Subject: Get Off Our Turf, Bucko
Governor Perry, we are in receipt of news articles which show that you gave a campaign contributor $4.5 million in state tax dollars, after the contributor’s company’s proposal had already been rejected by a screening committee.
Sir, with all due respect, we are not amused. We in The State of Illinois take our branding very seriously. We are proud that Illinois has long been the undisputed national leader in public corruption. We cannot allow this flagrant infringement of our territory to continue.
You, sir, have been warned.
