The strange indictment of Rick Perry

DeRoy Murdock:
The abuse-of-power indictment against Governor Rick Perry (R., Texas) is beyond bizarre. Prosecuting a governor for threatening a veto is like charging a Labrador for retrieving a Frisbee. For both species, this penalizes innate behavior.
There is much more.

Murdock looks at the Texas constitution and finds it "Windex clear"  on the Governor's veto power.  One of the traditions in exercising that power is to tell legislators beforehand what the objections are and the conditions needed to make the bill acceptable.  To attempt to criminalize that conduct is ridiculous on its face.
