“One down, one to go,” Tony Buzbee, the lead attorney on Perry’s all star defense team, told the press on the court house steps today.
“This is a clear step towards victory for the rule of law. The only remaining count we believe to be a misdemeanor, and the only issue is whether the governor’s veto – or any veto in the absence of bribery – can ever be illegal. The appeals court made clear that this case was questionable. The remaining charge is hanging by a thread, and we are confident that once it is put before the court, it will be dismissed on its face.” – Tony Buzbee, Lead Counsel On Governor Perry’s Legal Team
