    I don't know whether what Perry did was a violation of the law but the DA should have resigned immediately.

    Especially since as DA of Travis county she headed the Public Integrity Unit.

    This woman was an unbelievable idiot considering the position she holds and the strong motivation Rick Perry has to replace her with a Republican.

    A taxpayer public fund under the direct control of Rick Perry, Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas, had awarded $11 million to a donor of Rick Perry's without review. Other taxpayer funds, the Emerging Technology fund and Texas Enterprise Fund, have had the same sorts of scandals. Awarding without review a total of $19 million taxpayer dollars from these funds to donors of Rick Perry. At the Cancer Prevention Research Institute, matters really went into meltdown with many top researching and staff leaving or a few being forced to leave by Rick Perry.



    At the link are many more links to articles and investigations:

    Yeah, she's drunk. She needs to resign for this ethical lapse not to mention the others she put at risk and for driving in the bike lane.

    I think her ethics and restraint in exercising her legal authority are a bigger question mark than Perry's based on the information available so far.

    Does someone have a link to an actual quote where Perry said "If you don't resign I will veto the appropriation" - or something to that effect?

    I don't think the drunk-as-squat DA should have resigned; she's as qualified to be DA as obama is to be PotUS.

    Maybe folks will wake up to how seedy Democrats get some "get back" when made to look like foolish, corrupt, power-drunken (and in this case, drunken on spirits), mouthy, corrupt, hos. Did I say corrupt ?

    I am certain the fat, formerly drunk DA ho is smirking somewhere, right now, all the while, receiving an unmerited taxpayer paycheck. I wonder what action the Texas Bar Association took ? She would be in deep do-do if she had pulled that stunt in Flardy, and the videos of her arrest had hit the media.

    DA should absolutely be out of office, but Rick Perry did it the wrong way. He should have gone out of his way to mention her and her transgression at every opportunity until she stepped down.

    Democrat operatives are really starting to play for keeps with this method pursuing their enemies criminally.
