(Salon) — An Austin Ron Paul supporter has taken out a full-page ad in the local alt weekly newspaper seeking any “stripper … escort … or ‘young hottie’” who has slept with Rick Perry, part of his single-minded jihad against the presidential candidate.
Robert Morrow describes himself as a “self-employed investor and political activist” as well as a three-time delegate to the Texas state GOP convention.
“Have you ever had sex with Rick Perry?” blares the ad, placed by Morrow in this week’s Austin Chronicle. “Are you a stripper, an escort, or just a ‘young hottie’ impressed by an arrogant, entitled governor of Texas? Contact CASH, and we will help you publicize your direct dealings with a Christian-buzzwords-spouting, ‘family values’ hypocrite and fraud.”
CASH is the Committee Against Sexual Hypocrisy, of which Morrow is president. “Is it a real group? No. It’s just me,” he told Salon earlier this week. Here is the ad, which the paper confirmed is running today.
To be clear, there is absolutely no evidence that Perry has had extramarital affairs. But Morrow has written a screed, currently circulating online, that denounces Perry both for his policies (it labels him a “crony capitalist” and a “Neocon”) as well as his alleged dalliances.
Morrow claims that he knows strippers in Austin who have stories about Perry, but none of them are willing to come forward to the press; hence, the need for an ad in the Chronicle. “I think it’s only a matter of time until somebody credible comes forward,” he told me.
At the bottom of the ad is a nod to the longtime (and equally unsubstantiated) rumors that Perry, who has pursued sundry anti-gay policies, is himself gay. “Note to gay people: If you know the truth about Rick, please QUIT covering for him,” it reads.
The Chronicle itself looked into the infidelity/gay rumors in 2004, calling them “extraordinary in their baroque detail and remarkable persistence.” It found “no evidence of any truth to any of them, whatsoever.” Just this past June, Politico reported that Perry’s organization was “more than prepared” for a re-airing of the gay rumors. His spokesman said that Perry and his wife, Anita, “have been lovingly married since 1982 and are parents to two grown children.”
Perry was set up today as well by a Lefty Moonbat Mother on the subject of evolution. This guy is a LIGHTNING ROD to the Left.
He loves Jesus and supports our military. THIS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!

Kevin at TheIowaRepublic floats a conspiracy theory that a few of us over at Under The Golden Dome have been kicking around for awhile as well:
Here’s the theory… Palinis in cahoots with Rick Perry, who she endorsed in 2010 and has praised repeatedly since then. Palin runs cover for Perry, announces she’s not running and encourages her flock to support him. With the momentum he’s gaining, that might be enough to put him over the top… Remember, this is just a conspiracy theory, but if/when it happens, you read it here first…The roots of these beliefs for us go all the way back to November 13, 2008, just days after
Palin lost her bid to become our Vice President. Governor Perry was then the chair of the Republican Governors Association and made every effort to be tied Palin with that day. In advance of the meeting he told Fox News she would be treated as a “returning hero,” adding:
“We know her, we’ve known her better and longer than any of those folks out there. We respect her. We support her. And she is reflective of the type of leadership that America expects from American governors.”On the day of the meeting, Perry introduced and stood next to Palin during a three minute press conference (something she never held during the ’08 campaign…) and soon took the reigns of the event by interjecting “one more question” when stepping up to the podium, choosing which lamestream reporter could ask the question, and then led Palin by the arm back to the podium. He even called the session to a close. Watch for yourself. Odd stuff:
