Say it Ain't So: Joe the Plumber Is So Busted

I was so tired of hearing about Joe the Plumber after last night, until I heard he's not really a licensed plumber, he did not apprentice, and he owes back taxes. Ouch.

UPDATE: Ironically, the Ohio GOP may have just prevented their newly adopted symbol, "Joe the Plumber" from voting on Nov. 4:
On Tuesday, a federal court ruled in favor of the Ohio Republican Party, allowing Ohio poll observers to force all voters whose registrations don’t match other state databases to fill out provisional ballots, which are “used to record a vote if a voter’s eligibility is in question and the voter would otherwise not be permitted to vote at his or her polling place.” As a result, “more than 200,000 registered Ohio voters may be blocked from casting regular ballots on Election Day.”

Because Wurzelbacher is misregistered as “Worzelbacher,” he may be one of the voters caught up in the misguided system.
