This morning I spoke with the Halliburton lobbyist who gave $1,000 to the Luzerne County (PA) Green Party.
“It was my wife” who made the contribution, Bill Wichterman told me. Wichterman, a well-connected GOP lobbyist, presumably backs Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), his onetime employer.
So, do the Wichtermans have a wacky Dharma-and-Greg thing going on? I asked Bill if his wife was a Green Party member.
“I’m not going to answer any questions about it,” he replied.
Well, would your wife be willing to discuss the contribution?
“No, she wouldn’t.”
