NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry has made presidential campaign trips on a jet owned by a contributor who is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission and Texas regulators, according to published media reports.
Perry flew last weekend on a jet belonging to Brian D. Pardo, the CEO of life settlement company Life Partners Holdings (LPHI), according to a report by The Wall Street Journal that cited a Perry campaign aide and flight records obtained through Flightwise.com.
The plane also carried the governor's relatives from Texas to Charleston, S.C. on Aug. 13, the day Perry officially launched his presidential campaign, the report added.
