It’s kind of funny that a Democrat County (Austin Co.) in the Red state of Texas is bringing an insane indictment against a Republican governor for not wanting to give access to millions of tax payer dollars to a convicted felon – District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, who should have had the decency to resign after her arrest and conviction for felony drunk driving. We won’t even go into the fact that this woman has a drinking problem. A Liberal watchdog group, Texans for Public Justice, took offense to this, and filed a complaint against Perry, accusing him of abuse of official capacity, bribery, and coercion of a ‘public servant’ (‘public servant’ meaning the drunkard and convicted felon, Rosemary Lehmberg). The Judge appointed as prosecutor on the case, Michael McCrum, said, “I cannot elaborate on what exactly is concerning me, but I can tell you I am very concerned about certain aspects of what happened here.”
Just a funny coincidence…McCrum, a Democrat, was nominated to be a United States Attorney in West Texas, but withdrew from consideration after Republicans in the U.S. Senate held up his nomination. Now that is strange, isn’t it?
This entire episode started when the District Attorney in Travis County, Rosemary Lehmberg, was pulled over near Lake Travis, on April 13, 2013. An open bottle of Vodka was found in her vehicle, and she was promptly arrested upon failing the field sobriety test – her blood alcohol level was 3 times the legal limit. Lehmberg then acted belligerently, and had to be physically restrained by being strapped into a restraining chair once she arrived at the jail. A real class act, huh?
Here is the dash-cam video of her arrest:
Here is her booking footage:
It’s no wonder that Governor Perry did not want her to head-up the State’s “Public Integrity Unit,” which is an entity that investigates “violations of elected officials.” He might as well have appointed an “illegal alien” to command the Texas Department of Public Safety unity, which watches the border between Texas and Mexico. Why hand over 8 million dollars to the control of not only a ‘Democrat,’ but a drunkard to boot? And we all know just what happens to tax-payer money when a Democrat gets their hands on it…it simply “disappears,” and nobody seems to know where it went…just ask President Obama where 9 trillion dollars of taxpayer money has gone under HIS watch.
Even former senior adviser to Obama, David Axelrod, says this indictment is “sketchy.”
Governor Perry had recently, after repeated attempts to get the Obama administration to secure the border between Texas and Mexico failed, mobilized the Texas Rangers, the Texas Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the Texas National Guard to secure the border in his state. And another funny coincidence: Rick Perry is one of the possible Republican presidential candidates for 2016.
What do you think, Ladies and Gentlemen….coincidence…or political character assassination?
I’ll tell you what I think about this….the whole thing stinks like my teenage son’s tennis shoes!Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
