CORRECTION UPDATE: According to Open Secrets.org, Rep. Joe Wilson’s second-highest campaign contributor during his eight years in Congress is the financial, real estate and insurance sector at $455,129; corporate for-profit health care is third at $414,246. ‘Misc Business’ is number one at $481,252.
Some folks think it’s more than a coincidence that someone just happened to catch a perfect high res photo of Wilson exactly during the split second he made his outburst, but of course that’s just coincidence theory.
That is curious, Nolo. Still, the photo portrayed him as a “You kids get off my lawn” kind of guy, which didn’t help McCain any.
