Perry Says Indictment is Attempt to Derail 2016 Bid

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) suggested that the felony indictment against him may be a plot to damage his potential campaign for president in 2016, Business Insider reports.

Said Perry: "I think over the course of the last 12 to 14 months, we have been thoughtfully engaged in helping candidates across the country. We've been successful in many of those places to help move the needle for those candidates. And the really hardcore left, they're not above sinking somebody's political or personal life, or block someone from being engaged in that type of activity. So the timing is suspect, to say the least."
