Rick Perry Says The Federal Reserve Is "Almost Treasonous"

Aug 16, 2011

On August 15, 2011, Texas Gov. Rick Perry bizarrely asserted that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke was "almost" committing treason for, well, doing his job:

PERRY: If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but we — we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous — or treasonous in my opinion.
