Wasinger used Giuliani fundraiser

Oh how far Rob Wasinger has fallen when wonce he wearned to tell a widdle white wie.

It looks like Steve Kupka, the fellow who hosted a fund raiser for Rob Wasinger in their D.C. lobbyist offices, also used to work for some other Republican candidates. Kupka works for the D.C. lobbying firm of
Husch Blackwell Sanders LLC, who also happen to do work for the California Stem Cell Initiative. If you're like me, you found that to be a little troubling given Wasinger has tried to present himself as "the" conservative candidate in the first district race. has Kupka listed as a "bundler" for Rudy Giuliani's campaign during the 2008 Presidential race. The site defines a "bundler" as someone who uses their influence, either as a private citizen or a lobbyist, to channel money to a candidate. The site is run by Public Citizen, which is Ralph Nader's public watchdog group. Let's just say I'm not a big fan of them or Nader but the info got me curious. However I certainly wasn't going to take it at face value given the source.

A search for "steve kupka, rudy
giuliani" returned another site that listed Kupka as being Giuliani's Nebraska finance chair. That would explain why he was listed as a bundler for Giuliani and yet has no information on how much money he actually channeled to him.

Why would Rob feel the need to use a D.C. lobbyist who works for a firm that does work for stem cell research and who on the side, tries to help the most liberal Republican Presidential candidate in history? Didn't Rob try to get Sam Brownback elected as President?

Goodness, what other "conservative" help does Rob have on his team?

Wasinger is pulling in liberal support from everywhere.

Sounds like Kupka is a real winner.

Has Tim ever taken money from DC? If he has.... I am THROUGH with him... plus he is a child molester (which doesn't hurt his chances -- just ask the various dioceses in New Mexico).

Billy Valentine out-did himself with those comments.

What a sad little boy he is.

Is that a cry for help Billy?

Makes sense. Huelskamp apparently likes taking pictures of little kids. Creepy.

Makes sense... when Huelskamp was at American University he was always into photography and younger boys. Never thought anything of it at the time, but I guess it has turned into a sort of fetish for Tim.
