Brent Budowsky over at The Hill has quite a provocative headline up: “Rick Perry = Rod Blagojevich.”
But his story goes beyond that headline to argue that Rick Perry>Rod Blagojevich, asserting that Perry makes Blagojevich “look like an amateur” when it comes to pay-for-play fundraising.
He claims, “I hear national reporters are all over Texas right now” to expose campaign contributions from companies that got state funds and individuals who got state jobs.
I assume Karl Rove is delighted to take those reporters to the rock pile and watch as they turn them over.
So will it be White House or Big House? Don’t mess with Texas, but especially don’t mess with Rove.
