Texas DPS Internal Affairs Documents

Documents found at the Travis County District Court, many of which came from the Internal Affairs division at the Texas Department of Public Safety, show that the costs of Governor Rick Perry's protective detail is exorbitant, due to the requirement that they stay in the same extravagant hotels as Governor Perry. One DPS official wrote an affidavit saying “it costs a lot to stay and eat in places where the Governor and his family go.”
