The new T-shirt.   (RickPAC)

(Newser) – Rick Perry not only thinks the abuse-of-power charges against him are a joke, he's reveling in them. His Super PAC, RickPAC, is now selling $25 T-shirts featuring the Texas governor's police mugshot, reports ABC News. The text reads that he's a "wanted" man "for securing the border and defeating Democrats." On the back of the shirt is the mugshot of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, who is at the center of his legal troubles, notes the Washington Post. (Perry is accused of pressuring her to resign over DWI charges, and then following through on a threat to veto funds for a public-corruption unit she led when she refused.) Her caption reads that she's wanted for "driving while intoxicated and perversion of justice." You can order the shirts here. (Even some of Perry's critics agree that the charges are a reach.)

Geez, guys. I didn't know there was a Rick Perry Defense Fund t-shirt. I wonder how many will be worn/sold/given away at the GOP National Convention?
