Governor Rick Perry face his accusers

Governor Rick Perry face his accusers

Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted by a grand jury for abuse of power.  Governor Perry’s attorneys are requesting a copy of the grand jury testimony.  The special prosecutor is claiming a “centuries-old law on secrecy,” to deny this request. 

What “centuries-old” law?  Whatever that “centuries-old law” is, it is insignificant because the U.S. Constitution is supreme over any “centuries-old law” in the U.S.A.  Specifically the 6th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which is universally referred as one has a right to face their accuser.  The text of the Sixth Amendment:

“In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.”

The prosecutor in Governor Perry’s case is one of them thar Democrats.  To 21st century Democrats in the USA the Constitution is an impediment to be ignored.    

Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted by a grand jury for what is claimed to be abuse of power.  The charges filed by special prosecutor Michael McCrum.  The charges were filed in Travis County.  Travis County is nicked named the “San Francisco of the South.”  Travis County being where Austin is located and a very liberal city by Texas standards.

The case stems from Governor Rick Perry veto of legislation giving money to a department headed by Rosemary Lehmberg. The reason for the video was Governor Perry urged her to resign after she was arrested for drunk driving and her subsequent behavior.  Below are articles and videos of that event:
