A Last-Minute Save!
Kind of makes your wallet feel all warm and fuzzy!
Just 14 hours after I stated that Huckabee knew where the money was (see last blog below), evangelical advisor, Doug Wead stated this on his blog:
A few months ago, the Mike Huckabee campaign finally started the work of touching base with evangelical leaders of influence. Among others, they met with Ken Copeland, one of the nation’s top televangelists. Last night the Governor called his friend in the middle of a conference and Copeland, carefully observing all the laws governing non profits, as a private citizen, re-convened a private meeting, turned to his friends and raised a few million dollars for Huckabee.
And Sarah Posner of The American Prospect said it better than anyone:
Meanwhile, don't any of these Republicans question campaign fundraising for a presidential candidate by someone who is being investigated by a Republican Senator for his own fundraising?
I hope Senator Grassley is reading this.
So, will Ken Copeland become the U.S. Amassador to the U.N., The Court of St. James or maybe even (gasp!) Swaziland? (Well, at least he's not an alumni of Skull 'n Bones.)
