Iowa Independent: Fallon lashes out at Culver

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Former State Rep. Ed Fallon (D-Des Moines) has released a statement
through I'M For Iowa, his for-profit advocacy business, lashing out at
Gov. Chet Culver for not listening to his concerns. Culver defeated
Fallon in the Democratic primary for governor in 2006. The I'M For
Iowa press release alleges that Fallon and his group have contacted
Culver's office several times without responses, and that he has only
gotten to meet with the governor once. Fallon makes no mention of a
possible primary challenge to Culver in 2010, and it is not clear what
other means of leverage he might have on the governor. Still, he is
probably the highest-profile Democrat to make his concerns about
Culver public in such a direct way.
