Dear fellow tax hikers, we have learned that our friend Crystal Faulkner Cooney is upset - no, OFFENDED - that she is not getting enough credit for her Republican donations. We wouldn't want to offend MS. Faulkner, so we're going to skip our scheduled edition of The Crystal Faulkner Democratic Donation of the Week and instead highlight one of her best Republican donations.
When Crystal isn't donating to Democrats like David Pepper, Chris Seelbach, and Mark Mallory, she does indeed support some Republicans. Such as the highly ethical former Congressman Jean Schmidt.
When it was time to defeat that conservative veteran Brad Wenstrup again, Crystal stepped up to the plate by donating $300 to the embattled Jean Schmidt. This was not the first time MS. Faulkner worked against Wenstrup - she also supported Mayor Mark Mallory against him in 2009.
By supporting Jean Schmidt, MS. Faulkner demonstrated her support for:
- higher Sales Taxes
- Wall Street bailouts
- higher Gas Taxes
- more food stamps
- higher hotel/motel taxes; AND
- Jean Schmidt's incredibly high ethical standards
Nobody understands better than Crystal Faulkner the need to keep Brad Wenstrup from serving the public. That's why she supports Democrats and Republicans alike to take him down. This year Wenstrup is facing four Democratic opponents for his seat in Congress. Which one of them will MS. Crystal Faulkner Cooney support?
