Everything's Bigger in Texas -- Except Them "ASS 06" Checks

It's election year. Would you contribute money to "ASS 06?"

Seems a lot of Texans were getting that stamped on the checks they sent to Gov Rick Perry's (right) re-election campaign.
"In hindsight, it probably wasn't the best choice for an abbreviation." -- Robert Black, Spokesman for Gov Rick Perry (R-TX) re-election campaign
It actually stood for "A Small Supporter," and was stamped on checks made out for relatively small amounts.

Some protestors actually sent in checks for three-cents to protest a plan to raise a new business tax. They tend to think the code was more personal.
