Every governor is a degen...?
This seems to be from a website that doesn't really have circulation
Gov. Sonny Perdue made it clear last year that he would block any attempt to set up slot machines in Underground Atlanta. He saw the proposal for what it was: just one more desperate attempt to find money in a bad economy.
Primarily, though, Perdue said no to the idea because he's a Southern Baptist, and he's opposed to gambling.
Back in 2007, Perdue bet Texas Gov. Rick Perry that the Little League team from Warner Robins, Ga., would beat the Texas team in the World Series. When they did, Perry paid up on the bet by flying the Georgia flag over the Texas Capitol.
Then, this past week, Perdue won again when the Georgia Bulldogs played the Texas A&M Aggies in the Independence Bowl. Perry, a Texas A&M graduate, had to make a donation to the Atlanta Community Food Bank when UGA, Perdue's alma mater, won. Perdue's office issued press releases to brag about the winning streak.
Yeah, I know, these bets between governors are all just "friendly wagers." Call them whatever you want; they're still bets. And that means as long as Perdue continues to profess his opposition to gambling, he's a hypocrite.
