(AP) AUSTIN, Texas Documents obtained by The Associated Press provide new detail about the relationship between Texas Gov. Rick Perry's office and Merck, the company that makes a new vaccine to prevent cervical cancer.
The documents show that Perry's chief of staff met with aides about the vaccine on the same day that Merck donated $50,000 to Perry's campaign and a total of $5,000 to the campaigns of eight Texas lawmakers.
And my favorite part:
The governor's spokesman says the timing is just coincidence.
Right. And if my grandma had wheels, she'd be a wagon.
