Governor Perry turns himself in for mug shot and fingerprints

Governor Perry appears at the Travis County Courthouse to by booked on two felony charges of abuse of office and coercion this afternoon. Perry talked to the boisterous crowd before going in, saying he's entering the courthouse with his head held high because the actions he took were lawful,legal and right. Perry is being accused of abuse of power and coercion, after he vetoed funds to the Public Intergrity Unit because DA Rosemary Lehmberg would not step down after her DWI arrest. Perry says the indictment is nothing short of an attack on the constitutional powers on the office of governor.
