OH-02 Dem Vic Wulsin: Amends Financial Disclosure Report

CINCINNATI (TDB) -- Democratic congressional candidate Vic Wulsin has amended her personal financial disclosure report to show she did not receive $114,240 in payments from Soteni. Wulsin, a physician, leads the non-profit organization Soteni, which assists Kenyans in public health, AIDs eradication and economic issues. The OH-02 Democrat's campaign was preparing for attacks, and said it could head them off with revised financial disclosure reports that show Wulsin contributed services to the charity worth at least $114,240. She changed the financial report late last year. According to a Wulsin insider:

"She (originally) reported it as salary. She was told erroneously that she had to report the value of what she had done. She calculated it as the value of the time put in to the organization in '06."

Wulsin faces Steve Black in the March Democratic primary for Ohio's 2nd Congressional District. Republican U.S. Rep. Jean Schmidt now holds the seat.


  1. And she thinks she's ready to go to Congress? If she can't even follow the law and get a simple form filled out right, how in the hell is she going to accomplish anything in Congress? This shows that she's not ready to deal with the real problems facing our country. If you made a mistake this big, it shouldn't take you seven months to correct it. She's either aloof and disrespects the law, or she was lying and realized that she was eventually going to get caught. We don't need more of this in Congress.

  2. Wow. It took her 6 months to catch this error and fix it. This is definitely not the kind of leader we need representing us. Remember, George Bush is the CEO President who doesn't want details - look where that's gotten us.

  3. Are you kidding me... How do you mix that up? Don't people go to jail for those kinds of 'mixups' on their tax forms? Devil is kind of in the details when you're a congressman.

    Couldn't it be Wulsin amended her report after The Whistleblower Newsletter reported her perfidy just two days ago? What timing!

  5. Sounds like a bunch of horse crap. Not what you wrote Bill, but this BS story you were told. Wulsin reports her "donation of time" as receiving a salary first, then as an in-kind donation of time - huh? So Wulsin originally thought that her DONATED time should be reported as salary - what? Then she says that was wrong and reports it as a donation. This really sounds like some sort of cover-up to me. They got called on it, knew it looked bad, said it was bad advice, and tried to change it to make it look good. DemocRATS - don't do as I do, do as I say, because it's alright if I do it, but not alright if you do it. Liars, cheats and thieves. Rich DemocRATS are the worst of them all.

    Wulsin tries hard to portray herself as a friendly easy-going person. I think her threatening to sue someone in "Common Pleas court" for writing the truth about her relationship and money transactions with Soteni shows her true vicious and mean spirit. Wulsin knows the difference between salary and in-kind. This is backfiring on her, isn't it? How about "Mean Vic Wulsin"?
