But then something remarkable happens. A tall, distinguished looking man approaches Perry and says, "Bank of America: we will help you out."
The clip was dicovered by the website Zero Hedge, which also identified the man who speaks to Perry as Bank of America’s director of public policy, James Mahoney.
The Wall Street Journal's MarketBeat blog got a response from Bank of America spokesman Lawrence Di Rita.
“Bank of America does not endorse Presidential candidates. The reference was about following up on the substance of his speech about job creation and economic growth. Discussing policy issues that affect our company and our customers is something we do with policymakers of both parties routinely at the local, state, and Federal levels," she said.
Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. Thank you.
Of course, seeing how unpopular Bank of America is with investors lately, Perry might wonder if he really wants the bank's help.
