The AP is reporting that Texas Governor Rick Perry is running for president of the United States. Perry will be the only person ever to run for president with a record of 234 executions and counting, including the wrongful execution of Todd Willingham and subsequent misuse of gubernatorial power to impede the investigation of a government agency into the case of Willingham.
Texas Moratorium Network (TMN) is a non-profit organization with the primary goal of mobilizing statewide support for a moratorium on executions in Texas. Significant death penalty reform in Texas, including a moratorium on executions, is a viable goal if the public is educated on the death penalty system and is encouraged to contact their elected representatives to urge passage of moratorium legislation.
