Oh, I hope, I pray, I hope, I pray. Is this real? Someone is actually performing justice for Texas. This Judge is taking a risk for his future. I understand Dallas is a GOOP stronghold, yes that is a typo but I'm gonna leave it. This is the first I've heard of this. This town is bad about bring forward news that is important to some citizens. Of course they report Cinco de Mayo and Diez y seis on time.

Special Prosecutor to Investigate TX Gov Perry for Coercion and Corruption
From The Dallas Morning News:
A San Antonio senior state district judge confirmed Thursday that he will name a special prosecutor to investigate possible charges of coercion and abuse of official capacity against Gov. Rick Perry.
Judge Robert “Bert” Richardson said he expected to name 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 annual funding of Travis County’s Public Integrity Unit.
Perry acknowledged that he let it be known that if Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, a Democrat, did not resign her office following a DWI conviction, that he would cut off funding for the integrity unit.
