Perry Reports New Campaign Debt of $230,000

Much of the amended total is related to private-jet use.

DES MOINES -- Rick Perry disclosed new debts of nearly $230,000 that his campaign likely incurred when it underpaid private-jet owners who loaned the candidate their aircraft for the campaign.

The new campaign finance information was first reported on Friday by The New York Times.

FEC filings show that the Texas governor owes $66,362.50 to Javaid Anwar, the head of a West Texas energy company; $45,435.16 to a company owned by Perry supporter Dan Friedkin; and $22,931.15 to Waco businessman and Perry supporter Brian Pardo.

 

Last month, The Times reported that Perry had insufficiently reimbursed several private-jet owners for use of their planes since his campaign paid only for the seats used rather than the equivalent cost of renting a charter flight as is required under federal election rules. Two days later, the campaign’s general counsel, Bill Canfield, told the paper that the campaign would be amending its finance report to reimburse the jet owners an amount in the five-figure range in order to be in compliance with the law. That is, however, less than the amount of new debt the campaign reported today.

Before the additional filing, the campaign had roughly $15 million cash on hand and $339,120 in debt, according to their third-quarter filing with the FEC.
