The muscle behind the anti-incumbent tide



In Hernando County, a central figure in the anti-incumbent push to ouster county commissioners is putting his money where his mouth is.

It's not the $25,000 he promised to spend. But so far, Blaise Ingoglia — home builder, professional poker player and driving force behind last summer's Government Gone Wild seminars — spent $6,000 supporting County Commission candidates, even multiple candidates in the same race. The real push, he said, will start after voters decide in Tuesday's primary who's left standing.

UPDATE:  Ingoglia is also using the Web to spread his gospel. Check out his new site, Hernando Truth.
