    Rick Perry's Crony Capitalism Problem

    And most recently:

    Texas A&M University executive who Gov. Rick Perry wanted promoted to school president quietly resigned after not getting the job, becoming the latest top campus official to step down in recent months.
    Terry Fossum, former A&M University System vice chancellor for global and corporate partnerships, abruptly retired in December. Fossum, a well-known Perry acquaintance, had worked for Texas A&M since 1987 but retired only a few months after her job that paid $370,000 annually was created. She announced her resignation less than a week after regents unanimously voted to name Hussey interim president.
    And Joe Weber, Texas A&M's vice president of student affairs and a longtime friend of Perry, left this month to lead the Texas Department of Transportation.

      to give the full Rick Perry story.  Loathsome thief.

      He's had longer than any of these other crooks, so I assume the amounts stolen/grifted/weaseled are larger in his case.
