Gov. Rick Perry will keep $23,500 in campaign money for now from a major political donor accused of defrauding customers with tax problems.
Attorney General Greg Abbott filed suit Thursday against Patrick Cox and Houston-based TaxMasters, which advertises that it helps defend people facing Internal Revenue Service audits.
The lawsuit cites nearly 1,000 consumer complaints that say the company misled customers, failed to disclose its no-refunds policy and falsely claimed employees were working on cases when they weren't.
TaxMasters spokesman DeWayne Logan said the company had not reviewed the complaint and would not comment on the charges.

Perry = RINO
Good grief, people. I don’t have a big dog in the fight over Perry, but some donor has been “accused” of something. And we yell give the money back or you, who are not accused of anything in particular, are a dirty rotten something or other.
Patrick Cox - Always thought that guy looked like a crook.
I hope these crooks go to jail.
Was this person convicted?
There are so many crooks on tv peddling crapola to the Jed Clampett humanoids out there who fall for it. This guy especially looks like a skid row used car salesman. Forget your IRS debt, forget your credit car debt and the latest I saw....forget your car payment. Yeah, right.
My personal recommendation is JK Harris.
The suit was filed yesterday. Even in Texas it takes more than a day to get a conviction.
Patrick Cox. What an unfortunate name for him, right up there with Peter Eaton.
