Perry Used Jet of Donor Who Faces SEC Probe
Source: Fox News

Texas Gov. Rick Perry and his family have made presidential campaign trips aboard a jet owned by a wealthy contributor who is under investigation for possible securities fraud by Texas regulators and the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Perry, who has emerged in just weeks as the new frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination, flew last weekend aboard Brian D. Pardo's Cessna Citation X jet from a remote Texas airport to various campaign events in Iowa, according to a Perry campaign aide and flight records obtained via Flightwise.com.


Records showed that Pardo's plane also flew from Texas to Charleston, S.C., on Aug. 13, the day Perry announced his bid for the presidency there.

Perry's campaign said the plane carried the governor's relatives to the campaign kickoff.

Pardo, chief executive of Life Partners Holdings Inc. of Waco, Texas, last year donated $50,000 to Perry's Texas campaign fund. Life Partners is a major player in the controversial "life settlement" business, selling retail investors the right to collect on strangers' life-insurance policies.

I think what is amazing is that this is from Fox News...then I remembered, KKKarl hates Perry. But OTOH, Is that not the sleaziest, most disgusting business model on the planet? "selling retail investors the right to collect on strangers' life-insurance policies."

3. Isn't that a question. Why are they so mean and so filled
with hate? What happened to them that they have become so vile as to be loathsome?
