Perry: 'I Wear This Indictment As a Badge of Honor'
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry addressed his felony indictment tonight on "Hannity."
A Texas judge has denied a second request from Perry to dismiss the indictment, which stems from Perry's decision to cut state funding to Travis County DA Rosemary Lehmberg's office after she refused to resign following her DWI conviction.
"What I tell people is, I wear this as a badge of honor—standing up for the rule of law and the Constitution," he said.
Perry said the group that filed a complaint against him is politically motivated, but said that he has the Constitution on his side.
"I mean clearly the Constitution is on our side, and clearly the statutes are on our side," he said. "At the end of the day, we will be well served. I'm going to stand up for the people of this country and the rule of law."
Perry also discussed a possible 2016 presidential run, telling Sean Hannity that he will make an announcement about his decision in May or June.
