Celebvocate: Michael Kutcher, Ashton's twin brother, lobbies for cerebral palsy funding


Kutcher, right, met with home-state Sen. Chuck Grassley on the Hill. (Reaching for the Stars)

An occasional look at the star-dusted army marching on Washington almost every day in hopes of illuminating us. Tuesday's VIP foot soldier: Michael Kutcher.
Site: Hart Senate Office Building.
Cause: Lobbying with Reaching for the Stars, a foundation for children with cerebral palsy.
Bona fides: The 33-year-old financial-services guy from Iowa was born with cerebral palsy. And he's Ashton Kutcher's twin.
What he wants: $10 million in federal research funds.
How he looked: No resemblance, really, to his movie-star brother (they're fraternal, not identical). Short hair, glasses, gray suit, silver tie.
How he sounded: Articulate, laid-back, friendly.
Quote: "I realize that, being a public figure, so to speak, due to my family 'celebrity happenings,' or however you want to phrase it, people take notice when I speak. So I'm going to use that in my favor and be an advocate."
Seen Ashton lately? "He and Demi just came back to visit last weekend. We tweet each other a lot."
Whom we passed up for him: "Twilight's" Kellan Lutz touting dropout prevention on the Mall with America's Promise.
