      Attorneys for Texas Gov. Rick Perry say they don't know when he will be booked on abuse of power charges - but that it won't happen in secret.

      Houston-based defense Tony Buzbee said Monday that he will head Perry's high-powered legal team. The Republican and longest-serving governor in Texas history has been indicted on two felony counts.

      Buzbee said the governor is "going to let everyone know" when he will be booked, fingerprinted and have his mug shot taken. Perry's attorneys and a special prosecutor are still working that out.

      Buzbee also dismissed the case as "nothing more than banana republic politics."
