How Rick Perry Got Rich While Working Government Jobs - Conor Friedersdorf, The Atlantic - NationalJournal.com



Perry bought another 10 acres of undeveloped land in 1993. That property drew interest from Michael Dell, a computer magnate who needed Perry's tract to connect his new home to municipal sewer lines. Dell took the property off Perry's hands for $465,000, more than triple what Perry had paid for it two years earlier. Perry reported a $342,994 profit on the sale in his 1995 tax return.

Texas Democrats have repeatedly questioned the sale over the years, in part because Mike Toomey - an influential lobbyist who would later become Perry's chief of staff - closed the deal for Perry while Perry was out of town. Perry has always maintained he didn't know that the land would be so valuable to Dell when he purchased the property.

Here's another example:




Perry purchased the land from state Sen. Troy Fraser, R-Horseshoe Bay, in 2001 for $314,770. Six years later, Perry sold it for $1.1 million, pulling a profit of $823,776. Perry has attributed the gain to a favorable market for Hill Country land. "We bought a piece of property, the property appreciated and we sold it," Perry said last year.

That remains to be seen. If he profited from his official position as the article indicates (rather than simply luck or skill), then yes, he definitely did rob from his constituents.

This is surely a showstopper for Perry.

He's rich.

Totally unelectable.

TM - do us a favor and STFU with your stupidity already. Seriously.

I will never shut up for the likes of you.

Where did I say anything about rich=bad?

Once just fucking once talk a little substance.

Try to scrape a few of your remaining brain cells back off your beard and shove them back in your ear and see if you can kick start them mmmkay.

The funny thing is I doubt you even look anything like this brainceased guy in the picture.

I ( reguardless of you little ruse) see you more like a plus size Carl Rove.

in 2001, I bought a piece of property in Connecticut for $165,000 and sold it 2 years later for $280,000. Am I a corrupt politician?

So I will take that as a no that you can not scrape enough brain cells fof your beard or that you could not get them in your ear and or they did not restart.

Why dont you just have another cheese cake and admire your Rovian beauty as it grows.
