Rick Perry Tweets, Then Deletes, ‘Drunk’ Picture of Texas Democrat


Last night, the official Twitter account of Governor Rick Perry posted a photo taking a shot at the Texas Democrat at the heart of Perry’s indictment and veto scandal. Rosemary Lehmberg was arrested for DUI last year, and Perry threatened not to fund the Travis County Public Integrity Unit unless she resigned.

She did not, Perry delivered on his veto threat, and Perry got indicted as a result.

Which brings us to this tweet from Perry’s account last night:

It got noticed enough to catch the attention of plenty of Twitter users, but it was quickly taken down and Perry posted this tweet next.

And, of course, Twitter had fun with it.
