Krusty Konservative: Mike Blouin defends Bob Vander Plaats

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

Today there was KUNI radio debate between Democrats Mike Blouin, and Ed Fallon. Chet Culver didn't attend. I don't think he could squeeze himself into the studio.

Ed Fallon took advantage of the situation and attacked Blouin about the Values Fund. Fallon said "I do think the size of campaign donations makes a difference and I'll give you once example," Fallon said. "(Former Republican gubernatorial candidate) Bob Vander Plaats got $100,000 from the CEO of Wells Dairy. Now, he's not the only one to have received significant contributions from Mike Wells and others with that company over the years. Wells Dairy is no stranger to getting nice tax breaks and even Values Fund grants from the state. I don't think you can possibly say there's not a connection."
