Government actors are down for this Criminal organized Crime corruption and there is no line , no law , no life that they will not violate, attempt to illegally destroy . This is beyond simply cronyism and legal abuse. This is Organized Crime, and legal Terror, Legal Torture. Off the Hook ,

  3. Well this is a bit off the beaten path here, but it might provide a break in the current and provide a look from the recent past. A little retrospect humor, in a sense;

  4. Hi!

    Both republicans and democrats are down and dirty.

    It doesn’t matter who is president – democrat or republican. They both work for the “insiders.”

    They are all crooks.

    Thank you!

    • Do they think that the people do not know this? The more they open mouth…the more they insert foot.

  5. Hi!

    Soon there will be a woman president.

    Who will she work for?

    The insiders, of course.

    She won’t make it to that position without agreeing to their tactics, and if she goes against them, then the same thing will happen to her as happened to Kennedy.

    The people need to “wake up.”

    Thank you!

  6. Hi Bruce,

    Suggestion: Separate your information into paragraphs as it is very difficult to read.

    Most people won’t read your message the way it is written.

    Thank you!

    Lise from Maine

    • Bruce, it is difficult to read, but do appreciate your input.

      • Sorry about that, it was quite late and I was trying to hurry so I copied and pasted. For some reason it came out like that and was clustered together. I will keep you posted with my current events regarding this topic.

        Within reading these various posts, and seeing that some folks still do some how retain the belief that that is “2” different parties , that one of which prioritizes our best interests, including the ability to be a cure all for what ails this Nation, its government and the people the government is suppose to (RUMOR) represent the best interests of, including the noted popularity of the Democratic one.

        Combined with the Texas Governor the topic of this blog, it reminded me of some material I received a while back from associates of mine down in Houston Tx.

        In consideration of the fact that many of us here on this site have so little to laugh about after the experiences we have had with corruption, RICO and patrons of, plus knowing that a little chuckle once in a while will not finish us off, I thought I would risk sharing the following with you;

        Joke; My Daddy the Dancer

        My Daddy the Dancer

        One day a fourth-grade teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living.

        All the typical answers came up — fireman, mechanic, businessman, salesman, doctor, lawyer, and so forth.

        However, little Justin was being uncharacteristically quiet, so when the teacher prodded him about his father, he replied, “My father’s an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret and takes off all his clothes in front of other men and they put money in his underwear. Sometimes, if the offer is really good he will go home with some guy and stay with him all night for money.”

        The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some exercises and then took little Justin aside to ask him, “Is that really true about your father?” “No,” the boy said, “He works for the Democratic National Committee and is helping to get Hillary Clinton to be our next President, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids.”

  7. Hi!

    Most people do not realize that the republicans and democrats all work for the insiders and not us, the people.

    I come across them far too often who don’t understand how things actually work.

    Just because we have been “dumbed down” does not mean we can’t learn.

    We can learn if we take the time to read and study.

    Thank you!
