David Kuo for Obama?
David Kuo, the former Deputy Director of the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, has not made any public endorsement but has offered support to Senator Obama's presidential race by making a $250 campaign contribution. Kuo is a devout Christian who authored the book Tempting Faith, a political and spiritual memoir of his time in Washington working with the so-called "religious right". In the book, he documents that President Bush's "compassionate conservative" promises were never fulfilled and used for primarily political purposes — a claim that was echoed by the first Director of the Office, Catholic scholar John DiIulio. Kuo also claimed that the Bush administration used Christian voters while simultaneously ridiculing Christian political leaders.
David is a long time Republican Activist and remains an important voice in the Evangelical community. For the last several years David has been battling cancer. For a long time it looked like he was not going to make it, but reports are that things are looking better.
