Chet Culver Wears Slot Machine Tie While Denying Touch Play
Des Moines - CBB has learned that Chet Culver has paraded around like a
dandy wearing his favorite tie, which was given to him personally by Bill
Krause, CEO of Kum and Go and an active supporter of Touchplay machines. To
make matters worse, Culver was wearing the tie when CBB news correspondent
Mike Raker caught up with Chet while he stumped in Lake Okoboji's famed
Arnold's Park resort earlier today. Here is an excerpt of what transpired:
M.R. : "Mr. Culver, I've noticed that you're wearing a slot machine tie.
Does that indicate your feelings toward the expansion of gambling in Iowa?"
C.C. : "I've been looking for the University of Okoboji all day... do you
know where the campus is ?"
M.R. "Uhh, actually I think that's just a... nevermind. Anyway, about that
C.C. "This tie has video games on it. Sometimes you can win money on these
video games. Pretty neat-o, huh?"
C.C. "Say, Mike, I've been thinking about trying out my new slogan for the
state of Iowa in my stump speech here today, what do you think about 'Lakes
of Opportunity!' ? Whoops, there's my dad John Culver former Senator from
Iowa pointing at his watch... I gotta go talk now, BYE."
Special thanks to Mike Raker, Chief Political News Correspondent for getting
the dirt on this one.
