Cynthia Ruccia Didn't Put Her Money Where Her Mouth Was
Remember Cynthia Ruccia? She’s the former Democratic Party leader from my home of Columbus, Ohio who declared during the summer of 2008 that she would not support Barack Obama for President and instead would throw her support to John McCain, because hey, the overturning of Roe v. Wade is not such a big deal compared to how mean Obama apparently was to Hillary Clinton. Ruccia reiterated her “support” for John McCain in October of 2008.
It turns out that according to FEC data, while Cynthia Ruccia has given thousands of dollars to campaigns and politicians over the years, she never actually gave a penny to the campaign of John McCain.
