Perry vs. White on Financial Transparency

Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday that his opponent, Bill White, needs to reveal his tax returns from the years he was deputy energy secretary before the two can publicly debate. Perry further suggested White may be hiding something. White insisted the financial disclosure forms he submitted as part of his confirmation process are far more thorough than his income tax records, and those forms are already publicly available.
