Are METRO Troubles A Problem For Gov. Candidate Bill White?

One day after the Federal Transit Administration accused METRO of violating procurement procedures, Governor Rick Perry  tried to put the responsibility on former Houston Mayor Bill White.
 
White was in office and appointed the board chairman and most of its members during the time that METRO allegedly violated  federal law when it awarded contracts for two new rail lines.
 
Perry’s campaign today issued a new video called, “Bill White’s Houston METRO-gate.
 
You can watch the video at  a website set up by the Perry campaign:  www.liberalbill.com.
 
At issue is whether METRO violated the “Buy America” rules when it awarded the contracts to a Spanish rail company.
 
According to media reports,  White said he was not familiar with the details of  the report criticizing METRO or the alleged actions of the former board chairman and board members.
