Last night, John McCain decided he wasn't going far enough by destroying his political career and Sarah Palin's political career, so he eviscerated the life of a plumber in Ohio. Before the debate, Joe the Plumber was just a guy who asked Obama some questions on the street. Now he's a tax cheating, jobless liar.
A check of state and local licensing agencies in Ohio and Michigan shows no plumbing licenses under Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher’s name, or even misspellings of his name.Oops. Turns out you need one of those to work as a plumber in Toledo. So, no more work for Joe.
Mr. Wurzelbacher said he works under Al Newell’s license, but according to Ohio building regulations, he must maintain his own license to do plumbing work.
He is also not registered to operate as a plumber in Ohio, which means he’s not a plumber.
To make matters worse, the Blade also found that the Ohio Department of Taxation placed a lien against Joe because $1,183 in personal property taxes had not been paid.Hey! A tax cheat. Now that is the kind of guy you want to bring up in a debate.
To pile on, the paper disclosed, based on divorce records, Joe's 2006 income — $40,000, hardly enough to qualify for the tax hike he's so concerned about.And yet, Joe's worried about Obama taxing people who make over $250,000 a year. Joe is an idiot and so is McCain. Oh, and he finally got around to voting, at the age of 34.
He voted in his first primary on March 4 of this year, registering as a Republican.Joe, you are officially ruined as a human being. Good luck and congrats on your party! Vote McCain!
