Texas Taxpayers Pony Up Part of Cost for *World Leader* 39 Percent Perry's Boondoggle Middle East Gala Trip

29 June 2007 at 9:57:08 AM

Sheesh. It isn't bad enough that Rick Perry has NO scruples against accepting freebie trips while he is governor from private interests.. to the tune of *ESTIMATED* $18,500 per person (who knows how much it will actually be) that includes him, his wife and Phil Wilson. But apparently WE help pay, through the Texas Department of Public Safety, for Perry's security detail. How much does THAT cost?

The mission is meant to promote partnerships and joint ventures in homeland security, gas and oil, biotech and financial services, the Web site said, and to recognize those who have made the world "a better place."

The company, which selected Perry for a "Friend of Zion" award, has previously organized similar missions and presented the award to other high-profile figures. Perry has cited a "special kinship" between Texas and Israel.

Katsof's Web site says his company develops investment banking relationships through its global network of contacts.

Disgusting. Adding that Pink Dome talks about Perry and Republican hypocrisy. If the Texas Republican party's platform is that the US is a Christian nation, and Perry panders heavily to that, is he trying to mend bridges with Jews before he runs for office? Shameless.
