It Just Looks Bad

Gov. Perry’s son hired by firm consulting on lottery.

UBS, one of two large financial firms consulting with the governor’s office over the possible sale of the Texas lottery, hired Gov. Rick Perry’s son to work in its Dallas office about two weeks ago.

The governor’s office said that there is no relationship between the two events and that Griffin Perry, 23, is a bright young economist who is pursuing a career on his own merits.

Even if it’s on the up-and-up they had to know that this wouldn’t look good. Daddy’s the governor who’s trying to sell the lottery and his son goes to work for the company that’s trying to broker the deal. That just looks bad.
