Rick Perry's PAC is selling mugshot T-shirtsRick Perry (Credit: Travis County Sheriff's Office)

Texas governor Rick Perry, who was indicted last week for allegedly abusing the powers of his office, is turning his legal woes into a fundraising opportunity — as any quick-thinking politician would. Perry’s political action committee, RickPAC, is now officially selling limited edition “Rick Perry mugshot” T-shirts. Get one today (or don’t) in exchange for a $25 contribution to aid Republican congressional candidates around the country.

The shirts, which feature a black-and-white reproduction of Perry’s now-infamous mugshot on the front, claim the governor is “Wanted (For securing the border and defeating Democrats).” On the back, the tees feature a second mugshot — that of Travis County Democratic District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, who was found guilty of drunk driving last year. When Lehmberg refused Perry’s calls to resign, the governor threatened to veto funding for state prosecutors to investigate corruption charges. He then carried out the veto, which is exactly why he is currently under indictment.

Shirts come in multiple sizes, but Perry’s mugshot probably will never look as good splayed across anyone’s chest as it does Ryan Gosling’s.
