Rick Perry Pleads Not Guilty

The only thing he's guilty of is snatching the opportunity to get some free press.


Texas Gov. Rick Perry has pleaded "not guilty" on two felony charges that he abused his power, the San Antonio Express-News reports. He was indicted last Friday.

The governor has also waived his arraignment, which had been set for Friday.

Perry turned himself in Tuesday afternoon to be booked and have his mug shot taken at the Travis County Justice Center. In a news conference after his booking, he called the felony counts "baseless political charges."
