The Last Of The Millenniums

Just because it always has been, doesn't mean it always will be

‘Joe The (not so plumber) Plumber’

 

 

Or lesser known as Samuel Wurzelbacher.

Representative Marcy Kaptur -D  Samuel Wurzelbacher -R(tea bag) – Ohio -9th

Yep. Just a ‘regular’. hard working, blue collar guy.

‘Wurzelbacher has no plumbing income in the last two years. Rather, he’s been earning a modest income as a speaker for lobbying groups and political causes, many of which are funded by corporate interests’.

‘According to financial disclosure forms collected by Republic Report, Wurzelbacher has made over $140,000 in honorarium fees — his only reported source of income since 2010’.

Here are some of the most interesting fees:

– ‘Americans for Prosperity, the group financed in part by the billionaire Koch brothers and led by the astroturf lobbyist Tim Phillips, has paid Joe the Plumber at least $32,000’.

‘The disclosure forms reviewed by Republic Report indicate that Wurzelbacher has forgone plumbing for a career as a political speaker, one closely tied to special interests that might be looking for payback if Joe the Plumber becomes Joe the Congressman’.
