Well, last year, in the GOP primary, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison considered using that against him.
One problem? Wingnuts liked the idea he may have sent an innocent man to death:
Multiple former Hutchison advisers recalled asking a focus group about the charge that Perry may have presided over the execution of an innocent man – Cameron Todd Willingham – and got this response from a primary voter: "It takes balls to execute an innocent man."Don't doubt that Tricky Ricky didn't have some focus groups of his own this whole time.
