For most of this year, Christopher Rants has been the one candidate who has aggressively attacked his opponents. Last summer, he questioned Bob Vander Plaats tenure at Opportunity unlimited. This fall he has relentlessly attacked Terry Branstad. To date, nobody has returned fire on Rants. The only shot any candidate has fired at Rants was from the Vander Plaats campaign. In a press release, Vander Plaats called him Chris “Ready, Fire, Aim” Rants. Cute, but not effective.
It was just a matter of time before Rants would push one of his opponents or allies to the brink. Yesterday, Kevin Hall of the Des Moines Examiner “stumbled” upon a new YouTube video. Let me tell you something, I’ve been blogging since February of 2006. I’ve never stumbled upon anything. Part of the reason is that I just don’t have the time to look, but the other reason is that I don’t need to look around for stuff because people make sure I see things. I’m sure this is the case from Mr. Hall.
The question at hand is who made the video. Maybe the Vander Plaats or Branstad campaigns grew tired of being terrorized by Christopher Ahmadinerants. Or maybe, it’s the Democrats having a little fun at Christopher’s expense.
Either way, somebody levied a pretty hard hitting attack on Rants. Rants doesn’t dispute the numbers mentioned in the video. Rants told the Examiner, “I haven’t bothered checking the breakdown of how much came from gambling related industries, or tobacco related industries, etc….I will accept their numbers at face value.”
Below if the video. You can read Hall’s entire article by clicking here.
