It’s sad to say that the story you’re about to read isn’t made up.
Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg was pulled over for driving erratically in April of 2013. When officers pulled her out of her car and administered a field sobriety test, it was discovered she was well over the state’s legal limit.
She was three times over the state’s legal limit. (Maybe it was because she was driving with an open bottle of vodka in the car.)
The woman was an absolute mess at the stop, as you can see in the video below.
After Lehmberg was arrested and brought into custody, this senior law-enforcement official berated and verbally abused arresting officers, even making a finger gun (those are banned, right…) and pointing it at them.
After the incident, an investigation was opened up into the D.A.’s drinking habits and it was discovered that the D.A. had a little bit of a drinking problem (she bought 72 bottles from one liquor store alone over the course of a year).
So what does this have to do with Governor Rick Perry?
Following Lehmberg’s arrest, Perry had asked her to make make the responsible decision and step down from the office of District Attorney.
That’s the right call to make.
A disgraced D.A. who has no ability to follow the law of her own accord should be asked to step down. It’s only fitting.
Perry was even gracious enough the allow Democrats the ability to select her replacement.
But she wouldn’t step down, so Perry had to resort to other measures to make her budge.
The real twist is this.
According to Sarah Palin:
Lehmberg’s D.A.’s office runs the state’s Public Integrity Unit which prosecutes public crimes like government corruption. Texans were baffled that this clearly unfit official was running a unit with huge statewide importance and they lost confidence in this government oversight unit.
Governor Perry used appropriate tools under the Texas Constitution to urge Lehmberg to do the right thing, using line item veto power to defund the Public Integrity Unit until it could actually serve the public with integrity, under a leader who had integrity.
According to reports, he reached out to alleviate the Democrats’ fears about her replacement by promising to select her right hand man for the post – essentially giving liberals their desired replacement. All he wanted was for this unfit public official to step aside.
However, Lehmberg would have none of it, and is now on a mission to see that Perry is sentenced to prison time for using his authority to remove her from the position she was obviously unfit to serve.
Typical liberal Democrat, huh?
This is the nation we live in.
Democrats using ugly tactics to make it difficult for justice to be served.
