The knives come out for Perry

The Texas Tribune digs in to the money source for Perry’s extensive travel, most of which comes from campaign funds.

Gov. Rick Perry has been burning up the miles since he won re-election last year. He is on track to have made nearly 50 stops in 21 states by November.

He has been on a book tour. He has been the top pitchman for the Lone Star State’s friendly business climate and an unabashed poacher of jobs from other states. Also, as leader of the Republican Governors Association, he has traveled the country to help Republican candidates for governor.

All that travel is not cheap. But it is unclear exactly how much it costs.

Ooooh. Let’s tear him down any way we can
