CNN - Texas Gov. Rick Perry indicted

"Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, was indicted Friday on charges relating to his efforts to try and force a local district attorney to resign.

A Travis County grand jury handed up the charges.

The two counts against Perry, a Republican, stem from his threat to veto funding for a public integrity unit run by the DA, who had been arrested on a drunk driving charge."
