Rick Perry Mugshot

OOPS!!!

0819_Rick-Perry_mug

Texas Governor Rick Perry pursed his lips with a faint smile as he posed for his mug shot ... and the pic is a study in politics and spin control.

As you probably know ... Perry has been indicted for felony abuse of power ... trying to coerce a political enemy -- a D.A. who was convicted of drunk driving -- out of office by threatening to veto a law enforcement bill if she didn't resign. 

Perry -- who says the charges are BS -- has a lot at stake in this mug shot. He clearly wants to run for President in 2016, so the way he looks and dresses in the pic is critical. 

Nice suit, crisp white shirt, appropriate blue tie. The look is confident, defiant but not too smug. It's way better than James Brown's mug and on a par with Armie Hammer and Lindsay's 6th.  

Well done.

Total BS.
And I support his defiance.
He was just doing his job trying to get that DRUNK out of office. And to those who think this will be his demise. Think again. This, along with his strength shown on the border, shows everyone that he is not adverse to sticking to his guns.
Go Gov Rick!
This is your finest hour......

Flotsam    

Same on TMZ for misrepresenting this story!! Read the real story and it is obvious that this particular DA had no business being on an ethics committee. TMZ, this type of "reporting" is pathetic.

Good for him. The DA is a loser and it's a real shame that these cowards are using the legal system to attack political enemies. Communist f*cks.

He has overstayed his welcome in the state of Texas
unsure of political party affiliation In 1984, Perry was elected to the Texas House of Representatives as a Democrat from district 64
