Joe the Plumber- Completely FakeOctober 16, 2008
Okay, so… Joe the Plumber is actually Samuel J. Wurzelbacher. He is closely related to the Wurzelbacher that was Charles Keating’s VP and son in law, a convicted felon. Keating was the guy who John McCain broke a slew of ethics laws for, and a first rate scumbag. So, Sam the fake plumber ends up not being legally registered to vote in Ohio, as the only person that fits ‘Joe’ is one Sam Worzelbacher , so thus must commit voting fraud in order to vote as his name is completely incorrect.
It also seems that Joe doesn’t even live near where he questioned Senator Obama, as the address for Newell Plumbing, the company which he is an unlicensed ‘plumber’ for is quite a distance away, and is a residence. So he wasn’t just outside throwing the football with his son…he travelled to get there.
What a big ol’ crock this is. Another stunt by the McCain camp.
Many have pointed out the oddity that this man who is supposedly not involved with politics would be interviewed by several right wing media outlets prior to the debate and was already confirmed for the morning shows by the time the event wrapped up. Within hours it was reported that the McCain Campaign had asked him to attend a rally on Sunday but he was going to be out of town for the weekend…doing the talk show circuit it turns out. Many have also remarked on the similarity between the talking points he’s been repeating and some new ones cropping up around the talk circuit with Stephanie Miller reporting that she’s recently gotten calls with the same language. Also an odd thing, if nothing else, is the presence of newspaper reporters at his house to photograph him watching the debate, though he says he had no idea he would be mentioned. Of course he was more than mentioned, he was McCain’s whole line of attack.
During last night’s presidential debate, we heard a lot about “Joe the Plumber,” also known as Joe Wurzelbacher, an average (ahem) Joe, who is really worried that a President Obama might raise his taxes. But does Joe really need to worry? Because if he’s the same Joe that ABC News identified as Sam Joe Wurzelbacher, also of Toledo, Ohio, he doesn’t always bother to pay his taxes.
