    I’m no great Rick Perry fan but this is politics at it’s lowest.

    Drunk democrat in charge of a state ethics office?
    Elected by the county the state capital is in.Not the whole state?
    I bet the legislature changes that.

    I’m not aware of any rule anywhere requiring an elected official convicted of DUI to resign. Are you?

    Elected officials should be held to a higher standard. They all spent time and other peoples money to get the job, promising noble work and damning their opponent. If they screw up, tough, fire them. Maybe the word will get out that election is not a blank check.

    I suppose the hypocrisy of a self-proclaimed Christian bragging about his state executing prisoners is more acceptable than the hypocrisy of a state ethics official being arrested for drunk driving.

    The drunk republican DA’s busted in Texas were not asked to resign. Perry is carrying out a smear campaign.

    Perry needs to be elected to stop the liberals’ lies that the world is older than 6018 years, and that the world moves (1 Chronicles 16:30).


    Just because he couldn’t remember the three Federal agencies that most need to be eliminated, he was forced to drop out of the race in ‘12, but every Decent American hopes he’ll win in ’16 and move quickly to address the Servant Problem.

    I don’t really disagree, but that’s not the point. Whether Lehmberg is held accountable is up to the voters, not to Hopalong Chucklehead in the Governor’s mansion.

    I’m not familiar with Texas law & don’t live in Texas so I won’t try to comment on the Gov’s actions.

    “Elected officials should be held to a higher standard.”

    I agree. Lehmberg should have resigned, but that’s between her and the voters. Perry abused his power as governor by attempting to publicly coerce Lehmberg into resigning. As much as Lehmberg should resign, so should Perry.

    Skip the uninformed comments supporting Perry. Go read some facts before displaying your own lack of knowledge and poor judgments.

    Do you know the DA and judge issuing the indictments are Republicans one appointed my Perry? Does that make the DA political for following the law?

    You prefer not to follow the law? Perry certainly has good lawyers in a State favoring Repubs anyway. Why worry?

    If you care to read some unbiased facts Perry may have much to worry about because he got used to abusing his power and tried to close any investigations of his own actions and friends of his? Is that how you want your government to operate? Or you can blame it on politics even if found guilty?

    If Perry is innocent I hope he is found innocent, do you?? because that implies the latter, LOL

    The veto was legal, the blackmail was the crime. The Public Integrity Unit is under the DA in the organization charts, but being a state-funded body is essentially independent in function. Gov. Goodhair, having no public integrity, was covering himself. A half century ago, this body got rid of an
    attorney general with a long record of looking out for the people, on grounds so arcane that it took two days for the media to find a lawyer who could explain what it was – and even then it made no sense.

    “Elected officials should be held to a higher standard.”
    ..
    Unfortunately, they are most often permitted a lower standard, and not even “held” to that.
