Texas Gov. Rick Perry Indicted On Abuse-Of-Power Charges
 
"Texas Gov. Rick Perry has been indicted by an Austin grand jury in connection with a veto of funding for state public corruption prosecutors."
 
 
INTERESTING FOOTNOTE:  Rick Perry's attorney is the same as Marc Rosenthal's appellate attorney.  The man is smart and, gutsy.  I would love to be in court to see this play out.  This is going to be a very interesting battle between two very highly competent attorneys.  From an attorney's perspective this is a trial you want played out in Texas Stadium with seats on the 50 yard line.  It's going to be epic to watch both sides.  .

In case you forgot, Rosenthal was convicted as part of the Limas mess.

What is the basis of Rosenthal's appeal?

I have no idea. But Rosenthal has the money so he is going to try.

I thought you were the research boy and this relates directly to Brownsville. What is up?

could it have to do with him getting 3 times the length of the sentence that the others got. What kind of prison did the others get because I've heard Rosenthal was sent to the Black Hole of Calcutta

The press reports and court orders seem to indicate Marc had a hard time following the rules related to his release pending trial. When it came to sentencing his conduct did not help him

Had he hired DeGuerin in the beginning, he probably wouldn't be sitting in jail.

What happened to "A grand jury will indict a ham sandwich if given the chance..."?

Up til now, you've trotted out that pathetic trope after any (and every?) indictment.

But not now. Now "it's going to be epic".

You're a fraud. Or you're unbalanced. Or you're an unbalanced fraud.

Yes, and it is possible that Gov. Perry's attorney will prove in this case the grand jury was prepared to indict a ham sandwich - my point is, because of the attorneys involved it will be an epic battle.

Perry is alleging discretion as part of his office - the DA is alleging it went beyond discretion because of the preceding threat.

Both very competent attorney are going to some damn good lawyering to make their argument the prevailing argument.

But if I understand your moronic statement you are saying because I said grand juries will indict a ham sandwich no indictments are ever valid - that is just plain stupid and pathetic on your part.

I have not commented on the merits of the indictment - all I said is because of who the attorneys are the battle will be epic.
