Rick Perry has no power to commute a death sentence unless the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles makes that recommendation.  All he can do is delay the execution for a month.

Perry has no intention of commuting or deferring this execution if he follows precedent.  A letter from Lurch will make no difference.

You're right.

Unlike Kerry and Obama, Perry will obey the law.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Bingo.  All Lurch needs now is a quicky to North Korea for a selfie with Kim Jong Un-Pleasant right before the Boy Leader sets off his next nuclear test for the Iranians.

Don't forget to "Blame Bush." Two diametrically opposed systems lumped together as part of the Axis of Evil. Got to be Bush's fault.

And contacting the Mexican consulate would have done what, exactly, for this guy?  It wouldn't have freed him; it wouldn't have substantially contributed to his defense.  So even if this is a violation, it's an extremely technical violation.
