Texas governor demands apology over newspaper's plant blast cartoon

(CNN) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry is demanding an apology from a California newspaper that published a cartoon that seemed to link his push for less regulations to the recent fertilizer plant explosion that killed 14.

"The Sacramento Bee published a disgusting 'cartoon' mocking the deadly explosion in West.

I have written the editor and asked that they apologize to the citizens of West," Perry wrote on his official Facebook page.
