So much better than more clothes from Kmart

December 16, 2006 09:32 AM

Remember back before the election, when Kimball Perry from the Enquirer reported that Hamilton County Commission Candidate David Pepper grew up wearing clothes from Kmart, was reared by parents who "never indulged him," and comes from a family that has never inherited a dime?

The whole gist of the story was that nobody's ever given David anything.  Remember that?

Well, the Enquirer's Howard Wilkinson reports this morning that during the late days of the campaign, David got a $450,000 campaign contribution.

From his parents.

It's so hard to make it in this world, when no one gives you anything, isn't it?


Unlike say, Phil Heimlich, who has plenty of trust fund income from his dad (Henry Heimlich), his grandfather (Arthur Murray) and his grandmother (Kathryn Murray).

Yeah, Phil is a real man of the people.

I'm not sure the initial statement was necessarily pro-Phil Heimlich. Rather, it was a clarification of David Pepper's actual upbringing. I'm not sure why Pepper tries to hide the fact that he, too, is a trust fund baby. Wouldn't it only add to the line of pathetic women, like Leslie Ghiz, who drool over him? Of course, his mommy may not like that too much.
