|"See it is this way unless I change my mind and make it that way" Charles Perry|
After posting yesterday about Charles Perry and the fabrications he includes on his website about supporting the State Water Plan I received a number of emails regarding other deceptive practices he is involved in. I will go over them in the coming days but I thought one was especially disingenuous. Apparently Jodey Arrington has been endorsed by one of the largest associations in Texas, the Texas Medical Association (TMA), a coveted endorsement since it represents most of the medical community in the State including thousands of doctors. (I always say if you can trust a doctor taking care of your children then it is probably safe to trust them in other areas as well.)
It turns out that Charles Perry has a big problem with this and he sent out an email to his supporters telling them so. He claims in the email that TMA supports abortion (it doesn’t) and he has a problem that they have donated to Democrats in the past. He neglects to mention that all associations give both the Republican and Democrats since they represent men and women from all over the State of Texas. Of course TMA doesn’t donate to Republicans in the valley, no viable Republicans run for office in the valley.
Just to show you that Charles Perry will do ANYTHING to get elected to the State Senate and how inept he is I went back and did a little research. It turns out that between 2010 and 2014 Representative Charles Perry accepted more that $3,000.00 in donations from Texas Medical Association and gladly accepted their endorsement. Isn’t that rich! Perry attacks his opponent for doing something he himself did just a few years before. Typical politician.
In addition, one of Charles Perry’s biggest supporter, Empower Texans, has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars attacking Republican office holders. As a matter of fact, Empower Texans this week sent out a letter to constituents of Republican office holders attacking them for voting with David Simpson (R-Longview) on legislation that was unconstitutional. Empower Texans did this less than three months before a general election, which obviously benefits their Democrat opponents.
I don’t know Charles Perry but I cannot stand politicians that say one thing while they are home and do another when they come to Austin. It is obvious that Charles Perry will say and do anything to be elected to the Texas Senate and that is the problem we have with today’s politician. Perry likes to tell voters he is an accountant, hopefully the voters of SD 28 are paying attention and send him back to his day job,
Until next time – Adios my friends!
