Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, the man in charge of America?s supply of nuclear weapons, took the time Wednesday to criticize Texas A&M?s election for student body president. Perry?s complaint was about the process by which Bobby Brooks, who would become the first openly gay student president in the university?s history, won the election last month. Brooks finished 750 votes behind Robert McIntosh, the son of a prominent GOP fundraiser, but McIntosh was disqualified after he was found to violate a campaign finance rule over some glow sticks used in a campaign video. McIntosh had overcome an earlier disqualification stemming from anonymous charges of voter intimidation when the Student Government Association?s Judicial Court dismissed those complaints after an investigation.
