The World's Most Absurd Indictment, Cont'd

| 1 Comment
The poisonous prosecutorial stunt masquerading as the Perry indictment is being exposed for what it is by honest liberals from coast to coast.

This, for example, is what Alan Dershowitz (whom I debated on CNN about capital punishment) is reported to have said:

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz calls himself a "liberal Democrat who would never vote for Rick Perry," but he's still "outraged" over the Texas governor's indictment Friday on charges of abuse of power and coercion.

The charges are politically motivated and an example of a "dangerous" trend of courts being used to affect the ballot box and politics, he told Newsmax on Saturday.

"Everybody, liberal or conservative, should stand against this indictment," Dershowitz said. "If you don't like how Rick Perry uses his office, don't vote for him....

Dershowitz also told Newsmax Perry was well within his rights when he vetoed the money for Lehmberg's office, as he "saw a drunk serving as DA" who "shouldn't be enforcing criminal law."

Dershowitz believes Perry will be acquitted, and the indictment will become an embarrassment to those involved.


I disagree with Prof. Dershowitz in one respect.  Perry will never be acquitted, because the indictment will never get to a jury.

The problem, Bill, is that liberals, for the most part, don't really care about the implications for our democracy. This is an appalling abuse of power, and, in my view, Perry should not cooperate by allowing himself to be fingerprinted or anything like that.
