"One of Texas Governor Rick Perry's oft-touted strengths in the Republican primary is his demonstrated prowess at fundraising. Less widely known is how he has raised that money and what he has done in return for it. According to Texas good government and environmental watchdogs, Perry has raised much of his campaign funds from business executives who have financial interests in state government decisions. Often Perry's supporters come from the energy sector and Perry's help for them has come at the expense of the environment." (08/17/11)
