cnn.com – (CNN) — A state district judge in Texas has denied a defense motion to have two felony charges dismissed against outgoing Gov. Rick Perry. Perry’s defense argued the indictment should have been voided over questions regarding the validity of the oath of office taken by the special prosecutor in the case, Michael McCrum, as well as other paperwork technicalities. The governor’s legal team argued that McCrum incorrectly took the oath of office when McCrum was sworn in as special prosecutor in August 2013, and thus, McCrum’s work over the past 15 months should be considered invalid.
