Quotes

Targeting and thwarting an ongoing investigation is no small matter as it undermines the essential fact-finding function of our judicial system. "At the time of Mr. Perry’s veto last year, prosecutors in the unit had been investigating a state agency called the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas. The agency — one of Mr. Perry’s signature initiatives — came under scrutiny by state lawmakers after accusations of mismanagement and corruption; a former official there was indicted last year for his handling of an $11 million grant.” The corresponding veto can be deemed to be an effort “to thwart the investigation into the cancer-research agency” -- and it shows he was "trying to scrap the ethics unit for other than his stated reason.""
