Governor Perry Awarded State Funds To Big Campaign Donor In Way Outside Of Normal Process

Texas Governor Rick Perry awarded $4.5 million in taxpayer money to a top campaign donor in a way outside of normal state procedures.

From the Dallas Morning News

“Gov. Rick Perry acknowledged Wednesday that he has a “nice, close personal relationship” with a major campaign donor whose company was awarded $4.5 million in state technology funds despite its failure to win approval from a regional screening board.  Perry was responding to disclosures this week by The Dallas Morning News that the award from the Emerging Technology Fund to Convergen did not follow the normal reviewing track. Although Convergen’s application for funds was not recommended by a regional board, it was allowed to proceed for approval to a statewide advisory committee appointed by Perry.”

Click the above link and read the story. See what you think. I’m a ideological partisan, but I feel the case can be made that Rick Perry has been in office for too long and that he does not put the best interests of Texans first.
