The Dirt on Joe the Plumber

Joe does make less than $250,000 and would be receiving Obama's tax cuts.

The Chronicle
"Joe the Plumber," the Toledo, Ohio, man whose complaints about Barack Obama's tax plan were featured in the final presidential debate, owes the state of Ohio almost $1,200 in back income taxes.

According to records on file with the Lucas County Court of Common Pleas, the state filed a tax lien against Samuel J. Wurzelbacher (Joe the Plumber) for $1,182.98 on Jan. 26, 2007, that is still active.
Also, Wurzelbacher told the Associated Press earlier today he doesn't have a plumber's license and doesn't need one.

Wurzelbacher said he works for a small plumbing company that does residential work. Because he works for someone else, he doesn't need a license, he said.

But the county Wurzelbacher and his employer live in, Lucas County, requires plumbers to have licenses. Neither Wurzelbacher nor his employer are licensed there...

And this just in. But it seems far fetched. Joe the Plumber may be related to the Charles Keating.
