Rick Perry Apologizes, Deletes Tweet About ‘Drunk’ DA
Texas Governor Rick Perry quickly deleted a Tweet where he referred to a district attorney as “the most drunk Democrat in Texas.”
A picture of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, modeled after Dos Equis’ “Most Interesting Man in the World” ad campaign, was tweeted from the verified “@GovernorPerry” account on Sunday. “I don’t always drive drunk at 3x the legal blood alcohol limit… …but when I do, I indict Gov. Perry for calling me out about it. I am the most drunk Democrat in Texas,” the tweet read, the Houston Chronicle reported.
The tweet was deleted shortly after, and Perry sent out an apology.
“A tweet just went out from my account that was unauthorized. I do not condone the tweet and I have taken it down,” the follow-up tweet read.[su_sky_ad]
