So far we know that Rick Perry’s legal bill has topped $80,000 – and that’s just the beginning. The high dollar attorneys he has hired charge a minimum of $450/hour and the clock will be ticking for months.
Now that Rick Perry has been indicted on two felony counts for threatening and attempting to bribe an elected official, Texans deserve to know why they are being forced to cover the costs for Perry’s criminal defense - which could ultimately total hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars.
Abbott Voted Against Rape Victim in Strikingly Similar Lawsuit
A story aired last night by WFAA Channel 8 in Dallas contains details frighteningly similar to the facts laid out in a political ad released yesterday by the Wendy Davis campaign. The ad centers on a lawsuit in which Greg Abbott aligned himself with a corporation against a woman who had been brutally raped in her own home.
Campaign Frantically Plans to Bus In Outside Supporters
It’s no secret that Greg Abbott has been having real trouble generating support from Hispanic voters, particularly Texans who live near our border.
In fact, he's frightened by even the notion of facing fair-minded Texans who live in our border region. That's why he refused to allow a live audience at his debate with Wendy Davis on September 19th in McAllen. Abbott fears the reaction of a live audience as he tries to defend a record of hostility to Hispanic Texans.

The term “deadbeat” is used to describe adults who don’t fulfill their obligation to kids. Greg Abbott’s failure to fulfill his responsibility to help provide a good public education to Texas kids makes him the state’s biggest deadbeat.
As Texans prepare to celebrate Labor Day – honoring those who've fought for the American ideal of a fair day's pay for a fair day's work – there's new evidence that Greg Abbott's work for the people of Texas isn't his top priority.
Greg Abbott spends less time on official business here in Texas than the Queen of England does conducting her royal duties from Buckingham Palace.
