AUSTIN — Gov. Rick Perry has appointed his chief of staff to the Texas Supreme Court.

Jeffrey Boyd will join the state’s highest civil court Dec. 3 and finish a term that expires at the end of 2014.

The general counsel helps the governor review death-penalty cases.

Perry has overseen 253 executions and commuted one sentence — granting life in prison to a death row inmate who drove the getaway car during a robbery and murder.

1. You know what this reminds me of?

Does anybody remember Geoffrey O'Connor? He was Rick Perry's appointment to Secretary of State awhile back. Resigned under dubious circumstances - rumors of having been a Rick Perry lover. Yes that Geoffrey.

"I suggest you ask Rick Perry."
The longest-standing rumor about Perry—and the one that has received the most public attention—is that his wife Anita caught him sleeping with his Secretary of State Geoff Connor and threatened a divorce. Maxey says that he and the reporter drove to Connor's house to confront him, and here's what Connor said: "I'm no longer a public official and I don't care to comment on that. I suggest you ask Rick Perry."


Don't know why this strikes me like this - it's just a gut feeling and I don't know anything about this guy at all.

The cronyism part - that is a pre-requisite for any position Perry appoints someone to.
