Texas Transparency Means Not Available

I believed the Texas Transparency website, like Charlie Brown trying to kick a Lucy held football. This site would have information on Governor Perry's Texas Enterprise Grant funds for Vought Aircraft Industry. The Carlyle Group owned Vought when it received $35 million for a promised 3,000 new jobs.

OK, I tried Carlyle Group instead:

I tried another Carlyle subsidiary, Authentix, which received TEF funding.

Zero for three.  Clearly, Governor Perry is not accountable for economic development efforts, especially when corporate commitments fail to materialize.

Transparency over promises and under delivers, especially in Texas.
