Punch back twice as hard

“I will explore every legal avenue to expedite this matter and bring it to a swift conclusion,” Rick said Saturday in a statement. “I am confident we will ultimately prevail, that this farce of a prosecution will be revealed for what it is, and that those responsible will be held to account.”

  1. I am totally not getting how the accusation leveled at Perry. He actually didn’t do anything, it seems, just “threatened” to do so. Strong smell of politicking is wafting from this case.

  2. A good prosecutor, the saying goes, could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich. Which ain’t Kosher both ways. Rick didn’t do anything but politick, i.e. threatening and then following through with his veto power as governor.

    The DA is politicking as well, abusing her power, Click the link and watch her performance at the sheriff’s office when she was arrested for drunk driving last year and you’ll see what started the whole thing. Amazes me she’s still in office. She may not be for long after this.

  3. I wonder if Lemnburg knew about this beforehand, and if so approved? Talk about a fall guy!

  4. If you mean Rick’s indictment, she had to know. She’s the DA. She signs off on everything her office does. This is her petty revenge for him trying to make her resign. Which she should have done on her own. I hope it gets her reprimanded by the State Bar when some judge either quashes the indictment or if it should go to trial issues a directed verdict of acquittal.

  5. As far as that vodka bottle goes, it must be a sufficient incentive for the lady to resign. That she didn’t is an indication in itself. Probably she felt strong enough not only to survive the arrest, but take on Perry as well.

  6. Her ace is that the Democrats are afraid that if she resigns, the governor will appoint a Republican to take her place. And most locals pretty much had forgotten the incident (judging by the lack of talk about it a year later) which the indictment will now revive. On the other hand, the YouTube video has, so far, received only 578, 272 hits—most of which undoubtedly are from somewhere else, so she’s still ahead of the game.
