"Joe the Plumber" is Really "Joe the Plant"

Joe's Cover is Blown!

Joe Wurzelbacher (better known as "Joe the Plumber") from the Toledo event may not be a plumber at all. Joe is a close relative of Robert Wurzelbacher of Milford, Ohio. Who’s Robert Wurzelbacher? Only Charles Keating’s son-in-law and the former senior vice president of American Continental, the parent company of the infamous Lincoln Savings and Loan. The now retired elder Wurzelbacher is also a major contributor to Republican causes giving well over $10,000 in the last few years.

Here's the buzz from the internet:

  • Wurzelbacher, who says he was playing football outside with his son when he came upon the crowd gathered around Obama, was planted by the Republican party. This would explain how conservative sites got stories posted about him in advance of the debate and how easily everyone else found him for interviews.

Washinton Post item on Joe the Plumber: "Let me note that, on deadline late last night, our crack researchers were unable to find any record of a person by that name with a plumbing license in the state of Ohio." 10/17

Did the Republicans actually think they could put one over on us in these days of Internet access? THINK AGAIN! He's very likely not even a plumber.

  1. Does it really matter who Joe is? Plant or not doesn't mean anything. It's the idea of Joe,Pete,John,or Gary the plumber that is the point.

  2. Another point is the fact that this guy actually made $40K (not over $250K) and that he is not a licensed plumber. In fact he has appeared on several right-wing panels before the debate and referred to Obama as Sammy Davis Jr.

    Furthermore, this guy actually saves over $500 with Obama's plan as opposed to McCain's. What matters is the difference between the two plans. McCain will TAX HEALTH CARE BENEFIT. We don't need MORE TAXES! Vote Obama.
