Kinky Says He'll Offend as Governor

By  | 

HOUSTON (AP) - Author and musician Kinky Friedman says he'll offend, throw career politicians out of office, open Indian casinos
and consider a moratorium on the death penalty if elected governor.

This was his message to a group of media executives at The Texas
Associated Press Managing Editors conference Sunday.

Friedman is an independent candidate for governor who must
gather 45,540 signatures from registered voters who did not cast
ballots in the May 11 primaries.

He was the final gubernatorial candidate to address the group
over the weekend.

Republican Governor Rick Perry and Democrat and former
congressman Chris Bell, plus Carole Keeton Strayhorn, also an
independent, also spoke to the group.
