UPDATE: The floodgates have opened on Rob Wasinger today. In addition to the huge scoop below, check back later today when Dirt Diver will post an additional exclusive on the oft-ridiculed Wasinger for Congress campaign later this afternoon.
For the record, Dirt Diver is not picking on Rob Wasinger on purpose, that just happens to be all the ammo we’ve received so far. Dirt Diver will be happy to post viral videos about Tim Huelskamp or any other candidate – we just haven’t received any – yet. So, Wasinger fans, we’re waiting…
As if the GOP primary race in KS-01 wasn’t hot enough already, with the two leading Republican candidates each reporting $100,000 on hand, things suddenly just got a lot hotter.
A previously unheard of group calling itself “Coalition of Native Kansans” or “CoNK” for short, emailed a flattering message to Dirt Diver late Monday evening. The Diver was blind copied and thus it is impossible to tell what other influential members of the blogosphere or Kansas media may have received the video, but the intent is rather obvious – create a viral video to reinforce the message that Rob Wasinger hasn’t spent a lot of time in Kansas lately. There are a few other clues in the video which we’ll get around to disecting later. For now, it’s a pretty funny shot across the SS Wasinger’s bow.
Attention Influential Member of the Kansas media/blogosphere:
As you know, there is an important contest taking place in the 1st Congressional District of Kansas (KS-01), and we, the members of the Coalition of Native Kansans (CoNK) would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of the candidates to the race. As a non-partisan group, it is our desire to educate all Kansans on the rich history of Kansas.
It has come to our attention that one of the candidates, Mr. Rob Wasinger, recently moved to Kansas from his home state of Virginia. As such, the members of CoNK wish to extend to Mr. Wasinger and his family a warm CoNK welcome to the Sunflower State, and we further extend an offer of Kansas history lessons and other state cultural education to Mr. Wasinger and the members of his campaign team so that he may more equitably compete with other candidates who have spent more time in the state.
Welcome to Kansas, Mr. Wasinger. Please enjoy this little welcome video we prepared especially for you.

And with that, I was directed to a link on YouTube, which Dirt Diver has posted below for your viewing pleasure.
