“A consummate Obama fundraiser known for his abusive style, Kirk Wagar was invited to Obama’s first state dinner, appointed to the Export-Import Bank advisory committee for fiscal year 2011, and has now been nominated as ambassador to Singapore.
While acting as Obama’s de facto communications director in Florida, Wagar helped to raise $4.5 million for Obama’s 2008 election and then raised at least $1 million for his reelection campaign.
After Obama won the 2008 primary in Florida, Wagar coordinated the ousting and replacement of already designated Florida delegates to the Democratic National Convention that were seen as disloyal to Obama.
In an exchange with DNC member Jon Ausman, Wagar claimed Ausman “fucked us” and that if only the thirty people that were purged are upset “we have done pretty well.” The exchange appears to have started when Wagar objected to certain delegates “that have done nothing for Barack.””
