Governor Rick Perry claims that his proposed mandatory STD vaccinations for 12-year-old girls weren’t influenced by his ties to Merck, a pharmaceutical company that donated $30,000 to his campaign. What people don’t know, however, is that at that time, his former chief of staff was working as a lobbyist for Merck. Coincidence? Psh. And plus, since when is a dude who refuses to support teaching kids about condoms concerned about sexual health? Google damn him.
