Forget the police.  Prosecutors are the local authority figures I fear the most.

This is nothing but a political hit and political payback.  They know in the end nothing will happen just like with Tom Delay, but they can take Perry out for 2016 and perhaps try to help Abortion Barbie in the upcoming election.

The Texas Legislature needs to remove this authority from the Travis County DA and give it to the AG's office where it belongs.

Travis County is the liberal boil on the butt of Texas, and they regularly go after Republicans on trumped up charges.

The appointed special prosecutor is accused of having a witness leave in order not to testify.  Of course, a Democratic judge allowed this Democratic defense attorney to do so.   :whistle:

Kay Bailey Hutchinson indicted by Travis DA.  Charges dropped

Tom DeLay indicted by Travis DA.  Charges dropped

Rick Perry indicted by drunk Travis DA.  I assume charges will be dropped.  The bad news for the Dems is, even in reading the Austin online paper, people see right through this ruse.

Perry should refuse to show up for arraignment and booking and become a fugitive.  Let's see if the Dems have the balls to storm the governor's house and frog-march him into custody.

Besides, this is a classic case of sovereign immunity: the county DAs derive their power solely from the state government, and thus cannot prosecute a sitting state elected official for performing his or her official duties. This is the same reason a police officer can't arrest the President.

In Texas, the Travis County DA has the authority to prosecute any and all state officials including federal ones.  You can blame the legislature for giving them this power and not removing it when the Travis County DA became a political hack who uses their office to take out people based only the fact that they are Republicans.
