Not a Millionaire? Oh, Rudy will have to Cancel.

Republican Presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani snubbed an Iowa couple -- because they weren't millionaires.

That's the story Deb and Jerry VonSprecken are telling.

First they got a call from Mr Giuliani's campaign asking if they'd host a campaign rally May 4. They agreed and went to work organizing it, inviting people, and planning for a big crowd on the farm.

Then Mr Giuliani's people brought up money. From the Anamosa Journal-Eureka of Jones County, Iowa:

“They wanted to know our assets,” she revealed, and added that she and Jerry have a modest 80 acre farm and raise cattle.

Later she received a call from Tony Delgado at the Des Monies location.

“Tony said, ‘I’m sorry, you aren’t worth a million dollars and he is campaigning on the Death Tax right now.’ then he said they weren’t going to be able to come,” Deb continued.

Now that's just embarassing. They may do that sort of thing in New York City -- but pull something like that in Iowa, and you're off the guest list for the next hoedown! (Anamosa Journal-Eureka)
