Rick Perry Turned Himself In And We Have The Mugshot To Prove It
Texas Governor Rick Perry turned himself into Travis County Jail in Austin this afternoon after being indicted on two felony charges.
There were allegations that his office was trying to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign from her position.
“This prosecution would seek to erode the power of all Texas governors — Republican or Democrat — to veto legislation and funding that they deem inappropriate,” Perry told reporters. “This indictment is fundamentally a political act that seeks to achieve at the courthouse what could not be achieved at the ballot box.”
