Perry claims residence in two places

August 11, 2009 3:54:51 PM PDT
Gov. Rick Perry lives, works and votes in Austin. But records obtained by The Associated Press show that he also claims to be a resident of College Station, where he owns a house and gets a tax break intended for local homeowners. Perry aides said the governor is entitled to claim a house he owns in College Station as his primary residence, even though he lives in an Austin mansion in Austin and is asking voters to keep him in the state capital for the next four years.

But after inquiries from The AP late Tuesday, Perry's re-election campaign said he may have to refund some of the tax break he got.
