Bank Of America To Perry: 'We Will Help You Out'
WASHINGTON -- A Bank of America executive offered more than just encouragement to Texas Gov. Rick Perry in a CSPAN clip uncovered by blog ZeroHedge. He offers "help."
After speaking at a Politics and Eggs breakfast in Bedford, N.H., on Wednesday, Perry was approached by a man who then introduced himself to the governor and said: "Bank of America -- we will help you out."
Since 2003, Perry's campaigns have received more than $125,000 from Bank of America's PAC and executives, according to ThinkProgress.
Bank of America sent a statement to HuffPost:
Bank of America does not endorse Presidential candidates. The reference was about following up on the substance of the speech about job creation and economic growth. Discussing policy issues that affect our company and our customers is something we do with policymakers of both parties routinely at the local, state, and Federal levels.
