Texas Gov. Rick Perry got booked Tuesday after being indicted last week.
The charges — abuse of power and coercion of a public official — stem from his decision to veto funding for a county program. Perry cut off the state funding for a public integrity unit after the district attorney who runs it refused to resign, following her conviction for drunk driving. Perry has called the charges a “farce.”
