Perry uses government money to prop up private corporations by loaning government money back to businesses owned by folks who contribute to him. Plus, they get an extra bonus of a side-by-side equity investment. All of this is kept secret from the “investors” (the people) and it is touted as “job creation”.

How many other governors travel to the Bahamas to discuss education with his major campaign advisers/contributors. This just doesn’t pass the sniff test, like so many of the corrupt practices of his.

Perry’s travel, security costs will stay secret until after 2012.

The records, reported in 2005 by the Austin American-Statesman, showed that Perry and staff members had traveled the previous year to the Bahamas for a meeting with top campaign donor James Leininger, a supporter of public school vouchers and charter schools, his wife, and Grover Norquist, a national anti-tax advocate. The records showed $4,200 in taxpayer money was spent for the squad of six state troopers who went along, including costs for renting scuba gear, golf cars and cellphones, according to the newspaper.

In 2009, Perry traveled to Israel where he was given the “Defender of Jerusalem” award. According to a local television report, he and his wife flew first class at more than $5,000 per ticket, paid for by an energy company financier. Four security detail officers also went on the five-day trip at a cost of more than $70,000 to taxpayers. The expenses included $17,000 for rooms at the King David Hotel, nearly $13,000 for food and more than 350 hours in overtime pay.
