Texas Justice, With Impunity

I’m sure you all remember about the mess of money-grubbing and fancy pants horse thievery going on with the Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Republican Sid ByGawd Miller.

Ole Sid is using taxpayer money to fund his rodeo addiction, overeating, and weird-butt pain relievers.

The [Houston] Chronicle reported that Miller had spent $1,120 in taxpayer money on the February 2015 trip to Oklahoma and that his office had said the trip was for meetings that in reality never took place. The Chronicle also reported that Miller had used state and campaign money on a trip to Mississippi in which he competed in a rodeo and won $880 in prize money.

He also charged the taxpayers for his “Jesus shot” painkiller in Oklahoma.

Well ….

The Travis County District Attorney’s Office has begun reviewing the findings of a criminal investigation into Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller’s travel, a top prosecutor said Friday.

“We received the investigation (from the Texas Department of Public Safety) earlier this week,” said the prosecutor, Gregg Cox, the head of Travis County’s Public Integrity Unit. “It is under review.”

Here’s how this works. He gets indicted. He screams that the “liberal” Travis County DA is picking on him. He goes to trial. He loses. He screams that the liberal Travis County jury did this awful thing to him because he loves Jesus. He appeals. The conservative appeals court grants the appeal after about 3 years. Meanwhile, Sid stays in office because he’s a conservative legend because liberals are picking on him.

And that right there is Texas justice!
