RickPAC Sells T-Shirt Featuring Gov. Perry’s Mugshot


Gov. Rick Perry’s smiling mugshot ricocheted across the internet last week – and now it’s on a T-shirt.

  RickPAC, the governor’s political action committee, is selling the shirt, which features Perry’s mugshot and says he’s “wanted” for “securing the border and defeating Democrats.” The back of the shirt features an earlier mugshot of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg. She had been arrested for drunken driving. The shirt says she’s “guilty” of “driving while intoxicated and perversion of justice.”

The shirt is yours for $25.

Or, for just $5, you can get a bumper sticker that says “#IStandWithRickPerry.”

Perry was indicted earlier this month on felony charges of abuse of power. Perry turned himself in last week in Travis County.
