Perry is gong to do the perp walk

Rick Perry to turn himself in

Gov. Rick Perry, R-Texas, will surrender to authorities around 5 p.m. CDT on Tuesday to be booked and have his mug shot and fingerprints taken, CBS News has confirmed.

Perry was indicted last Friday on two felony counts of abuse of power, charges his attorneys call "outlandish" and "wrong." Perry himself has said the indictment is an "outrageous" abuse of power by the Travis County public integrity unit.

A judge decided Monday not to issue an arrest warrant.

Perry's legal team includes a number of well-known attorneys, including Ben Ginsberg, who has long been a staple in Republican politics. He represented former President George W. Bush in the 2000 Supreme Court case that awarded him the presidency, served as counsel to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in 2008 and 2012, and acted as the co-chair of President Obama's election reform commission.

1. Don't count on a conviction.

Not because he's not a corrupt jerk but because, as Dickens' Mr Bumble would say, "The law is a ass, a idiot."

3. Nothing will happen to him, he is rich, white and powerful

He should be glad he isn't a young black man suspected of shoplifting.

6. True - but some one else in Texas is more powerful

And this is not about convicting the criminal as much as it is about a future Presidential run. Jeb Bush is being helped her by powerful family in Texas.
