The Guiltier You Are, The More Lawyers You Need
July 17, 2015

Perry’s report shows that he brought in only $685 in contributions, but he spent $1.48 million. That means that his legal defense costs represent 69 percent of his spending. Perry only had $1.28 million left in his campaign account as of June 30, which means that if his legal costs continue accumulating at the same pace, he will run out of money unless contributions increase.

Gosh, wouldn’t that be a shame?

Bubba has a saying that guilty people need a great lawyer because anybody can get an innocent person off.

I think the only reason Perry is running for President is to raise the money to pay his lawyers. He knows he cannot win.
