Halliburton Lobbyist Blames Wife for Green Party Donation

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

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.”
