 Perry Selling T-Shirts With His Mug Shot to Raise Political Cash

Saturday, 23 Aug 2014 07:24 AM


 
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, facing abuse-of-power charges, started selling T-shirts featuring his mug shot to raise money for his political committee.

RickPAC_Donate_Wanted-Tshirt_400x400_v1-1.jpgThe shirts, which went on sale yesterday, show the Texas Republican's picture with "WANTED" stamped above it and "FOR SECURING THE BORDER AND DEFEATING DEMOCRATS" underneath.

On the back, there’s a picture of Travis County, Texas, District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg's mug shot, with the word "GUILTY" stamped above it.

Perry, 64, is accused of overstepping his gubernatorial authority by threatening to veto the budget for a public- corruption office unless Lehmberg, a Democrat who led the unit, quit. She had been convicted of drunken driving. When she refused to resign, Perry cut the funding.

The mug shot was taken Aug. 19 when Perry was booked on the charges after a grand jury indicted him.

The T-shirt is selling for $25 and proceeds would go to RickPAC, a political action committee formed by the governor. Perry plans to use the committee to donate money to Republican congressional candidates. Those checks will also help Perry build support within the party that could boost a 2016 presidential campaign, which he is considering.

I think so.  I believe this ridiculous indictment improves Perry's prospects for 2016.

I've always liked Rick Perry and right now, he's probably my #1 candidate for 2016.  He is head and shoulders more qualified than any other potential candidate that hasn't been a Governor.  Scott Walker falls in that category too.  They both have an outstanding record of achievement to run on.  Perry has the most experience  - I'm just hoping he doesn't stick his cowboy boot in his mouth again.

I might buy one just for laughs!
Trump does not represent the will of the people.  If we really wanted to respect the decision of "the people," then Clinton would be the president-elect, not Trump, for the simple reason that she won the popular vote.

Somebody noted that  in Rosemary Lehmberg's mug shot, she looks like John Belushi.    :smokin:


btw, the T shirt is a great idea!
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!
