Iowa Insider: Culvers stay at Knapp's Florida property on vacation, but paid for their stay, an aide says
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Insider
Iowa Gov. Chet Culver and his family stayed at Iowa real estate mogul
and major Democratic donor Bill Knapp's property during a trip to the
Sunshine State last month. But the Culvers didn't stay there for free,
spokesman Brad Anderson said. The governor paid to stay there
beforehand, according to Anderson, although he did not know the
amount. Anderson points out the families are close friends. "Bill
Knapp has been friends to his family for 40 years now," Anderson said.
Knapp co-chaired Culver's 2006 gubernatorial campaign and co-chaired
Culver's inaugural committee with his wife, Susan Knapp.
