Tea Party Express Attacks Indictment of Governor Rick Perry

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, attacks the obviously partisan indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Tea Party Express’ Executive Director Taylor Budowich said, “It’s no secret the Democrats are looking to turn Texas purple. However, instead of challenging the ideas and policies coming out of Austin, they’re resorting to a frivolous indictment to tar and feather one of the state’s most successful governors.

“The Travis County District Attorney’s office has a disturbing history of targeting Republicans for a perceived political gain, and this case is no exception. Democrats that are cheering on this lawsuit may think they are benefiting by both by weakening the state party and undermining a 2016 frontrunner, but just the opposite is true. These Democrats are showing America just how low they will go to cling on to power. At the end of the day, both the ideas and tactics of the left will fail.

“Whether it is the IRS or the drunk driving Texas D.A., mixing a political agenda with law enforcement is unacceptable and has no place in America. I remain proud of Governor Rick Perry’s accomplishments as Governor and his continued contributions to the national dialogue,” Budowich concluded.
