Eddie Bernice Johnson on Rick Perry: "I Don't Even Know This Governor Anymore"
Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, who worked as a nurse before heading to Washington, dropped by Martin Bashir's show on MSNBC to denounce Governor Rick Perry's stance toward Planned Parenthood (and to call Rush Limbaugh "un-American".)
"I don't even know this governor anymore," the congresswoman says in the clip above. "I thought I did. I used to have some communication with him and we had some understanding. I don't know whether he's been hurt because he didn't get into the presidential candidacy or nomination or what's going on. But this is not the state to turn away these type of dollars for people who need it the most."
