Perry's state office has hired a lawyer
Austin — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; a judge on Monday seated a grand jury to look into the threat that Gov. Rick Perry carried out to veto funding for the Public Integrity Unit under Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg.
Perry last year said he would veto money for the unit, which prosecutes wrongdoing by public officials, unless Lehmberg resigned in the wake of a drunken-driving arrest.
