Rick Perry O Day- 8/18/2015

Because wearing glasses doesn't make you smarter. Rick Perry says women already get equal pay. hah. Doesn't want laws guaranteeing equal pay "jumbling up our code"

Broke Ole Second Tier Rick Perry Saved by Super Pacs?

..the news that Perry-supporting super PACs are taking on core campaign functions arguably signals the boldest move a candidate has taken in expanding the open relationship between a super PAC and a campaign committee.

“I don’t think there’s any precedent,” says Larry Noble of the Campaign Legal Center. He, like many other FEC-watchers, is fairly certain that the FEC won’t take any action on this latest expansion of super-PAC power. And if Opportunity and Freedom successfully brings Perry to the top of the GOP heap while his campaign is on life support, it will set a new benchmark for how campaigns are run. “The history of campaign-finance law is when the bar is lowered and they get away with it,” Noble says. “Everybody starts feeling like they need to be doing it.”

What that means is that the already-flimsy wall between candidates and the big-money billionaires who are pouring money into super-PAC coffers will effectively disintegrate. If super PACs are doing more campaign-like activities, it makes sense that the billionaires who are funding those activities will have an outsized say in how they are carried out.

Rick Perry's Freedom of Speech as a Governor- And His Felony Indictment Have thought off and on about how one of the charges against Rick Perry was dismissed recently. Came across this from the Volokh Conspiracy in the Washington Post from last year. 

A preeminent purpose of the First Amendment is to guarantee free and unfettered political discussion within government and among the citizenry. Consequently, those who enter the political arena are fair game for sharp attacks inflicted by both the electorate and the elected. The hurly-burly world of courthouse politics is an arena where robust debate, often accompanied by blunt, caustic and even intemperate and vituperative language, is the by-product of public officials clashing over divisive issues. However, as long as the means are peaceful and their actions lawful, the boundaries of their political debate cannot be measured for constitutional protection by conventional standards of acceptability.

Freedom of speech must encompass the liberty of elected officials to discuss matters of public concern without prior restraint or fear of punishment. A vague statute that potentially could punish protected political debate violates due process because of its chilling effect on the exercise of that essential right.
