“We found out about this the same time that I suppose the rest of America found out about it, both on the Internet or the next day in the news,” Perry told CNN Chief National Correspondent John King. “You know, I don't know how to tell it any other way except we knew nothing about it.
Perry continued, “My folks at the campaign said, 'Listen, this is what's going on out there, this is what's happening on the Internet, and we don't have any comment because we don't have anything to do with it."”
