Perry asks tech fund adviser to consider resigning

DALLAS, TX The Dallas Morning News reported, for Tuesday editions, that Gov. Rick Perry's office has asked William E. Morrow to resign in the wake of a Texas Rangers investigation of a stock deal that included Morrow. The review found no wrongdoing.

Perry spokeswoman Katherine Cesinger told the newspaper late Monday that Morrow "has been asked to evaluate whether his continued service on the TETF advisory committee is in the best interest of the program."

Morrow declined comment.

State Auditor John Keel last week announced his office will review the fund after questions arose over links between contributors to GOP Perry's campaign and companies that get grants.

Perry has said nothing improper occurred.
