In an ad featuring clips of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg's outrageous conduct during her 2013 drunken driving arrest, Gov. Rick Perry's federal political action committee defends Perry's veto of funding for the state's public integrity unit, which is housed in the Travis County DA's office.
