More election-related crony capitalism from Rick Perry

So, former Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade has been nominated by Gov. Tricky Ricky Perry as Texas Workforce Commissioner for Employers? Less than 3.5 months after resigning her gummit job and becoming a "consultant" of some sort (read: lobbyist in training), and not having been a real private-sector employer for years, she gets this cushy job?

Meanwhile, if this is part of Tricky Ricky's bid for re-election in 2014, it seems to have worked.

Hispanics of all stripes are sucking up to the nomination.

When does Tony Sanchez write Gov. Helmethair a check?

And how sad is Greg Abbott that he doesn't have a fistful of (potential) Hispanic nominations?
