Facebook posts reveal highly-partisan activist Dem. sat on Grand Jury that indicted Perry

A juror who sat for four months on the grand jury that handed down a two-count indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Friday, admitted to the Houston Chronicle on Tuesday that she was an active member of the Democratic Party and had participated in its State Convention, at the same time as passing judgment on the state’s top Republican.

Moreover, Rho Chalmers attended, photographed and wrote about an event with Democratic State Sen. Kirk Wilson, who testified before that selfsame jury just one month before, mediatrackers.org reported.

Chalmers of course denied any bias in her decision-making process.


“For me, it’s not a political decision,” she explained to The Chronicle. “That’s what a grand jury is about – take the emotion out of it and look at the facts and make your best decision based on your life experience.”

But if your life experience includes bragging about your Democratic Party credentials at their State Convention on your Facebook page with accompanying photographs, attending an event which features a grand jury witness and posting it on a community Facebook page you’ve started, and serving on the Rules Committee of the Texas Democratic Party while still serving on the grand jury, then your objectivity may fairly be called into question.

Multiple posts from her personal Facebook site identify her as a proud Democratic activist, in addition to her “likes” for University Democrats, Central Austin Democrats, Black Austin Democrats, and South Travis United Democrats.

Perry’s lawyers will have a field day with these revelations and Ms. Chalmers may learn the hard way, that she should have recused herself from serving in this high stakes case.
