Rick Perry's Twitter 'Mishap'


(USA Today) Texas Governor Rick Perry found himself facing a Twitter mishap Sunday night. The official @GovernorPerry account sent out a tweet around 7:20 p.m. with a photo-shopped image of Travis County DA Rosemary Lehmberg. The tweet said, "I don't always drive drunk at 3 times the legal blood alcohol limit, but when I do I indict Governor Perry for calling me out about it. I am the most drunk democrat in Texas." The tweet was deleted shortly after it was posted.
