Rosemary Lehmberg, the District Attorney of Travis County, Texas, was busted for DWI. As a result, she did jail time and temporarily lost her license to practice law. She refused to resign her office, and now, a special prosecutor has indicted Governor Rick Perry for exercising his veto power over a part of the state’s funding for the DA’s office.
This case is so bizarre that even John Chiat and Think Progress are embarrassed by it, but much of the leadership of the Texas Democrat Party is gone all in, hoping to make a dent in the Republican Party’s control of state’s government.
