This is the footage of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg’s arrest.

She was busted for drunk driving on April 12, 2013. She denied that she was driving drunk.

There was an open bottle of vodka in Lehmberg’s car on the night of her arrest, in violation of the state’s open container law.

In the video, Lehmberg taunts the arresting officers and even threatens them. One of the officers describes action that took place off camera, in which Lehmberg kicked doors and acted violently.

Lehmberg pleaded guilty to drunk driving, but refused to resign as Travis County DA. She remains the DA to this day.

The Travis County DA’s office, incredibly, runs the Public Integrity Unit — which has statewide jurisdiction.

Gov. Perry’s veto threat concerned that office, and restoring its image after Lehmberg’s arrest and refusal to step down.

Perry has been indicted by a special prosecutor answering to Lehmberg, for trying to restore the Public Integrity Unit’s image.

Taping what happens in a police station during the booking procedure is quite common. It protects both the suspect and the police department.

She needs no help in humiliating herself.

IMO, Ms. Lehmberg is a disgrace to her office, the legal profession, the citizens and State of Texas. She is a sorry example of her party's morality, demonstrating her belief the laws and ethics are not to be applied to "elites" such as herself. May she and her "friends" fail in their continuing efforts to bring Texas and our Nation down to their level!

This is a sign of a relatively new trend, weaponization of government.

EPA - gone from being overzealous to harassment and punishment of private citizens

OSHA - Same

IRS - Same

Criminal Indictments for political purposes - D'Souza and now Perry.

One wonders who far the leftists will go.

One wonders what it will take for the Republican Party to get a sense what it is up against.

One wonders if the collective media will ever have its moment of moral clarity, or whether it will ride the leftist bandwagon all the way to destruction.

I can't believe she drank Ciroc, promoted by P-Diddy, when one of the best vodkas in the world, Tito's, is made right in Austin. And Tito's is half the price of Ciroc. Bad decisions by Rosemary all the way around.

Austin, the San Francisco of Texas. It's a whole nother country.

A few good restaurants, lots of bars, lots of bands and clubs, very liberal university. The worst traffic in Texas.

And that's why you can't give Democrats any political power. Five minutes later, they're abusing it for their own ends.

I think is just wonderful that the Texas Democrat Party is hitching their political wagon to this plugged toilet of a DA. About the only thing this indictment will accomplish is to make Rosemary Lehmberg nationally famous for being a sloppy drunk driver.

First the totalitarian socialists incite racial hatred in Ferguson, MO in a transparent effort "to get out the vote" in Black communities.

Then they indict a sitting Republican governor in an effort to "kneecap" him, should he decide to run for President.

And we are still 2 months away from the 2014 mid-terms. Wait till Obama executes his coup by ruling by decree...

".. but refused to resign as Travis County DA. She remains the DA to this day."

Of course! The nomenklatura figure they OWN the job, and it has everything to do with ego, not "civil service" ("Civil Servants- no longer civil, and no long servants" - Winston Churchill)
