I have looked a bit more deeply into the Governor Rick Perry indictment. Unfortunately, the new information I have uncovered does not quiet my concerns that the indictment was improper. Quite the contrary.
The basis of the indictment is that Government Perry threatened to veto an appropriation passed by the Texas legislature for a public corruption unit on the ground that the head of the unit had committed a crime. Perry wanted the head of the unit to resign before he would approve the appropriation.
