Every time I see or hear Rick Perry talk, it blows my mind that he’s the longest serving governor of Texas. Heck, it blows my mind that he became governor at all. He reminds me of a male version of Sarah Palin. Except, unfortunately, he didn’t quit halfway through his first term.
Well, as many people might have heard by now, Governor Perry has been indicted on two different felonies. Not only that, but recent information has come out that seems to indicate Perry didn’t call for the resignation of other District Attorneys who had been convicted of the same crimes for which he called for Rosemary Lehmberg’s resignation.
Though the other three DA’s just happened to be Republicans – and not investigating his office for corruption.
But since Perry’s indictment, he’s made an absolute mockery of our judicial system. He’s dismissed these charges as a “political stunt” even though a grand jury (not one individual) declared that he should be brought up on charges.
Though even if he feels these charges are politically motivated, that’s no excuse to act as flippant and careless as he has throughout this whole process. I’m not saying he has to outwardly show distress if he feels confident that he’s innocent, but as a governor he should at least respect our legal process. Which he absolutely hasn’t.
The latest show of disrespect comes by way of his PAC (RickPAC) that’s now selling t-shirt’s with Perry’s mugshot on them. But not only that, they put the mugshot of Rosemary Lehmberg on the back.
Real classy, aren’t they?
Perry even posted a link on his Twitter account people could use to buy one of the shirts.
I just want to remind everyone that this is the Governor of Texas behaving like this. His actions remind me more of some spoiled rich kid who thinks they’re above the law than someone who’s supposed to be a grown man and a public servant.
Again, I don’t care if he believe that he’s innocent, this isn’t how someone in his position should act when facing such serious charges.
It’s behavior like this that makes me absolutely embarrassed that this man is the governor of my state.
