Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s (R) political action committee is looking to literally profit off of the governor’s indictment.
With a $25 donation to RickPAC, supporters will receive a tee-shirt with Perry’s mugshot. The tees read, “WANTED (For securing the border and defeating Democrats).”
The back of the T-shirt features Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg. Perry was indicted for carrying out a threat to veto funding for the public integrity unit unless Lehmberg resigned following a drunk driving incident.
RickPAC raises funds to support “conservatives who will work to secure our nation’s border, reduce the debt for future generations, and – unlike so many in Washington – focus on achieving results.”
A spokesperson for Perry told the Wall Street Journal that the governor’s legal fees would be paid with campaign funds.
Perry has been using the indictment to bash Democrats for launching a political attack through the legal system. Before he entered the courthouse for his mugshot, Perry gave a fervent statement in which he vowed to “fight this injustice with every fiber of my being.”
