The caption under Perry’s mug shot says he’s “wanted” for “securing the border and defeating Democrats.” Lehmberg’s side says she’s “wanted” for “driving while intoxicated and perversion of justice.”
Perry has aggressively targeted Lehmberg after he was indicted on felony charges one week ago. Perry is being accused of abusing his office by threatening to veto funding for a state-level, Lehmberg-led public integrity unit after her arrest — unless she resigned. Perry has said Lehmberg’s arrest gave him justification to push her out of office.
It should be noted, however, that a special prosecutor, Michael McCrum, is pressing the felony charges against Perry.
