Perhaps Now Slick Rick Should Also be Indicted for Criminal Libel

From the ever-so-Republican-leaning Houston Chronk:

A tweet mischaracterizing Gov. Rick Perry’s indictment was sent Sunday evening from his personal account, setting the social network abuzz and leaving his critics fuming. A few hours later, the message was deleted, with his account calling it “unauthorized.”

Unauthorized, eh?

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Lehmberg did not indict Perry. She and other officials in solidly Democratic Travis County recused themselves from the case against Perry. Bert Richardson, a Republican judge from Bexar County, appointed San Antonio lawyer Michael McCrum to serve as a special prosecutor. McCrum brought forth charges against Perry, and on Aug. 15, a Travis County grand jury handed up an indictment alleging Perry abused his official capacity and coerced a public servant.

Although the tweet came from Perry’s personal account — as opposed to the ones run by his staff — it was unclear Sunday evening whether he actually sent it out. The governor was reportedly preoccupied working the crowd at McLane Stadium in Waco as Baylor’s football team played its first game there.

At this point the only question remaining is: Will Fox ‘News’ will let its viewers decide whether or not Slick Rick was wearing a tan suit while (allegedly) not authorizing the tweet while at the game?
