A grand jury in Austin, Texas has indicated that Rick Perry, a governor for Texas is now being investigated for public corruption. The reason for this is because Governor Perry is opposed to legalizing online gambling and he has threaten to veto gambling funding for the state if he absolutely must have to. No governor in the United States of America has made this kind of threat before, people have believed that Mr. Perry is paid handsomely to keep his stance of not legalizing online gambling.
The state of Texas has now appointed a unique prosecutor who has more than enough talent to handle this investigation and anyone who tries to bribe him from prosecuting the Governor. Michael McCrum is the special prosecutor and will begin finding evidence to support his claims immediately.
Texans for Public Justice, an action group that sets out to have the rights of the public be heard were the ones who made a series of complaints against the governor. The spokesman for the Texans of Public Justice, Craig McDonald spoke to reporters saying, “We’re pleased that the grand jury determined that the governor’s bullying crossed the line into illegal behavior. The complaint had merit; serious laws were potentially broken.”
If Governor Rick Perry is fined to be guilty he will be sent to jail and face serious jail time for abusing his powers. This will result in one less government official trying to fight against online gambling legalization. This could end up being a big step towards the future of legalized online gambling in the United States of America.
