According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Perry owes $200,000, but has refused to pay not because he doesnít have the money, but rather because the contractors didnít do their job. Perry also claims the contracting company has been treating him like dirt.

Perry told the AJC.ďIíve seen the worst of what people can be, the worst of what family members can be. I pride myself on taking care of my business. I pride myself on being able to pay the billsÖIím not sympathetic to anybody whoís trying to rip me off. Just because Iím a Christian, just because Iím a nice guy, it doesnít mean Iím a wimp.Ē

Perry has a history of not paying his bills. Some kind of hangup over his father not being paid by a contractor and now Perry wants to punish contractors for some vendetta over his father decades ago. Perry is reported as difficult, argumentative, and spiteful. Lock him up until he pays his bills.

Perry, being a "christian", does not exclude you from being as a'hole. Do what's right and pay your bills!!!
