"Gov. Perry (R-TX) Sex Scandal Brewing"


          

from a friend

Dear friends,

It is rare that I pass on political gossip, but I have now heard this from 3 sources (2 of which I find HIGHLY credible).

Source #1: "I attended a political meeting this morning at which it was reported that Governor Perry's wife has left the Governor's Mansion in Austin. The alleged reason was that she found the governor in bed with another man. If true, discussions of gay issues are likely to take a higher profile in Texas in the coming weeks."

Source #2: "I did not want to say anything until it hit the mainstream press, but I have known about that for more than a week."

Source #3: "...the rumors about Perry and Secretary of State Connor (the alleged paramour) have been "swirling" since January. The governor's office is being very evasive."

For photos of the paramour go to http://www.sos.state.tx.us/about/sosbio.shtml

I remember reading Texas Observor stories on him, how one republican Congresswoman had a crush on him and she wrote these steamy novels with the masculine hero being a strong facsimile of Guv. Goodhair. Haww! Haww! This ought to be plenty good dirty fun!!

This IS a scandal! Maybe not a sex scandal.

Everyone knows that by now Mrs. Perry should have been run over by driverless car that was accidently left in drive.

Someone better get with the program!

I too heard this rumor the other day, and thought about posting it, but didn't want to without any corroboration. The person I heard it from is a lawyer with some pretty good connections.

Woo Hoo! Is all I gotta say. I can't wait for it to hit the mainstream. Those tight ass repubs who up until now have been saying what a great governor this jerk is are going to have to really pinch their noses closed to vote for him again...and on the other hand, it'll be a lot of fun to see them trying to get him out and finding a replacement to run on the repub side against him next election cycle.

Man, oh man, with monkey boy looking like the asshole he is and now his buddy Perry really coming out and looking like a butt buddy, the elections here in Texas are going to be a lot more fun.

It was just bringing our collective little heads down in the great fun-loving U S of A having to think about all that stuff like invading a sovereign nation under false pretenses, and lying about weapons of mass destruction, and questions about intelligence before 9/11, and our good buds the Pakistanis selling off nuclear technology, and civil liberties and stuff .... it's, like, sooooo boring, and real complicated to follow.

Thank god we have sex scandals and who said what to whom and 30-year-old National Guard stories to save us from this dull stuff.

I'll be odd woman out here, but I'd really prefer if the scandal were about the horrific way Governor Goodhair used the Texas Legislature to get Tom Delay's redistricting done. I guess that isn't quite as juicy.

I'd prefer that too but it's not going to happen. Things like invading other countries on false pretenses are so, like, complicated. But one thing the American people and the American media can understand and relish is pointing a finger and saying "See him? He's a faggot!"

At this point, whatever gets the fascists out of office is fine by me.

The republicans are pushing for an amendment banning civil unions between gays. And that is discrimination.

If this is true, what will the guv and the sec do in order to get consenting marriage protection under the law? And are theses two just self loathing people like Roy Cohn?

Sometimes in fishing, you got to chum the fish up. Chum consists of fish guts, heads, tails, blood and everything else nasty. If it gets the voters energized, we can get a prybar in and work on the big issues you just cited. Without an interested voter base, we are rudderless.

Whatever it takes to unmask these hypocritical a$$holes. You don't need to partake in it. Policy is, of course, the important thing. But we can't be playing by a different set of rules. Yeah, it makes us all culpable to a degree, but we can dust off and be serious once we send this crowd back to Texas, or prison.

for eight long years, I agree. But only on the intelectual level. As those who have posted before, I say have at 'em and this is why...

I have found people give all sorts of reasons why they vote for a particular candidate. They claim it is about issues but, the reality of the situation is they will only vote on issues that directly effect them personally.....

Most of the peole who vote make a selection based on visceral instinct. They like the man, they think he is honest, they feel he is on my side....

That is why personal attacks work so well....

The GOP knew that Clinton had control of the issues. The only way they could defeat his agenda was to undermine the messanger.....

Then people start to think that the person under attack for cheating on his wife can't be trusted in other areas of his life.....

Look at how they campaigned against the Estate Tax. It morphed into the death tax and made people of modest means truly believe that IRS agents would be hovering behind tombstones at the graveyard ready to suck the paltry sum of money left behind by the dearly departed.

I don't know how many people that I deal with tax wise suddenly became interested in Estate Planning when the Death Tax debate started. And none of them came close to being effected by the Estatee Tax...

so there you have it. A concrete example of how the GOP deflects attention away from their elitist agenda by making every issue into an emotional battle.....

... full force.

But I still lament that this is what it always comes down to. We gain short-term victories with it, but the real issues--the ones that really need to be addressed--live on beyond the individuals who get trounced. In other words, we win the battle, but the war just keeps going on and on and on.

Destroying Governor Perry over this scandal does not insure a Democrat will land in the governor's mansion in Texas next time. It just insures the voters won't trust a guy with fancy hair.

Plus, as good Democrats, we can't go around saying nyah nyah he's a fag; what a hypocrite. It'll make us look like hypocrites (except on the fidelity issue), and it kills our own message. Hell, The O.C. already did this plot in early December ... you know, where the rich jock finds his dad French kissing his business partner at the Lexus dealership they own. And all of Orange County ends up really glad the guy can be himself at last, and the horrified son ends up respecting him. (We lose track of the wife who's been cheated on.)

Watch for all the sympathy for this guy from the Pubs. Suddenly, George W. Bush will be on the cover of the Advocate.

Even if the pukes spin this perry scandal and support him, it will still be funny as hell to watch. We need some comic relief. And besides that, more in the media and elsewhere will realize what hypocrites these republicans are. I really think the media in general is on to the pukes more than they let on.

I'm not going after perry to bash gays - i think being gay mostly comes down to genetics, except for some who choose homosexuality or bisexuality - but over the hypocrisy issue.

The same sorts of rumors have been going around about Lindsay Graham (R-SC) for years. There was even one that the BFFE was going to out him before his Senate campaign as revenge for supporting McCain in the 2000 primaries. It didn't happen. They'll find a way to quell the Gov. Goodhair rumors, just as they did for that sanctimonious twerp Graham. If not, the minions will just put their fingers in their ears, and squint their eyes shut, and say loudly, "La la la la la...."

Yep. He was my so-called representative at one time, sad to say. I moved about 15 miles east a couple of years before he went to the Senate, and I wound up in another district. My current so-called rep. is not much better, although no rumors about his sexuality. He's a jerk, too. Got one of those occasional mailings that remind us of his existence. which I never received from Graham, BTW. He had one of those "check the three most important issues" cards in his last one. It had everything on it except the jobs issue. I need to send it back and write "jobs" in on the "other" line, and cross out two of the other issues and write in "jobs" on both of them. (That's if it didn't become kindling.) I don't think he'll get the message, but he's going to hear about it anyway.

Well, here's my contribution to the rumor mongering. I dislike Gov. Goodhair for other reasons.


From a Dallas website, the Front Burner

An Austin-watching, rumor-checking FrontBurnervian is hot on the trail of the gubernatorial matrimonial rumors:

Well, it's about time you get off your duff and engage in a little reportage, A. Good work on calling Haskell County. I see you spoke with Peggy Anderson, district clerk. Did you know that she's Rick's cousin?

THE AUSTIN RUMOR MILL...

...is grinding at top speed, and reporters all over the state are chasing down stories about the state of the governor's marriage. Nothing has hit print or the airwaves because none of it seems to be true. The big one this morning: Anita Perry filed for divorce yesterday in Haskell County, where the Perrys are from. It didn't happen, at least according to Penny Anderson, the Haskell County district clerk. But you know media-types: where's there's smoke, there's fire. Heck, it's because of the smoke that I called Penny.

RE: ZIPPERS

Part of the Austin rumor entails the Chronicle and the paper's having received confirmation of certain details. Supposedly they are set to publish a story on same. I can tell you that the Chronicle's policy, as expressed by a senior member of its staff, is: "We don't comment on any story we might or might not be working on." That said, I do not believe they are working on a story.

(my note: that would be the Austin Chronicle, a damn cool free daily publication.) http://www.austinchronicle.com

CAN POLITICIANS KEEP THEIR ZIPPERS ZIPPED?

<snip> Meanwhile, there's another rumor that has swept Austin in the past week or so about a high-ranking Republican whose wife is barely staying on the reservation, if she hasn't already left. <snip>

(and just for background)

Perry appoints new secretary of state

Geoffrey Connor will become Texas' 104th secretary of state, Gov. Rick Perry announced Tuesday.

Connor has served as assistant secretary of state since 2001 and led numerous international trade missions under two previous secretaries of state.

As secretary of state, Connor will serve as the state's chief elections officer and is the liaison for the governor on border and Mexican affairs.

Former Secretary of State Gwyn Shea resigned August 4 to spend more time with family, according to a letter Shea sent to Gov. Perry in July.

Well, you're familiar with Malloy's adage, right? Of what it would take to bring down a Republican? "It won't happen unless they're caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy"...

Having said *that*... let's not make waves on this unless confirmation rolls down the line. And even *then*, we should point out that, hey, it's all about *sex*! He was having a consentual relationship with his *boyfriend*, he shouldn't be punished politically for *that*!

When I think of Texas, I think of this audio. scary stuff going on in Texas. Anything that might snap some souls back into the real world, I am for....

from NPR>>>
RELIGIOUS RIGHT
As the Republican Party of Texas began to dominate Texas politics through
the 1990's, the Religious Right made inroads and eventually took control of
the Party, pushing it even farther right.

NPR's Wade Goodwyn chronicles the dramatic political change that has occurred in Texas. After nurturing such powerful Democrats as Lyndon Johnson and Sam Rayburn, Texas today is dominated by Republicans. The party runs the legislature in Austin, and it counts Rep. Tom DeLay as a powerful ally in Washington. Many expect that the state's newly adopted redistricting plan will help the GOP increase its influence even more.

"RE: Gov. Perry (R-TX) Sex Scandal Brewing"
In response to Reply #0


          

This is an interesting item....If true, it further shows how hypocritical these Republicans are. Remember, Perry was Bush's "right-hand man" - which may take on a new meaning soon - in Texas who pushed through the latest redistricting scheme. And remember how opposed publicly Bush and Perry are to gay marriages.
The situation could also give new meaning to the phrase, "Politics makes strange bed-fellows."
There are also similar rumors about Bush and the former mayor of Knoxville and his fellow Yale cheerleader. I wonder if the media will be asking Bush and Perry about these rumors, like the press is asking Kerry about rumors of affairs.

"Update?"
In response to Reply #0


          

Noticed its been HOURS since there was an update of Perrygate, so I Googled "Governor Perry scandal".

Whoa.

Check that out.

Then http://www.yellowdogblog.com/mt/archives/000110.html

      Gov. Rick Perry says he has reeled in more than 10,000 jobs since 2003 by luring big business and big events to Texas.

      The most-talked-about catch is the Toyota plant being built in San Antonio. Perry parlayed that success into a $295 million appropriation from the Legislature for his office to put together incentive packages to land even bigger corporate prizes.

      But a close examination of Perry's claims of creating jobs in Texas raises questions about some of the numbers.

      Of the 1,221 Houston-area positions on a list of projects bringing jobs to Texas issued by the governor's office, some are not new. And some jobs may never even materialize.


    This is big news- the nearly $300 million "slush fund" used by Perry to court businesses (and potential campaign donors) in controversial ways was decried at the time of its creation by Democrats, Independents and honest Republicans all over the state. The fund was paid for while important education initiatives, such as the Texas Tomorrow Fund, started to sink and now it appears that it was obtained dishonestly.


Just how many Perry-dals are running concurrently?

I've sent some inquiries to a couple of reporters I've worked with in the past, and am still waiting for a response. I believe one is out on vacation and the other on assignment. You'll know more when I know more.

"Wag the dog drills?"
In response to Reply #32


          

Here's an AP story today. Are these drills part of the plan to divert attention from perry scandals?

Multiple disaster drill planned

02/17/2004

Associated Press


A multistate drill this week will help test Texas' response to multiple emergencies including effects from a simulated nuclear explosion and a suspected radiation leak, officials say.

State leaders have been briefed that the disaster response exercise known as Unified Defense 04 Thursday and Friday will include the nuclear blast, a suspected radiation leak and a hurricane.

Other unplanned simulations may be added to the three mock events, said Kathy Walt, spokeswoman for Gov. Rick Perry, who will attend a Tuesday briefing on the drill with other officials.

"It's important to let the public know they won't be able to see anything" related to the drills, Walt told the San Antonio Express-News in Tuesday's online edition. "This is a tabletop exercise. They won't see any events occurring."

Walt said the simulated small nuclear detonation Friday in Cotulla will include 2,000 simulated deaths the first time the federal government will be using such a scenario in an exercise.

A drill involving the scenario of a suspected radiation leak was also planned Friday at the Comanche Peak nuclear power plant. Walt said that under the mock exercise, the leak will turn out to be unfounded.

Officials said the exercise involving the simulated Category 4 hurricane, with winds of 131-155 mph, would hit Corpus Christi and its naval air station Thursday.

The Homeland Security Department and more than 50 federal, state and local entities will participate in the drills, according to the North American Aerospace Defense Command and the United States Northern Command, conducting the drill.

The drills are to determine how federal, state and local officials would react under simultaneous emergencies.

"One of the issues in preparing for homeland defense is the notion that, would terrorists look for natural disasters that are likely to occur and then try to time an event to coincide with a community or state responding to a natural disaster?" Walt said.

Most participants will be in Texas, Alaska, Colorado, Virginia and the D.C. region, according to the two commands. A debriefing with "lessons learned" will follow the exercise.

"All hell is about to break loose on the Perry-Connor sex scandal"
In response to Reply #32


          

Byron LaMasters, a 21-year-old student at the University of Texas at Austin and former president of the University Democrats Club, says at http://www.burntorangereport.com/archives/001085.html that he spoke to a GOP staffer at the Texas Capitol, who said regarding the Perry-Connor sex scandal, "All hell is about to break loose."

I have heard the same thing from others.

From http://www.gossiplist.com/blog/

There's also interesting stories like this abounding:

I crossed paths with a college student at UT who SWORE to me that the governor flirted with him and in a very roundabout way (meaning, if ever confronted, he could say he meant something else), extended an inviation to him to hook up. The governor acted like they knew each other, but the guy said they had never met before.
At the time, I thought it was just the over active imagination or outright lie of a young kid. Perhaps not...

And here is a link to the story of Perry signing the Defense of Marriage Act in 2003:

http://www.aberdeennews.com/mld/aberdeennews/news/nation/5959187.htm
Texas governor OKs 'defense of marriage act'

Gov. Rick Perry signed a law preventing Texas from legally recognizing same-sex unions that are formed in other states.
Tuesday's signing of the Defense of Marriage Act makes it the 37th state to enact such a law, said Kelly Shackelford, president of the Plano-based Free Market Foundation, a group that describes itself as dedicated to strengthening families.
Already, Texas only permits marriage between a man and a woman.
"What this does, it protects your state from having a different definition forced on you from another state," Shackelford said.
The new law denies same-sex couples who were joined in a marriage or civil union in another state the right to claim any legal protection or benefit granted to married people in Texas, including the ability to divorce or to demand job benefits given to married people.
The law won't stop couples of the same sex from living together nor will it deny same-sex couples the right to bequeath property or enter into powers of attorney, said the bill's author, Republican Sen. Jeff Wentworth.
Critics say the bill represents a right-wing agenda of intolerance.
"It's about politics. It's about scapegoating gays and lesbians," said Randall Ellis, executive director of the Lesbian Gay Rights Lobby of Texas.
Ellis said the act was unnecessary because existing statutes specify that, in Texas, state laws apply even to marriages performed elsewhere.
Supporters said the act was needed to protect Texas from the decisions of judges in other states where same-sex unions could be recognized.
"Like the vast majority of Texans, I believe that marriage represents a sacred union between a man and a woman," Perry said in a statement. "With passage of the Defense of Marriage Act, Texas now joins more than 30 states in reinforcing that basic belief."

.....But apparently to Perry it's OK for a man to have a "union" with another man as long as you don't get married....

In response to Reply #38


          

I do not see, however, in the United States of American, a caucasian male announcing that he is a homosexual, proud to be one, and that he is going to run for Governor of Texas or any other state. Part of success in politics is that 'family' man image. Is it right? Of course not, but then, he would have never been the Governor of Texas in the first place if the public had known about the duplicities in private life, now would he?

"If an elected rep"
In response to Reply #31


          

who has taken anti-gay stances is enjoying gay sex, that's relevant. Beyond that, I think these things play great to the base republican base, but beyond that, who cares? Any evidence this hurt Clinton in his elections? He probably could have been elected a third time.
I also think that Linsey Graham's loafers were not blocked with sufficent gravity retarding capability.

"Why this is good besides the obvious reason"
In response to Reply #0


          


The Republican party has fooled a bunch of joe six-packs into identifying with them. We, the Republicans imply, are real honest straight(in every sense)-shootin', "are you ready for sum football" sayin' NASCAR lovin', God fearin', librul fightin', A-rab killin' family men who will save you from the queers, Hillary, the feminazis and the ACLU, just like Rush says.

Perry's story shatters this image in almost every possible way. If a couple of more closeted Republicans are outed or turn out to be addicted to synthetic heroin, it could be very serious.

This can have a huge impact. Check out, for instance, how many hits this thread has.

This story has been corroborated by three of my friends (none of whom know each other) who all work in the legislature in some capacity. It seems to be true. One can only hope
