Those Family Values Republicans are at it again….
This district is very close to Jerry Falwell’s Christian Indoctrination Camp (AKA Liberty University) and in about the most conservative part of Virginia….
I actually managed a campaign against the guy who is retiring twentysome years ago. I know this district well. I’m going to have to pay more attention to the local Virginia press on this one. This could get really good….
Apparently we have a potentially felonious “ex” Lesbian running against a guy convicted of drunk driving and carrying a concealed weapon for the State Senate? That’s just on the “conservative” GOP and GOP “Leaning” side.
Sounds like typical Virginia Republicans to me….
The Dems seem to be staying out of this and letting the GOP do their dirty work for them….
I encourage you to click through the link and read the whole story. Truth is truly stranger than fiction…..You can’t make this stuff up!
From Jonathan Turley:
An interesting story out of Appomattox, Virginia, and one that hits closer to home than I originally thought. Anti-Gay lobbyist and former deputy clerk of the Virginia House of Delegates, Linda Wall, wants to put her conservative ideology to work for the citizens of Appomattox, Virginia in the election for the Commonwealth’s 59th District House seat. Running as an independent, she describes herself as a “Republican-leaning conservative.” Her campaign slogan is: “A Campaign of Protection and Restoration.” But the place where our Country was reunited in 1865, is wondering just what kind of “protection” she’s talking about and has a real dilemma on its hand since Wall admitted a lesbian affair with one of her junior high students in the early 1970s.
