    Texas GOP Gov. Rick Perry after being indicted this weekend got support Saturday from one of the country's most powerful Democrats-- former President Obama political adviser David Axelrod-- who tweeted that the charge seems "sketchy."

    Perry, a 2012 GOP presidential candidate with potential 2016 aspirations, was indicted Friday for allegedly abusing his veto power during a dispute with a public-corruption prosecutor over her drunken driving arrest.

    The indictment claims Perry broke the law when he threatened to veto $7.5 million over two years for the public integrity unit run by the office of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, after she pleaded guilty to drunken driving in April 2013 and refused to resign.

    "Unless he was demonstrably trying to scrap the ethics unit for other than his stated reason, Perry indictment seems pretty sketchy," Axelrod tweeted.

    Alexrod joined Texas’ junior Sen. Ted Cruz on Saturday in giving his support to Perry, while other high-profile lawmakers have largely remained silent on the politically-charge issue.

    Sketchy does not mean innocent nor does it mean guilty.

    I have been thinking about this throughout the day. Dershowitz is a horrible person yet he says that this indictment by this drunken lawyer is un-American. Why? It deals with Democrat politics. What goes around comes around. If Democrats are going to try to have political prisoners in prison, then Democrats will go to prison in large numbers in 2016 because they have a great deal of criminality in their administration in the federal government.
