Travis County (Austin TX) Grand Jury Indicts Rick Perry
It is no accident whatsoever
that it was a Travis County grand jury that indicted Perry on two felony counts for abuse of power. Travis County is essentially Austin, the Berkeley of Texas, a county with a history of such anti-Republican political indictments. neo-neocon / Rick Perry indicted

Black hole sun just got real.
From what I understand its pretty easy to get a grand jury indictment. What I want to know is how they got a DA to push for it.
Are you sure that's the Travis County Grand Jury? I just returned from a visit to Berkeley. I wouldmswear I saw those Grand jury members there.

Dear Christopher Taylor, The DA is Rosemary Lehmberg who was convicted of DWI and served 20 of her 40 day sentence and refused to step down. There is a video of her behavior at PJ Media.
Perry use a line item veto to defend an agency she heads.
"What I want to know is how they got a DA to push for it."
In this case, it wasn't hard.
I suggest reading this article.
As has been observed, it would appear that the democrats are launching spoiling attacks to sully prospective republican candidates in order to help their chances in this year's and in the 2016 election.
Notice how the media give lots of air time to this while not mentioning that,
When Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, Democrat, was arrested and charged with drunk driving on April 12, 2013, her blood alcohol level measured .23. That is just shy of three times the legal limit in Texas, which is .08....At one point, a female officer tells Lehmberg “You’ve been arrested for DWI.”
“That’s y’all’s problem, not mine,” Lemberg retorts, a clear threat given her position as Travis County DA.
It's well worth a minute or two of your time to read the link.
This is politics, plain & simple.
I hope Perry has found a way to start cleaning out that Travis County inquisition. They're the ones that indicted and convicted Tom Delay 2005-2010, finally to be overturned in 2013. But they're still after him.
Austin (& Travis County) was pretty much OK in the late '60s early '70s (I lived there then) until the UT students got to vote in what became the Peoples' Republic of Travis.
Texas needs to start an investigation regarding how many UT students vote both in Austin / Travis County and also back in their home districts wherever they might be.
There's probably a bit of duplication of effort there (voting in two places). And when you find one, prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.
(I think I used to work at IRS in Austin with some of the folks pictured on the Grand Jury.)
Other than the blogs, who's launching reciprocal attacks back at the Democrats? Some of which (The Fauxahauntas Princess herself, Liz Warren) Is ripe for attack and ridicule.
What? The GOP is above that sort of thing?
Well. I'm putting my hopes in the secret Militia Army that the FBI and NSA haven't found out about yet.
All of the Democrats' dirty actions are right out of Alinsky's playbook.
The Republicans are spineless.
Anyone who wants to oppose the Dems should read the playbook and use it against them.
You think there's anyone out there that thinks like this? The mindset is the first thing to acquire:
