Texas Gov. Perry Blasts Indictment Against Him as ‘Partisan Political Theatrics’

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) was indicted for political corruption because he attempted to pressure Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after she was arrested for drunk driving and for violently attacking police. The Gov. calls the indictment “partisan political theater” designed to hurt him and the state GOP.

“I intend to fight against those who would erode our state’s constitution and laws purely for political purposes, and I intend to win,” Perry said.

Lemberg is a Democrat and works in Austin, Texas, a solidly Democrat district.

Perry’s indictment follows an investigation into his threat to veto state funding to the Travis County Public Integrity Unit if the county’s district attorney, Rosemary Lehmberg, did not resign. Lehmberg had pleaded guilty to a drunken driving charge last year and served a 45-day sentence, but she would not step down when Perry called on her to go. The Travis County investigative unit is in the predominantly Democratic city of Austin. Lehmberg told NBC News that she had no comment on the matter. In May, Perry told NBC News that he didn’t regret his choice to veto the funds and that he did not commit a crime.
