Rudy G Only Loves Millionaires

So Rudy "G-Man" Giuliani only hangs out with the rich folk. You know, the salt of the earth.

OLIN–Last weekend Deb and Jerry VonSprecken of Olin received a call from former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani's campaign office asking them if they would be interested in holding a campaign rally on May 4, after she had donated to his campaign.
"We thought it would be an honor and agreed," said Jerry.

On Tuesday Deb received a call from Giuliani's Des Moines office and was asked to call New York.
"They wanted to know our assets," she revealed, and added that she and Jerry have a modest 80 acre farm and raise cattle.

Later she received a call from Tony Delgado at the Des Monies location.

"Tony said, 'I'm sorry, you aren’t worth a million dollars and he is campaigning on the Death Tax right now.' then he said they weren’t going to be able to come," Deb continued.

The Death Tax is a federal version of the Iowa Inheritance Tax.

The VonSpreckens then called Delgado back and told him how upset they were that the event had been cancelled, how much work they had done and that they had been expecting 75-100 people at their farm.

"I invited him into my home," Deb said of Giuliani, fighting back tears.

Greg Sargent asks, "Does anyone doubt that if John Edwards or any other Dem did this it would be covered by all the major networks and chewed over endlessly by cable chat-show hosts for days and days and days?"
