Romney secretly and illegally funded PerrySubmitted by MaxK on Sat, 10/01/2011 - 03:40
Note: This is the type of the scandal that the establishment press doesn't want to cover, because it takes down both frontrunners at once.
It might be hard to imagine after last week’s GOP presidential slugfest, but there was a time not too long ago when a group headed by Mitt Romney quietly—and a judge says illegally—helped Rick Perry’s political career in Texas and set the stage for his new nemesis to rise on the national stage.
And what hasn’t emerged before are court files reviewed by The Daily Beast stating that Romney was personally aware of the origins of the $1 million donation from a Texas homebuilder at the heart of the controversy, and that he discussed it with Perry’s campaign aides.
