SCANDAL-SCARRED TEXAS GOVERNOR TO RAISE MONEY FOR PALMETTO “REPUBLICANS”
Embattled Texas Gov. Rick Perry is traveling to early-voting South Carolina next week to raise money for the Palmetto State’s “Republican” Party.
Perry – indicted last week on corruption charges in the Lone Star State – will appear at a party fundraiser at the First Citizens Cafe in downtown Columbia on Wednesday April 27. The event begins with a “photo line” at 5:30 p.m. EDT – at least for those who pay $100 toward the GOP “victory” efforts.
Everyone else must pay $25 to attend a 6:00 p.m. “tailgate” in honor of the August 28 showdown between the No. 9 University of South Carolina Gamecocks and the No. 20 Texas A&M Aggies.
Perry is a Texas A&M alumnus.
As Perry’s national star has ascended in recent months, FITS has been tracking some troubling reports out of his home state regarding corporate cronyism (reports tangentially related to his recent indictment).
We knew from the 2012 election that Perry was a corporate crony “Republican,” but we had no idea the extent of his reliance on government subsidies to “create jobs” and sustain his political fundraising machine.
To read our recent report on all that, CLICK HERE.
For those of you with short memories, Perry was the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination in September 2011 … but by January 2012 had dropped out of the race, endorsing the candidacy of another liberal “Republican” – Newt Gingrich.
@fitsnews is sober to much to ask for?

Now that Perry has an arrest record, my money says he’s be the next Newt Gingrich for the SC primary.
Which will be his new theme song from Buddy Holly?
1- That’ll Be The Day
2- Maybe Baby
3- Rave On
4- Think It Over
5- It’s So Easy
6- Real Wild Child
Is the the GNR version of Its So Easy?
Even though he doesn’t sport the glasses, how about Bobby Fuller?
Great video, great song! Fuller could really play that guitar.
Did you notice the girl to the right of the stage at the beginning flailing her arms around?!? That has to be the (unintentionally) worst dancing I’ve ever seen
Gotta love the chick on the left with no bra though.
He only owns one 45 and the “b side” is Lay Down Sally
Has he gotten permission from the DA to travel outside the state?? Stay away Mr. Perry.. You went into office a pauper and are now a millionaire. We don’t need you to do that on the national stage..
pResident Obama is allowed to travel all over the country, why not Perry?
Obama hasn’t been indicted yet.
Obama hasn’t been indicted PERIOD!
If Obama was indicted I would ask the same thing, as far as the corrupt crony funds go.. He is the same as Perry both are the scourge of the earth. The people don’t matter only the contributors. There is one significant difference—one has a D and one has an R.. See my avatar for my views on the two parties..
Is he fleeing to SC on the lam?
— perhaps to hook up with T-Rav?
Once you’ve been exposed to coke with/on hookers it’s hard to kick the habit.
Birds of a feather…
heh! heh! – probably hacked by Coach Dabo….
SC gives amnesty to Republicans all the time. You can do no wrong here…right, Sanford, T-Rav?
Don’t worry John Boy. The New Black Panthers and ISIS just haven’t announced their fundraising schedule for South Carolina’s democrats. They are busy in Ferguson.
For some people, being stupid is hard work, for you it seems to come naturally.
Thanks for comments, I was starting to feel ignored…party on, Sweets, party on…
Did I say something wrong? Been more outrage from liberal/socialists about the police in Ferguson protecting the citizens and businesses than about ISIS ‘beheading’ an American.
Attorney General Eric Holder supported and defended the New Black Panthers.
Democrats frankly just don’t like America very much. Look who they elect.
Do you get orgasmic when giving yourself a thumbs up?
Love it when you talk like that!
Did I say something wrong?
Have you said something right?
Put your head back up your ass where it belongs.
Sandi Moraless..The Haley Troll.
Dont worry your goddess Haley is not done whoring for the Koch brothers.
Yeah, hold on their John Boy – T-Rav is running as a independent. No major Republicans have signed on to support his felonious ass.
Point taken, but he sure as hell isn’t going to run as a Democrat in this state.
LOL That is pretty good!
I am surprised someone as smart as you has not commented on why most democrats nationally are even calling this indictment a farce?
They know if they get Perry it will make it much easier to INDICT muslim Obama on corruption charges early next year. Hell with impeachment.
A conviction of Perry for the ‘veto’ would set ‘legal precedent’. Ever heard of it? :-)
For Texas maybe.
Perry was in SC three years ago when he announced his run for the 2012 presidential nomination. Has he learned his lesson?
“liberal “Republican” – Newt Gingrich.”
Has fits stupidity become so commonplace that we no longer notice?
He is a crony capitalist authoritarian like the majority of Repubs out there. Don’t think stupidity is the proper word,
crony capitalist authoritarian = liberal?
When misusing my money and spending like there is no tomorrow. (His views on supposed National Security require huge amounts of cash) Yeah liberal.. Fiscally he is liberal. Morally he is no better than T-Rav and Sanford whom most of the repubs despise. And if liberals aren’t authoritarians with their laws (which Repubs have the same mindset only is the opposite direction) then I don’t know who is.. yeah the term applies.
That must be why so many self identified liberals support Gingrich. ;-)
No it is called Statism.. Something which SC is proud of and also the supposed hardcore repubs in this state are no more fiscally conservative than Harry Reid or Nancy friggin Pelosi, they just want to waste money in a different way.And constitutionally they are no different than Obama. Different cheeks of the same ass.
Rick Perry Coming To South Carolina
Don’t we have an extradition treaty with Y
Texans are fascinated with the antebellum south.
Pretty much everyone agrees that indictment is trash.
He knows where to start for mindless support. SC.
Why? SC doesn’t care.
Well, at least visiting this site I get to look at the little pretty in the russiadatingonline ad. Where the hell did that come from.
‘ the little pretty in the russiadatingonline ad’ DAMN – I believed that ad was for only ME..!!
What possible chance does this ass clown think he has to win the GOP nomination…let alone the presidency? Not in a million years will he win, even without being indicted on Federal charges. He’s wasting his time and somebody else’s money.
Perry is a joke, I am sure him and the SC tea party dopes get along quite well.
