Barrasso to Face Chesnut After Wacky Dem Primary

August 22, 2012
As for Chesnut, a Casper Star-Tribune story published in May stated that the Democrat said he shares Republican former Sen. Al Simpson's "politically incorrect sense of humor, as shown by his campaign slogan: 'Chesnut is the best nut for Senate.'" The paper also mentioned that Chesnut, who also helps the developmentally disabled as an employee of The Arc, "doesn't fit the mold of a conventional Senate candidate. Despite working two jobs, he needed help from the Albany County Democrats to pay the state's $200 candidate filing fee. He also has multiple sclerosis, which he said often keeps him in a wheelchair." That $200 charge brought forth an accusation from Hamburg that the local Democratic committee illegally contributed to his campaign. Chesnut later said he meant to say that an individual from the committee was helping him before he decided to just go ahead and pay the $200 himself. After all, according to Albany County Democratic Party Chairwoman Erin O'Doherty via the Star-Tribune, "He certainly didn't get any money from us because we don't have the money." Surmised Hamburg: "The Democrat Party's always crazy when I'm on the ballot."
