Special Prosecutor to Investigate Rick Perry

AUSTIN — A San Antonio senior judge confirmed Thursday that he will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate possible charges of abuse of office and coercion against Gov. Rick Perry.

Judge Robert “Bert” Richardson said he expected to select someone early next week, at which time “an order will be prepared and filed with the court.”

The investigation stems from the governor’s veto of $3.7 million in annual funding for Travis County’s Public Integrity Unit, which oversees public corruption and malfeasance complaints.

Rick Perry is one of the most corrupt Texas governors ever - quite an accomplishment.

Oh, wait ... that's only when a non-Republican is under investigation ...
