Rick's office testifying about stimulus dollars...

The Newspaper Tree blog is reporting that Rep. Jim Dunnam is holding a hearing next Wednesday, and Rick's staff will be testifying (link). Sounds like an opportunity for sparks. Excerpts follow:
On Wednesday, The House select committee on Federal Economic Stabilization Funding will hear testimony from the Office of the Governor. State Rep. Jim Dunnam, D-Waco, who chairs the committee, has been one of the most outspoken critics of Gov. Rick Perry’s handling of the stimulus money, particularly his public turning-down of over $550m of unemployment benefits that Texas could receive if it made changes to its unemployment code.

If attending, get there early and bring popcorn…

Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
