Anita Perry: Obama Cost My Son His Job

Anita Perry, wife of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, said Friday that she can “empathize” with the unemployed because her son had to resign from his job to work on her husband’s campaign. "He resigned his job two weeks ago because he can't go out and campaign with his father because of SEC regulations," she said, adding later, "My son lost his job because of this administration.” The Perrys’ son, Griffin, worked at Deutsche Bank, and it’s unclear which regulations his mother was referring to. Still, she said his situation made her better understand the unemployed. "He has a wife ... he's trying to start a business. So I can empathize."
