Jack Wu, who's been associated with the highly controversial Westboro Baptist Church, is vying for a spot on the Kansas State Board of Education. The anti-evolution, fundamentalist Christian candidate has raised no money, and spent none, according to recently released campaign records, but some say that may not matter in his conservative district.
According to the Associated Press, Wu said he has always planned to spend nothingon his campaign in the state's 4th District. Wu, the GOP candidate, recently had to file his official campaign reports, and the documents confirm he has collected only $5 in cash contributions, received $9.99 in donated goods and services, and spent zero.
Among those is Wu's connection to the widely unpopular Westboro Church. According to Raw Story, Wu has said he attends their services, but is not a member. The Topeka-based organization is infamous for picketing the funerals of military service members and carrying obscene, anti-LGBT signs.
According to his website, Wu is running in order to "to throw out the crap that teachers are feeding their students and replace it with healthy good for the soul knowledge from the holy scriptures."
