The Iowa Republican: Culver lashes out against former Governor Branstad at state sponsored meeting
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
Governor Chet Culver held a town hall meeting of sorts yesterday morning at the Cub Club at Principal Park in Des Moines. The event, called "Coffee & Conversation with Governor Chet Culver," was an informal meet and greet event in which Governor Culver worked the room while attendees sipped on coffee and juice and enjoyed a muffin or fresh fruit. The meeting was not supposed to be a campaign event. It was organized, staffed, and paid for with taxpayer money. Governor Culver was escorted around the room by an aide and Jim Larew, Culver's Chief Legal Counsel, who also seems to serve as the governor's political lawyer.
