Perryhood: A Texas-Sized OOPS 14 Years In The Making

Rick Perry’s last day as Governor of Texas is upon us.

Made over 14 years with a rotating cast of cronies, Rick Perry’s sweeping drama of governorship is full of mistakes, missteps, and malfeasance. Too many to count.

Here are some snapshots—a not-so-nostalgic time capsule—of some of Rick Perry’s not-so-greatest moments.

Later, Rick Perry, it’s been…real. Continue reading this post »

The all-Republican 3rd Court of Appeals of Texas allowed the "abuse of official capacity" indictment count to proceed.

Rick Perry is learning the hard way that no politician is above the law.

Almost one year ago, Perry was indicted by a grand jury on two counts: abuse of power and coercion of a public official. Continue reading this post »

Rick Perry's financial skills are a Texas-sized disaster. If he couldn't be trusted to manage our money in Texas, why would any trust him to be President...

Rick Perry's latest oops moment - calling the Charleston shooting an accident - wasn't the only crass remark about guns last week. Ted Cruz also continued to make crass gun control jokes days after the shooting. 

The South Carolina shooting was no accident. With 9 dead, now is not the time to make jokes about gun control and mass homicide.

Apparently Rick Perry and Ted Cruz don’t care - and are trying their best to downplay what really happened in Charleston. Continue reading this post »

**UPDATE** Democratic Senator Rodney Ellis has filed opposition to close the loophole allowing Texas parents to opt-out of vaccinations if they have "personal objections." While Governor Greg Abbott said he supports the current opt-out law, the same law that has enabled a growth in the unvaccinated population from 2,000 to nearly 40,000 in 10 years.

A brave Republican is proposing to close the loophole in the Texas immunization law - but he is being met with resistance. In the name of liberty, of course. Continue reading this post »

So with a little help from singer Meghan Trainor, we remind Rick Perry why he got indicted: "It’s all about that bribe, ‘bout that bribe (no veto)!" 

This week a judge denied Rick Perry's challenge to an indictment stemming from abuse of power and bribery charges. So in response, Rick Perry went down to the Omni Hotel in Austin to talk to the press and defend a veto he issued.

That's right, the charge is for bribery and abuse of office, but Rick Perry thinks it's about a veto. Maybe that's why he keeps losing these legal challenges.

The Rick Perry indictment can be summed up in one sentence: it's not about the veto, it's about the bribe. Continue reading this post »

Rick Perry just responded to losing yet another challenge on his bribery indictment.

In the statement to the press, Perry and his high-priced lawyers continued to misrepresent the charges against the former Governor. This case is not about Perry's right to veto anything. Perry offered money for the resignation of an elecfted official. This is the crime he committed, and for which he is charged.

In fact, the complaint was filled before Perry issued the veto.

The veto talk is just a smokescreen and Rick Perry knows this - just see his remarks from last August in New Hampshire:

On Indictment, What Rick Perry Hopes We Don't Notice

Former Governor Rick Perry is at it again with his old antics of pretending he is “above the law.” But here’s the catch - no one is buying what his high-priced legal team is selling. Continue reading this post »

Rick Perry Loses Indictment Challenge. Again.

A state district judge threw out another technicality argument from Rick Perry’s high-priced legal team today, clearing the way for the case to proceed in court. Back in November, the judge threw out the first technicality argument made by Perry’s legal team. Continue reading this post »

It seems like Rick Perry has more lawyers than OJ Simpson, and his high-priced legal defense team has already cost his campaign more than $1 million. This is in addition to $80,000 that taxpayers have already spent on his defense.

The Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express-News got the scoop by combing through Perry's recently released campaign finance report for the second half of 2014: Continue reading this post »
