Goodhair is indicted

This is great news http://www.texastribune.org/2014/08/15/grand-jury-indicts-perry-abuse-authority/

A grand jury indicted Gov. Rick Perry on Friday on charges of abuse of power and coercion as part of an ethics inquiry into his veto of funding for the state’s public integrity unit.

The inquiry began last summer after a ethics complaint was filed, alleging that Perry had improperly used a veto to deny funding for the unit, which is housed in the Travis County district attorney’s office and focuses on government corruption and tax fraud.

Goodhair is at the Iowa state fair today. This will add to his enjoyment

Here are her comments about Perry at the Iowa state fair. http://www.juanitajean.com/2014/08/15/rick-rick-no/

Deep breath.

Rick Perry hearts Rick Perry. He’s at the Iowa State Fair.

The Texas governor addressed the Iowa State Fair on Tuesday, and when the moderator thanked him after his speech, Perry reportedly said: “You’re welcome. I’m awesome!

No, no you’re not.

Which is to say that in order to avoid prison on a trial conviction -- minimum 5 years for the first degree crime -- he would need to plea-bargain for probation, yes?
