Perry double dips state salary and pension

 Texas Gov. Rick Perry is a double-dipper, collecting a salary and retirement benefits simultaneously.

A personal financial disclosure form that presidential candidates are required to file shows that Perry is collecting his $7,700 monthly state pension.

That is allowable under state law, using a complicated formula.

Perry's salary as governor is roughly $133,000.

Collecting retirement benefits while drawing a state salary will likely expose Perry to criticism from those who complain that public sector employees are too generously compensated.

Perry's financial disclosure form was made public Friday by the Federal Election Commission.

He reported a net worth of at least $1.3 million and an annual income of $290,000.

This gov can milk the system (and taxpayer's money) better than any other in the country...when we've got over a million in Texas living in poverty, slick rick is able live the high-life by finding clever ways to work the system. This person has no shame, continues to tout his holier-than-thou religious stance, and doesn't think about those in desperate need in his own state...his only concern is making rich donors happy and conceiling his attachment to the New Apostolic Reformation cult.
