Ohio's 'Joe the Plumber' gets GOP nod for CongressAn Ohio plumber thrust into national politics during the 2008 presidential campaign has won the Republican nomination in his home state as he makes a bid for Congress.Samuel Wurzelbacher gained the nickname "Joe the Plumber" for expressing working-class concerns about taxes to then-candidate Barack Obama during a stop to the region.The Toledo-area plumber defeated Steve Kraus, a Sandusky real estate agent, early Wednesday to grab the GOP nomination in Ohio's 9th Congressional District.He faces an uphill climb in the fall against veteran U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, who won the Democratic primary. The newly drawn district snaking along the Lake Erie shoreline from Toledo to Cleveland tilts toward Democrats.[/break1]sacbee.com/2012/03/06/4317408/ohios-joe-the-plumber-gets-gop.html]http://www.sacbee.com/2012/03/06/431740 ... s-gop.htmlHe wasn't even a real plumber, who would have some business experience. He is nothing but an ignorant, crass big mouth.

He faces an uphill climb in the fall against veteran U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, who won the Democratic primary.Joe the Plumber is overshadowing the real story:CBS: [/break1]cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57392078-503544/dennis-kucinich-concedes-defeat-to-marcy-kaptur-in-ohio-democratic-primary/]Dennis Kucinich concedes defeat to Marcy Kaptur in Ohio Democratic primaryRep. Dennis Kucinich, a liberal establishment in the House, conceded defeat Tuesday night in Ohio's 9th district Democratic primary to longtime Rep. Marcy Kaptur.[...]Both well-known Democrats, the 15-term Kaptur ended up competing against the eight-term Kucinich after Ohio lost two congressional districts because of the state's declining population. Kaptur started the race with an edge in the new 9th district, which retained more of her old district than Kucinich's.

Joe the Plumber' links Holocaust with gun control





The Ohio congressional candidate known as "Joe the Plumber" is running a campaign video in which he suggests that Nazi gun controls contributed to deaths during the Holocaust because Jews didn't have firearms to defend themselves.





The ad drew strong rebukes from Democrats and Jewish organizations.





In the video, Samuel Wurzelbacher loads a shotgun and fires at lemons and tomatoes placed on wooden posts. "In 1939, Germany established gun control," he says. "From 1939 to 1945, six million Jews and seven million others, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated," he says before ending the video by saying "I love America."[/break1]sacbee.com/2012/06/20/4576159/joe-the-plumber-links-holocaust.html]http://www.sacbee.com/2012/06/20/457615 ... caust.html

Joe has transferred his money from his campaign to a PAC.He was paying himself a $5,000/mo salary while campaigning, and has continued that practice from his PAC money.[/break1]cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2013/01/new_baby_new_website_for_joe_t.html]http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf ... joe_t.htmlHe said he was paying himself a salary cuz he couldn't be a serious candidate without having some income.but...Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, the Republican running against U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, skipped out on the City Club of Cleveland debate Thursday and has earned a reputation for being all but impossible to contact, even by his fellow Republicans.“We have heard nothing from his campaign,” said Avon Lake City Councilwoman Jennifer Fenderbosch, who serves as the Republican area chairwoman for Avon and Avon Lake and volunteers at the party’s Lorain County Victory Center. “His presence is not there.”The Victory Center, which provides phone banks and logistical support for candidates, hasn’t even received yard signs or campaign literature from Wurzelbacher, she said.Carrie Miller, spokeswoman for the City Club, said her organization made numerous attempts to reach Wurzelbacher but never heard back. Kaptur ended up speaking alone at Thursday’s event.[/break1]northcoastnow.com/2012/10/12/at-cleveland-forum-kaptur-all-alone/]http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2012 ... all-alone/Imagine how his campaign would have gone if he wasn't receiving a salary so he could campaign so hard.He was on Greg Howard's blogtalk show tonight (I didn't hear it), and had big news.He's giving away an AR-15 cuz... freedom.[/break1]com/win-a-free-ar-15/]http://joeforamerica.com/win-a-free-ar-15/It seems Liberty Alliance thinks him a good spokesperson.

Joe the Plumber Releases 2nd PSAPosted by Joe Wurzelbacher on Apr 1, 2013 in Culture, Politicsjoe_wurzelbacherFighting isn’t always the answer, but sometimes it is the only answer…FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE4/1/13JOE THE PLUMBER RELEASES PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT TO ADDRESS BULLYING CRISISWurzelbacher provides common sense approach to deal with the problem of bullying in schoolsToledo, OH- The federal government spends millions of dollars every year to address the problem of bullying in schools. Joe the Plumber agrees that bullying must be addressed, but believes that real solutions should raise the level of self respect for the victim. To this end, Joe has produced the following public service announcement to help governments, schools, and kids take bullying head-on. A video of the announcement can be found here:Wurzelbacher released the following statement on the announcement:“I have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to bullies. If a kid is being bullied at school, my advice to them is to punch the bully in the face. The government can create as many boards, commissions, and informational sessions on sensitivity that it wants. The fact is, we still have bullies, and we still have victims who are trained not to stand up for themselves. In a time of fiscal crisis, it is low cost, effective policies like these that will turn this country around.”Hey Joe,[/break1]abcactionnews.com/dpp/news/region_sarasota_manatee/palmetto/mother-arrested-for-encouraging-daughter-to-fight]http://www.abcactionnews.com/dpp/news/r ... r-to-fight[/break1]cbslocal.com/2013/03/13/police-delaware-county-mother-encourages-daughter-to-fight/]http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2013/0 ... -to-fight/Idiot.
