The man who dared to stand on principle and tell President Barack Obama he lied, on national television, had an awesome fundraising "quarter." Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) received nearly $2.7 million in political donations, most of it after the infamous event on live television when he yelled out "You Lie."
Before discussion begins that this "disrespected" the presidency - I'll say that I'm over that. Never before in our our lifetime have we had a president stand before us so many times and lie each and every time.
Wilson's Democrat opponent, Rob Miller, reportedly raised $1.7 million in the same time period, and Democrats are vowing that Miller will succeed Wilson in the House in 2010.
