There are all sorts of rumblings coming out of the Rick Perry camp Monday night, with news that he has stopped paying campaign staff, who have been given the green light to take their talents elsewhere.

The bad news had started with reports that Perry had stopped paying his South Carolina staff.

Philip Rucker of the Washington Post now is reporting that the Perry pay freeze is nationwide.

Hold up, everyone. Don’t count out Perry just yet.

OK, we’ll buy that for now.

We wonder what this is about?
