Perry dodges question on the Trans Texas Corridor

The Victoria Advocate asked a simple question of Rick Perry August 6, but this video shows a long-winded "dodge" to the reporter's question (because he's still pushing the Trans Texas Corridor, or TTC, and knows it's political suicide to admit it).

In fact, he intentionally misleads the public into thinking the Texas Legislature killed the TTC last session when, in fact, it did not.
  • The TTC-35 contract was signed in 2005 and has not been revoked or bought out.
  • The entire TTC-69 was excepted out of the moratorium so segments of it can go under contract with foreign entities through 2011.
  • The bill to repeal the Trans Texas Corridor (introduced by Rep. David Leibowitz) never made it out of committee, and it was later attached to a bill that died.
