    It might be hard to imagine after last week’s GOP presidential slugfest, but there was a time not too long ago when a group headed by Mitt Romney quietly—and a judge says illegally—helped Rick Perry’s political career in Texas and set the stage for his new nemesis to rise on the national stage.

    Known mostly by Texas political insiders, the allegations gleaned from court files have mostly escaped national attention as Romney and Perry quickly transform the 2012 GOP presidential nomination into an intense two-man race that has left other contenders like Michele Bachmann and Jon Huntsman in the rearview mirror.

    And what hasn’t emerged before are court files reviewed by The Daily Beast stating that Romney was personally aware of the origins of the $1 million donation from a Texas homebuilder at the heart of the controversy, and that he discussed it with Perry’s campaign aides.

    If true I wouldn't be surprised. These politicians all suck each others dicks, republican and democrat together.

    Interesting, but not relevant.

    Romney probably figured that he needed all the evangelical friends he could get if he was going to go toe to toe with Huckabee again, which was his operating theory up until the point earlier this year when Huckabee decided that would be too much fun.
