Daily Beast spotlights Perry’s Beta talk

by The Dartmouth Web Staff

14 Oct 2011

 

 

The Daily Beast ques­tioned Rick Perry’s choice of post-de­bate venue on Tues­day — the can­di­date spoke at Beta after ver­bal spar­ring at the Hop — and de­scribed Beta’s his­tory of haz­ing and racist com­men­tary in an ar­ti­cle pub­lished last night. Perry’s de­ci­sion to speak at a frat with a con­ser­v­a­tive South­ern rep­u­ta­tion isn’t sur­pris­ing, ar­ti­cle au­thor Andy Ross con­cludes, but Beta’s re­cent re­turn to cam­pus after a ban for ques­tion­able in­sti­tu­tional be­hav­ior does make it a risky choice as a venue for build­ing broad po­lit­i­cal sup­port.
