Part-Time Rick Perry has turned Texas government into a self-serving political machine.
An analysis showed Perry had squeezed his appointees for $17 million in campaign cash as of June, and now he has raised $790,000 more from appointees in the last three months.
With the Emerging Technology Fund, Perry funneled $16 million in taxpayer dollars to companies tied to his top campaign donors.
With the Texas Enterprise Fund, Perry handed out $35 million in taxpayer dollars to companies tied to his top campaign donors.
Perry abused the Teacher Retirement System as $6 million in fees were delivered to funds controlled by Perry campaign donors. Perry appointed a known gambler to head the TRS.
Texans deserve a governor who is working for us, not his friends and campaign donors. Perry’s corruption has also led him to believe that he doesn’t need to answer questions from Texans. The Austin American-Statesman slammed Rick Perry in an editorial cartoon focusing on the fact that in Rick Perry’s Texas, only some people are invited to the table.
