Question of the Day
Mrs. Bachmann grew up in Waterloo, and used the town as the backdrop for her campaign announcement, where she told Fox News: “Well, what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That’s the kind of spirit that I have, too.”
John Wayne, the movie legend, was in fact from Iowa and the John Wayne birthplace is a celebrated landmark - only it’s in Winterset, which is a nearly three hour-drive away from Waterloo.
Gacy, though, had his first taste of the criminal life in Waterloo, where he lived for a short time, and where he had his first criminal conviction for an attempted homosexual assault, which landed him in prison for 18 months.
He moved back to Illinois, where his killing spree started, and lasted about six years. In 1980 he was convicted on 33 counts of murder, and was executed in 1994.
The Bachmann campaign sent this explanation: “John Wayne is from Iowa, his parents lived in Waterloo.”
Sources: Haley will veto presidential primary bill
COLUMBIA — Two officials close to South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley say she will veto a plan to use taxpayer money to pay for the first-in-the-South Republican presidential primary.
The officials are familiar with Mrs. Haley’s decision and spoke Monday on condition of anonymity. The Republican governor will make an announcement on Tuesday.
Mrs. Haley had warned lawmakers not to put taxpayer cash toward the primary. Still, the state budget would spend up to $680,000 on the contest.
Mrs. Haley’s expected veto may not be that much of an impediment to the primary.
