Politics surrounding former Texas governor Rick Perry.

For those who don't know and who don't remember, back in late August 2014 former Texas governor Rick Perry was indicted by a grand jury on felony charges for abuse of power by misappropriating, abusing, and misusing funds. Texas Republicans and Texas Democrats are highly focused on Rick Perry's indictment.

Lawyers and judges are tied together on this long standing court case battle against former Texas governor Rick Perry. This abuse of power court case has stalled his career as Texas State governor as it came to an end by the end of the fiscal year of 2014. Rick Perry's lawyers filed to have his charges dismissed. The defense motion to view a grand jury testimony is currently pending. He still has to face to charges that are filed for his indictment in the Supreme Court of Texas. A first motion to quash indictment has been overruled by a judge from the Supreme Court of Texas in January 2015.

Just an update! Rick Perry has been indicted for his charges handed tom him by the Supreme Court of Texas since February 2015. He has now stepped down from his position of Texas Governor. These indictments and charges are now official. The news has extensively covered this news topic. In other words, he is no longer the governor of Texas.
