Texas Gov. Rick Perry gave remarks Saturday on a state jury’s decision to indict him for abusing his vetoing power on Friday saying that he stands by his decision and would fight the indictment, which he called a political farce.
“We don’t settle political differences with indictments in this country,” Mr. Perry said. “It is outrageous that some would use partisan political theatrics to up away at the very fabric of our constitution.”
