Amarillo, Texas - Rick Perry is facing some tough criticism, forcing him to publicly defend his decision to draw from his state pension, while he's of course very much still employed.
He gets $92,000 a year from the pension, on top of his $133,000 annual governor's salary.
It's all legal using a complicated formula.
Perry told reporters Saturday it would be rather foolish not to access what you've earned. "That's been in place for decades. And I bought my military time, and then obviously the 25 years of public service time, and as you reach that age you become eligible for it, so I don't find that to be out of the ordinary."
