Rick Perry may no longer be the governor of Texas, but he’s still very much in the legal spotlight in the Lone Star State…and still moving ahead with plans for a possible 2016 presidential run.

That indictment, which Perry claims amounts to the “criminalization of politics,” was filed after the then-governor pulled state funding from a county district attorney after her refusal to leave office following a drunk-driving conviction.
In an appearance on “Hannity” Wednesday night, Perry told the Fox News host that he’s not worried about the indictment and wears it as a “badge of honor,” saying the Constitution will ultimately protect him.
