Rick Perry wasted nearly $3.8 million taxpayer dollars on airfare, baggage fees, food and even parking during his failed 160 day Presidential campaign.
Dear Rick Perry,
Thank you for coming back to Texas to do the job the people of Texas elected you to do in 2010. State Senator Mike Jackson was never elected to do the job you and Lt. Governor David Dewhurst required him to do. We notice that Texas taxpayers subsidized your failed and embarrassing 160-day campaign. With a massive budget shortfall and structural deficit looming for the next session, we know you agree taxpayer money should be used for its intended purpose.
Please pay back the estimated $3.8 million in taxpayer dollars you spent to run for president. We encourage you to pay it back with any means possible and suggest either using the $2.5 million in your campaign account or reimbursing the state retirement funds you are collecting while you simultaneously serve as Governor.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
