Crooks and Liars has this really detailed piece. Sounds like the McCain camp (again) did not do a good job of vetting. link here
"Joe the Plumber's story sprang a few leaks Thursday. Turns out that the man who was held up by John McCain as the typical, hard-working American taxpayer isn't really a licensed plumber. And court documents show he owes nearly $1,200 in back taxes.
"Joe," whose name is Samuel J. Wurzelbacher, was cited repeatedly in Wednesday night's final presidential debate by McCain for questioning Barack Obama's tax policy."
It's like a train wreck... or an auto accident. Hasn't McCain (and the RNC, and the White House) figured out yet, in this modern age, that statements WILL BE vetted?
