    Gov. Perry spends $1M in defense against felony charges

    Gov. Perry spends $1M in defense against felony charges



    AUSTIN, TEXAS State records show Gov. Rick Perry so far has spent more than $1 million on lawyers defending him against a felony indictment alleging he abused his power.
    . . .
    Perry had initially used taxpayer money to cover expenses of at least $80,000. He later announced he would use his campaign account to pay the tab.

    A grand jury indicted Perry in August on charges he abused his official capacity and coerced a public servant, stemming from his public threat and eventual decision to veto state funding for public corruption prosecutors.

    Perry, a Republican, leaves office next week after 14 years as governor.

    Is that a valid use of campaign funds?
