Joe the Plumber gets book deal, skips Vegas event
The Las Vegas Review-Journal Norm Clarke reports that Joe the Plumber (aka Joe Wurzelbacher) backed out of being among the celebrities to headline the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas. The event is the world's largest gaming trade show. Clarke said Joe the Plumber is busy working on his second 15 minutes of fame. Wurzelbacher missed the Las Vegas event to attend another event in Los Angeles. Clark also reported that Wurzelbacher was working on a book. Clarke wrote: "He settled on Austin, Texas, writer and publisher Tom Tabback to help him write 'Joe the Plumber -- Fighting for the American Dream.' It is to be released Dec. 1."
