In one of the most flagrantly obvious abuses of power in US history, one of the most popular Republicans, who may run in the 2016 election, has been indicted for the alleged extortion of a judge. The judge in question is a liberal Democrat, who was caught drunk-driving and whom Governor Perry wanted to resign.
Governor Perry is very popular now that he’s sent 1,000 National Guard troops to the Mexican border. At least he responds to what the Republican base wants. The Democrats and system Republicans like Boehner and Romney have no intention of ever enforcing Immigration law and deporting significant numbers of illegal aliens.
An extortion charge involving a judge, normally involves someone trying to extort a judge to vote a certain way in a case. It seems highly unlikely that the law would apply to the case of a governor trying to get a disgraced judge to step down.
One article notes “A probe was launched last year after Perry vetoed $7.5 million in funding for an integrity unit that is part of the Travis County district attorney’s office. The veto was seen as hardball politics to force out county District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, a Democrat, after she pleaded guilty to drunken driving and remained in office.”
And why should Governor Perry give $7.5 million to an “integrity unit” that’s associated with a drunk-driving judge? Shouldn’t that judge’s department have enough integrity to remove an embarrassing drunken judge? And if it doesn’t, it shouldn’t get any money.
In fact the filing of charges against Governor Perry is another abuse of power by the Obama regime. Is John Boehner going to continue to ignore what Obama is doing and what he has done? Is Boehner going to sit around while the Obama regime literally files charges against future Republican presidential candidates in an abuse of power by the federal government?
The situation is literally getting out of control. The Republican Party needs to FIRE John Boehner from his position as Speaker of the House so we can get to the root of the problem and Impeach Obama. Boehner should have resigned his position when Eric Cantor was voted of his leadership position by the grass roots of the Republican Party. Either the Republican Party should remove Boehner now and replace him with someone willing to Impeach Obama or the Republicans in Boehner’s district need to vote him out of office in the general election by crossing over and voting for the Democrat –to make an example out of Boehner. The Republicans can afford to lose one House Representative and a “Republican-in-Name-Only” like Boehner, who protects illegal aliens and who won’t Impeach Obama, deserves to be kicked out of office. It’s just too bad we didn’t vote Boehner out in the primary.
