Rick Perry Indicted for Refusing to Fund Drunk DA
Posted by Steve Markowitz on August 17, 2014
Texas Gov. Rick Perry was indicted on Friday for refusing to fund the State’s Public Integrity Unit. The implication is that the Governor either overstepped his authority or has attempted to block some related investigation. While this may be the case, there is at least antidotal evidence that the Unit is run by an incompetent District Attorney.
The Texas Public Integrity Unit is headed by Dist. Atty. Rosemary Lehmberg. In 2013, DA Lehmberg was arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol. A video below shows her booking at a Texas police station. She is not only an incoherent, but also threatens the arresting officer.
Irrespective of Perry’s motive in not funding the Public Integrity Unit, DA Lehmberg has proven to be an inappropriate public servant to have the power to make decisions on criminal matters. However, like too many “servants” of the People, she is not held accountable for inappropriate behavior. It is another example of the growing tyranny by the governing class.
