Quotes

"This is an assault on the Constitution," Perry spokesman Felix Browne said. "We don't want it to be an assault on the taxpayers as well."
"The actions that I took were lawful, they were legal, and they were proper" Perry said, then added, "We will prevail, we will prevail."
"I wholeheartedly and unequivocally stand behind my veto," Perry said in a Saturday press conference. "I'll continue to defend this lawful action of my executive authority as governor. We don’t settle political differences with indictments in this country."
Indeed, said Dershowitz, McCrum's prosecution of Perry "is another example of the criminalization of party differences. This idea of an indictment is an extremely dangerous trend in America."
